BALDUCCI CAPE TOWN VEGAN MENU

img_2472The Vegan Menu hype surrounding Balducci was too much to ignore, so myself and Michael along with two friends of ours jumped at the opportunity to have a full menu experience!

First of all, if you are in Cape Town looking for an incredible atmospheric restaurant which caters to both Vegans and non-vegans with absolutely no room for either party to feel left out, this is the place to be.

Balducci is located at the V&A Waterfront which is the perfect romantic or family friendly location. The decor is truly stunning, yet still feels laid back enough to laugh out loud and really dig into the food.

Now, imagine not only receiving a full page of vegan items to choose from, but rather an entire book? We took ages to decide what to eat because everything sounded so delicious and our options were endless. With over 60 vegan menu options, you will have no shortage to choose from!

My top picks from the BALDUCCI VEGAN MENU:

#1: Cashew Nut Cream Pasta

This was a definite crowd pleaser which all four of us friends voted as our favourite of the evening. Super creamy, rich and so full of flavour. A definite winner for both children and adults.

#2: The Trader Joe & the Namaste Pizzas

I definitely recommend ordering both and sharing. Trust me, you do not want to miss out on either.

#3: Sushi

We ordered a Vegetable Sushi Platter which was super yummy. The sushi variety offered many different things to choose from. Definitely a one-stop sushi spot!

#4: Nachos

These were so good. Enough said.

#5: Falafels

No Vegan Menu is complete without a killer Falafel! The falafels are served with an incredible Tahini sauce. They are definitely the perfect table sharing option for starters!

#6: Thai Red Curry (spicy!)

I love spice, a lot. The Red Curry was packed full of flavour, but do not order this if you are not a fan of spice. On the other hand, if you’re like me and love a bite, go for it! Delicious!

#7: Drinks Menu

If you are a lover of wine, all you need to know is that the vegan wine list is a page long! I had a glass of the Chenin Blanc which was really lovely. Another killer drink is the Vegan Hot Chocolate, which is the perfect dessert option if there is no room left for a full dessert.

The Balducci Vegan Menu can easily be found online if you’d like to have a look before-hand!  Overall I highly recommend Balducci for both Vegan and non-vegans. Decor, atmosphere, food, and drinks. Perfection.
