This Galway Café is Serving up a Tasty Vegan Alternative to the Irish Fry
The Lighthouse Café, which serves only vegan and vegetarian food, is excited to bring their plant-based weekday menu to customers.
As well as much loved dishes such as overnight oats, granola and freshly baked bread and pastries, they will also be launching a tasty alternative to the traditional Irish fry.
The new addition to Abbeygate Street in Galway is proving to be a popular addition to the city’s vibrant dining scene.
Keri Leigh, co-owner of The Lighthouse Café, commented: “After launching the Sunday Vegan-only brunch earlier this year, we saw that people really enjoy the variety and the flavours that are in our dishes.”
“The brunch has become so busy that we thought why not do this too on the weekdays, but we will be keeping our Vegan Pancakes and Waffles for just Sunday Brunch, as we don’t want to spoil people too much!”
The new vegan fry features scrambled tofu served with Rye Toast, organic tomatoes and vegan white pudding. The white pudding alternative is a delicious combination of rosemary, garlic, rice, smoked tofu and white beans.
Commenting on the dish, Legi Mountbatten, Head Chef and co-owner of The Lighthouse Café, said: “We decided to do our own take on the traditional fry. The vegan white pudding texture and flavours are really filling and full of flavour without any saturated fats. So it’s a win win really.”
The revamped menu features lots of vegan and veggie treats such as polenta cakes, vegan chocolate brownies, carrot cake and scones – the perfect sweet treat after you enjoy your fry. The Lighthouse Café’s overnight oats served with seasonal berry compote, date syrup and crushed nuts are another must-try on the menu.
The Lighthouse Breakfast will be served Monday to Friday from 10 am from until 12 noon. The café also hosts a vegan brunch every Sunday from 12pm-4pm, as well as a monthly vegan dinner pop up evening.
