It’s ideal timing.
If you plan on going vegan in 2020, a Cork restaurant is hosting a five-week pop-up menu that will make the transition much easier.
Vish, a new plant-based concept, opens at Electric on the South Mall on January 10th, 2020, running every Friday and Saturday until February 8th.
Whether you’re vegan or just vegan-curious, the menu looks very enticing indeed, with starters such as Avocado Arancini with confit garlic aioli and Palm Heart Calamari with lemon and caper.
The ‘Vish & Chips’ involves marinated banana blossom in a samphire batter served with twice-cooked fries and vegan tartar sauce.
With a Winter Warmer Hot Pot and BBQ Bao buns on offer too and a decadent dessert menu (we’re already eyeing the deep fried cinnamon donut with blueberry non-dairy ice cream) even dedicated carnivores are likely to be convinced to skip the meat at least once a week.
Three courses for €30
With three courses for €30, it’s also a bargain night out during the dullest month of the year.
“We asked each of our chefs to come up with their own menu and each one will run for a weekend.” says Electric owner Ernest Cantillon.
“Looking forward to seeing whose menu is the most popular and trying some of the unusual dishes.”
Bookings are already being taken for January on 021 4222 990.
Here’s a look at the first menu:
