Tahina (Invited)

Have you ever had one of those days when it's cold, and all you want to do is eat something warm and meaty? I was surprised how eating the flavoursome vegetarian fare 'cured' my it's-cold-and-dreadful feels. Tahina serves creative, Middle-Eastern inspired vegan and vegetarian fare.

We were seated in front of our charismatic chef, Roy, and we were really impressed by how effortlessly he cooked and seasoned everything! We first tried the Shakshuka, which was a baked egg dish. The tomato base was very rich and packed with flavour, and the ooziness of the eggs went really well with the pita pockets we had on the side.

Next up was the Falafel Salad served on a bed of hummus, Israeli salad, spicy green salad and pickled cabbage topped with tahini. I was surprised to find that there were two 'coloured' falafels as I sliced them open. The orange was my favourite personally, but both were really crisp and tasty.

We were also served their popular Monkey Salad consisting of quinoa, roasted sweet potato, corn, broccoli and avo topped with  spiced dukkah chickpeas. First up, the chickpeas were so delish. Crisp and not at all bland! The dressing was light, zingy with just the right amount of spiciness. We also tried their specialty, a Hot Dog! The sauces were well balanced, but the most impressive thing about this dish is the actual 'Dog' which looks exactly like a sausage, but is actually a carrot! The carrot is marinated so well, it tasted fantastic.

Our favourite dish though was the Roasted Eggplant with hummus and zaatar kale chips. The eggplant was sweet and tangy, as we absolutely adored the contrast from the kale chips. Simply addictive!
