Vegetarian-friendly options on the House of Boateng menu

Hippy Benny  Made with farm-fresh poached eggs, braised greens and wild mushrooms, this delightful dish comes with stinging nettle hollandaise on the side.

Tagine  North African root veggies, sweet and savory dried fruit compote and Greek-style preserved lemons are the perfect accompaniment to gently poached eggs from Stone Bridge Farm. Served with pearl couscous on the side, tagine can be vegan if you ask us to hold the eggs.

African Arancini   Bocconcini mozarella balls, spicy Ghana style tomato and shaved Parmesan cheese work together wonderfully to create a light lunch that won't weigh you down.

Croque Madame  Crafted with gruyere cheese and smoked soy tempeh, Croque Madame featured a sunnyside egg and Plot Market garden greens drizzled with spruce tip vinaigrette.

HOB Wrap Your choice of tortilla encloses a savory concoction of scrambled farm-fresh eggs, spiced beans, pickled veggies and African style joloff rice with cilantro.

Vegan Island Bowl Ancient grains, foraged sea vegetables, Japanese knotweed and smoked soy tempeh is artfully topped with toasted hemp seed and elderflower vinaigrette dressing for a light dish to remember.

Rasta Bowl Carrots and beets slivered and slawed with chayote squash and bulgur wheat are expertly accompanied by crispy fried plantain with mango-habanero salsa.

Of course, if you are a carnivore with an appetite, we offer a splendid selection of meaty dishes that are sure to satisfy. Try the Moroccan lamb Scotch eggs or smoked wild salmon to see precisely what we mean.
