Catching up with a vegan friend after Christmas Mildred’s was a mutually convenient location for both of us, and a welcome return for me since visiting its Dalston site, oooh, five years ago or so.
The room was bright, if cramped, and nicely murmuring on a Friday lunchtime. The menu had a lot of stuff I liked the look of and quite a few things I didn’t know what it was. Up front I went for hummus, which was smooth as silk and had a sweetspicy harissa pooled along its edges. I scooped that up with pita (not enough pita as it turns out, this isn’t Green Lanes and you’re not on an all you can eat bread deal) and looked forward to what Kiri Hodi would be. Kiri Hodi turned out to be a delicious Asian vegetable stew, packed with flavour and big enough to last me through to the evening.
A carafe of Vinha Verde was very civilised alongside and with cheerful and enthusiastic service from the (many) staff Mildred’s is the best vegan food I’ve had in a long time. I suspect it won’t be 6 years before I’m back this time.
