The Vegan Food
The staff team at breakfast (currently served in Rox) were initially a little confused as to which of the many vegetarian dishes contained butter ghee. However, Chef Gopal was my saviour with clear and concise explanations as to which dishes were suitable for vegans. The breakfast buffet contained idli, sambar and chutneys which as always were the perfect vegan breakfast combo. There was a flavourful vegetable broth with ‘extras’ including ginger, carrot, spring onion and roasted garlic waiting to be added, making a very tasty soup. The puri, vada and stir fried vegetables in sauce were all vegan too, but the other veggie dishes included butter ghee in their ingredients. An ‘off menu’ scrambled tofu was a pleasant surprise and a dish that we’d love to see featured on the new menus which are in development. One of the vegan buffet items was a tasty vegetable stir fry which we enjoyed with a duo of rice, the stir fried rice being our favourite and a perfect match for the flavourful and perfectly cooked veggies. As you would expect, there was plentiful fresh fruit and juices, bread with homemade jams and coffee or tea with soya milk available.
