Last Chance For A While

IMG_2034

This weekend, 20th & 21st April will be the last chance to eat Herbivore food at the Embassy Cafe for a little while – it’s time for the annual trip to Sicily. Saturday 20th is business as usual with a menu featuring the plate pictured above: grilled polenta | braised beets & beluga lentils | roast cherry tomatoes. Details here. On Sunday we have the 3 course Easter Lunch and a shorter version of the Saturday menu.

Re open on Saturday 18th May.

Eggless Easter Sunday Lunch

There are no supper clubs in the Herbivore diary at the moment but we are pleased to offer a three course vegan Sunday lunch on Easter Day – 21st April at the Embassy Cafe, Cathays Terrace, Cardiff:

Wye Valley Asparagus | Burnt Onion Raita | Date & Tamarind

Celeriac & Hazelnut Roast | Grilled Spring Cabbage | Rosemary Roasties | Onion & Cider Gravy

Rhubarb & Almond Crumble | Vanilla Ice Cream | Pomegranate Syrup

It’s £18 per person, BYO (nor corkage charge) and we are serving from 12 – just book a time slot that’s convenient to you: simon@theherbivore.co.uk. As ever, limited spaces so don’t sleep on it.

Closed Sunday 24th March

Thanks to the collaborative fundraiser with Riverside Sourdough we’re able to have a new sink unit installed in our kitchen. The bad news is that we’ll have to close for a day to do it. Business as usual on Saturday (menu here) but closed Sunday.

Back To The Fig Tree

March sees Herbivore setting up temporary camp at The Fig Tree on Penarth’s seafront with an all vegan 5 course dinner menu for two consecutive nights. Same food, special location. Bookings for this one are being taking care of by the restaurant: give ‘em a call on 029 2070 2512.DSCN9282

Fundraiser

IMG_8842

To raise some cash for essential improvements to the Embassy Cafe’s kitchen, Herbivore and Riverside Sourdough (the weekday Embassy Cafe people) are collaborating on a five course vegan supper club. All the staff are giving their time for free so that once we’ve covered the ingredients costs every penny can go into the improvements pot. Menu coming very soon – first course likely to be something straight out of the Riverside Sourdough bakery ovens and then two Herbivore courses and two from the amazing Chef Table Manners (who is at the Embassy stover Monday to Friday). This one will fill super-fast, so don’t sleep on it.

Sell Out

Well, the Herbivore058: All Over The Place supper club at the Embassy Cafe has sold out in a matter of hours – I didn’t even get as far as putting the details on this site. Look out for another date to be announced soon – something a bit different this time.

Meanwhile weekend business continues at the Embassy Cafe. Menu here.

 

Herbivore back in business/Veganuary

Even on a grey New Year’s Day you can still spot the green shoots of life in the hedgerows (and walls) of Wales – this is Pennywort tasting fresh and succulent at Ogmore. Expect to see it on the next supper club menu. Date and details coming soon.

Herbivore now back in business at the Embassy Cafe Saturdays and Sundays 11 – 5.

Much as I hate the word, we will be honouring Veganuary at the Embassy Cafe. Not much change really as most of the weekend menus are fully vegan anyway but we’ll go the full Kevin for the rest of the month. This weekend’s menu here.

Christmas Closing

Our last weekend at the Embassy Cafe this year will be the 15th and 16th of December – and on Saturday 15th we’ll be closing at 4pm to get ready for a private party in the evening. Re-open on Saturday 5th January for normal business but also open on New Year’s Eve (bookings only).

Happy New Year to you all.

New Year’s Eve 18/19

We’ve already started bookings for New Year’s Eve at the Embassy Cafe where we’ll be seeing out the old year with some plates of food inspired by the sunnier climes of the Mediterranean with some bright flavours and colours to drive away the winter gloom. It’s £30 per person with BYOB and no corkage charge. Full menu coming soon.

Supper Club Sell Outs

The last Herbivore Supper Club at the Embassy Cafe sold out in a matter of hours but luckily we still have spaces left for the two nights in the bigger venue of The Fig Tree in Penarth and have just posted up the menu for the next Cardiff date: Herbivore 056: Untitled 6th December at the Embassy Cafe. Details of both of these events can be found on the Supper Clubs page.
