I’m no vegetarian, but today my brother Neko has planted the idea of visiting Veg Out, a small café/restaurant in Kings Heath that serves organic dishes – many are also vegan and/or gluten free.
With no beer available we still need some form of irrigation. Neko chooses the Cawston Press Sparkling Apple while I cultivate a desire for the Sparkling Rhubarb. Life without beer, at least for a limited season, can be good.
Neko digs his way through the Chef’s Special Salad made with feta cheese, beetroot, artichoke, dressed leaves and topped with spicy seeds. Meanwhile, I root for the Middle Eastern Falafel served inside a flat bread with humous, red onion & tomato salsa, pine nuts, mint and cucumber.
I know Neko is enjoying himself……..and, rather surprisingly, this place is growing on me.
