In a statement, restaurant director, Warren Swaffield said they wanted to add something different to their menus and have come up with what they think is a range of dishes that will not only suit vegans but will also surprise those who think plant-based meals are boring, tasteless and limited to only raw vegetables and tofu.

“We hope that these additions to our March menus will attract not only vegans but also those who are curious about meat-free meals and a plant-based lifestyle,” said Swaffield. 

The menu at Cassia includes coconut and banana pancakes with pecan nuts and berry compote for breakfast or tian of lemon and basil risotto, barley and broccoli on a grilled field mushroom and aubergine in a spicy Szechuan sauce served with coconut-infused rice which is available for lunch and dinner, and desserts include pumpkin panna cotta with coconut ice cream or vegan crème Brulee with pistachio biscotti.
