Sound delicious Anna. Thanks for sharing the recipes. I have had a curry once in the boma. I think it was a curry with chickpeas. It was amazing. Can you perhaps share that recipe sometime?

Thanks Marinda – i shall indeed!

Anna, I loved the burger🤗

Thanks Joan!

Thanks Anna, like the sounds of the hot marinated coleslaw as a side to this dish 👌🏻 A nice twist to a Thai coleslaw or the regular one.🙏🏻❤️

Thanks Cally – yes, this is one of my all time favourite ‘coleslaws’ and keeps well in the fridge for a week or so – it’s not too heavy as there’s no mayo.

Mmmm, will definitely try that thanks Anna. 😊.Yes I agree, prefer the no mayo style the Thai/Vietnamese slaw is lighter too.

The recipes sound great, a new culinary experience for my family.

Thanks Christa – yes, even if you start with just once a week! meatless monday burgers!

Big difference from the last post-the 1926 burger!
Willing to explore!

Thanks Vin! Yes, i had so many requests after the 1926 burger for a plant based version, so there you go!

Are you back?

Oh yum! I eat a predominantly plant based diet and I’m always looking for great meat-free alternatives, so I’m really excited to try this. Thank you Anna 🙂

Thanks Nicole! Fabulous to hear – keep an eye on the blog as i will be sharing a few more in the weeks to come!

Wow that looks so good – I don’t believe I’ve had it before! I must request it next time – and the Brinjal fries – yumm!

Thanks Kara – this recipe is an amended one of the old one we used to do, i tested it whilst on lockdown. The brinjal fries are indeed a massive win and go well with anything!

Interesting…. but as a carnivore who also loves vegetables, I’m sure I’ll be ordering the 1926 burger 🍔!

Thanks Denise! there’ll always be a choice!

Thanks for this! One of the best things we can do for the planet is eat no or less meat!

Thanks Linda!

Looks divine!!!! Hope to see this on the menu in July 2021, cannot wait to get back to Londo!

Thanks Lori! We can’t wait to see you either!

Thank you Anna. I had no idea you catered for vegans. As a vegan it’s often very difficult to go somewhere for a lengthy or even short stay and know you will be able to eat nutritious, healthy, tasty food. Can’t wait to try your recipes! Many, many thanks.

Thanks Jennifer – yes we have been doing so now for the past 3 years, it’s definitely a new lifestyle and many people enjoy having the choice especially after a 3 night stay if you want something a little lighter x

Thanks Jennifer! Yes, we offer a 365 day plant based menu and there is always a lot of choice!

Anna, These recipes look amazing (as always)! We will share with Chef Jamil at Michael’s On East to see what he can do with them for our restaurant!

Thanks Team Klauber! yes, i would love to see what Chef Jamil does with the recipe! Let me know and send a pic. xx

OMG! I’m like a little California valley girl when I gather this to my bosom. lol
You are a life saver and I hear that you heard me. What better communication can you give? I think the Beatles said it best, “I am you and you are me and he is she and we are all together…” (I’ll leave the rest out, because I believe it was about a part of the human condition and its commitment to suffering). But, your plant based burgers sound like the “cat’s meow”. Count me in! Thank you, Anna, for reassuring my palate.

Thank you Patrick! I am extremely happy it made your heart sing and especially with one of my all time favourite Bands!

This sounds terrific!!

Thank you Paul!
