Herbivore035: NYE Menu

Menu for the NYE tapas/small plates menu at the Embassy Cafe is now here. The ideal place to line your stomachs with vegan and vegetarian delights before heading off to celebrate the end of the world. I mean the end of the year,

Herbivore035: NYE 2016

We’re going to be seeing off the old year and welcoming in the new with a menu of tapas-style small vegan & vegetarian plates at the Embassy Cafe. We’re kicking off at 6pm so you can just drop in for a drink and a bite before heading off to crazy party land. Alternatively, grab a bottle of wine or two and settle in for the night. We’re not taking bookings as it’s not a set a meal – just order as much or as little as you like – but drop me a line if you’re planning to come to give me an idea of numbers. It’ll be a BYO night with a small corkage charge. Food menu coming very soon.

Embassy Cafe 17 | 12 | 2016

Herbivore at the Embassy cafe for the usual round of brunch, lunch & sweet treats Saturday 11 – 5. Won’t be there on Christmas Eve but back for New Years Eve with a special small plates menu running in the evening until late. More details coming soon.

Herbivore034: Black Christmas

It’s the darkest time of year with the added pressures of enforced jollity, good cheer and rampant consumerism.  So what better way than to escape it all for a few hours in the convivial setting of Kemi’s Cafe in Pontcanna and enjoy five courses of creative, seasonal, vegan cuisine? We’ve created a darkly delicious menu of hearty, slightly boozy, winter food for your enjoyment with a soundtrack by the deeply missed mighty Prince (Buster).  £25 pp Wednesday 14th December, 7m. Full menu here. None more black,

Herbivore034: Christmas Weds 14th Dec 7pm

Now taking bookings for our Christmas extravaganza at Kemi’s, Pontcanna. 4 courses of seasonal, creative, vegan cuisine for £25 pp. Menu coming very soon. Rest assured, it won’t be nut roast. As ever, limited spaces so be sure to book: simon@theherbivore.co.uk

Herbivore033: Counter Culture/Herbivore x Riverside Sourdough

The weekend of the 3rd & 4th December sees Herbivore teaming up with Riverside Sourdough to create a special brunch and lunch menu to showcase perhaps the best bread available in Cardiff right now.  Organic, handmade and bloody delicious. Everything will be freshly baked on the day – no menu details yet but expect things on toast, a sandwich or two, brioche, ice cream and croissant. More details about Riverside Sourdough and their products here.

The menu will be on offer for the usual Herbivore Embassy ours of 11 – 5 on both Saturday & Sunday. This one’s a la carte rather than supper club style so no need to book.


Herbivore032: Thanksgiving 23|11|2016

We’re ready to roll with bookings for our next supper club at Kemi’s in Pontcanna. With one eye on the end of harvest time in this country and one on events unfolding across the atlantic we’re going with a Thanksgiving theme. Some fantastic Welsh produce and some tired cliches come together to produce a five course vegan meal for £25. More details and menu here.

I reserve the right to change the title of the event to Bitter Harvest if it all goes tits up on election day.

Meat Free Monday

The date for our next Meat Free Monday Supper Club at Arboreal, Cowbridge is 7th November, 7pm.  Menu here.

4 courses of autumnal vegan cuisine for £18. Bookings: simon@theherbivore.co.uk

This Week’s Embassy Menu Is Brought To You By The Letter P

This week we’ve got pumpkin, panelle, pistachio & pain perdu. The latter (french for “lost bread”) is a french toast made with slices of brioche from Riverside Sourdough – a supper-rich sweet loaf that takes on lovely caramel tones once toasted or cooked. I’ll be topping this with sweetened ricotta whipped up with orange zest & fennel seed with a dollop of apple from Dinas Powys that has been cooked down with autumnal spices. Er, not vegan. Full menu here.
