El Piano in York ROCKS.
We went to York to pick up something the boy had bought on eBay, it was only a quick trip but I had read about El Piano being vegan & gluten-free and we HAD to visit while we were nearby. So I basically manipulated it into a trip there instead, and everyone loved it so no one was complaining. Winner.
I had a burger (minus the chickpeas which I can’t eat anymore, thanks stupid body) even though it wasn’t even lunch time yet. They make everything from scratch so they can edit the recipe. I would go as far as to say it was the best GF Vegan burger that has ever passed my lips, heaven with side plates. Yes I got roasted veg & some salads too and felt obese, awesomely obese.
The boy got a curry of some description (too busy drooling over burger to remember) which he asked for hot, but not melt your face off hot, which the waiter actually wrote down. Upon delivery it was spot on, he enjoyed it immensely.
He also had a coffee which they make using their own special method and he was blown away, so coffee lovers, thumbs up there.
My mum got a sweet potato soup, which came with bread AND polenta! I was possibly more exited about this than her, no where sells polenta around here which is a travesty! When you get soup most places it’s a measly portion with an dull white bread roll. Here you get two fantastic GF accompaniments. She loved the soup too.
We all decided we needed to find an excuse to come back soon and began bandying around ideas of events that may possibly warrant a fantastic meal.
We will be back soon El Piano, and next time there’ll be wine. Om Nom!
