Eat, Drink And Offset Your Carbon Footprint At Stem & Glory

May 30, 2022 Share

Vegan restaurant Stem & Glory made its way to London from Cambridge and continues to be a plant-based sensation.

Eager to find out what Stem & Glory had to offer on the vegan front, we wander the backstreets near Barbican station to find the somewhat hidden restaurant. Although difficult to find, one thing’s for certain: whether you’re going fully vegan or are just trying to be more mindful of your meat consumption, plant-based eating has never been so delicious.

Stepping into the restaurant, we are greeted by the wonderful Adil, who makes sure to seat us at what we are assured is the best seat in the house. The restaurant’s interiors are noticeably light and airy, with white tables and chairs, grey cushioned benches, and lots of greenery decorating the ceiling and bar area. After all, what’s a plant-based restaurant without plant decor? The open kitchen also means we get the opportunity to exercise our curiosity and observe the staff in action.

We consider what to order to start for a considerable amount of time, asking for a “just a few more minutes” more than once. We settle upon the swede gnocchi, which is peppery and moreish. Accompanied by a glass of the smoothest white wine ever, we are off to a good start. The only criticism? We wish there was more!

And for mains, well, it wouldn’t be a vegan meal without someone trying the faux meat burger now, would it? It certainly hits the plant-based fast-food spot, being just as juicy (and as messy!) as a meat burger. But the highlight of the night is the Sri Lankan Golden Curry. Not only does it look beautiful, but it tastes it too: it’s crunchy, fresh and fragrant. Unlike the burger, however, it leaves you satisfied but with room for dessert.

For dessert, there is no question – we are ordering the raw chocolate marble cake. The balance between both creamy and rich is perfectly struck and the grapefruit segments add a sharpness that feels somewhat necessary.

However, a trip to Stem & Glory isn’t just about the delicious food – it’s about being eco-conscious too. Adil explains to us that guests at Stem & Glory are encouraged to reuse their knives and forks after their starters, as well as using the same glass for each drink. Then, when we are presented with our bill, we are given the option to offset the carbon footprint of our meal. What a wonderful surprise to end a tasty meal at Stem & Glory.
