The Cardamom Pod - I’ve heard about this hip, earthy and colourful vegetarian restaurant a couple of times now but never got to try it until last night!
Each set of tables was unique with plants, bright paintings and decorations surrounding you. The vibrant atmosphere was indeed very inviting.
We ordered a couple of dishes to share:
Chewy tomato and avocado salad
Pumpkin and feta salad with pomegranate seeds and quinoa
Sushi rice salad
Kofta ball salad with house-made creamy beetroot sauce
Mousaka with lentils and eggplant
These were definitely my favourites: tomato and avo salad, pumpkin and feta salad, kofta balls with beetroot sauce, pumpkin filo and the mousaka.
It’s often hard to find vegetarian restaurants that make really nice food, but The Cardamom Pod happens fit that description perfectly!
For desserts, we tried:
Pumpkin Cheesecake - Smooth and creamy texture of pumpkin with a dash of ginger mascarpone
Vanilla bean cheesecake topped with berries
Chocolate tart with poached pears
In terms of desserts, they were all too rich and too sweet for me – luckily, we shared all the desserts! They also came with complementary ice cream, though!
However, the pumpkin and vanilla cheesecakes were my favourite!
Overall, if you’re looking for a place to chill on a Friday night with comfy atmosphere and good food, this is the place for you!
