Brunch. What does brunch mean? Is it A) Choosing a Bloody Mary. B) Choosing a mimosa or C) Choosing all of the above because it’s brunch and that’s what brunch truly means? Beside tasty cocktails in a variety of pastel colors being guzzled before 3 pm, brunch is also made up of delicious filling dishes, that usually aren’t vegan. Aster, a Nordic-French inspired restaurant in London, is making moves to change this.
Aster is launching its ‘Absolutely Vegan Brunch‘ menu ahead of Meat Free Week, and it’s options are impressive. Its brand new plant-based dishes will be released as part of a collaboration with Kete One, and vegan skincare line, Lumene. The menu, which came out June 10th, features a 2 to 3-course vegan brunch menu, complete with vegan Bloody Mary’s, a create-it-yourself station and tons of vegan skincare products.
You can join them every Sunday, from 11 am to 4 pm. A feature on the menu will also be a dish inspired by Lumene’s ‘Sisu’ product range, a Finish concept representing determination. Also on the menu, you will find gluten-free granola, coconut yogurt with a berry compote, teff pancakes with golden drizzle, mushrooms on toast and heritage tomatoes with baby basil.
All guests will also receive a complimentary gift bag filled with luxurious, vegan skincare goodies from Lumene.
What are you waiting for? Go enjoy some vegan brunch! Aster is located at 150 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 5LB.
