DSCN6185-1Restaurant critic and fashion writer Russell Rose reviewed more than 280 restaurants and cafés in his book Veggie & Organic London. Mildreds Soho has been one of the most popular and successful vegetarian restaurants in London so when Fashion Fabulous learnt that a sister restaurant Mildreds Camden had just opened as soon as you could say Pan Fried Haloumi we were down there like a shot! A full review will be appearing in the next edition of Fashion Fabulous London available in all good bookshops and on Amazon and many independent bookshop websites.

Camden has a great new vegetarian restaurant! Mildreds was packed by 7.30pm whilst Wagamama next door was virtually empty. We liked the whole atmosphere, the attentive service, modern seating and décor and the music playlist was at a comfortable volume to hold a conversation without shouting.

The menu will have a familiar feel to regular customers at the Soho resto. Gyoza dumplings, vegeburgers, burritos and stir frys to name but a few. Looking through past menus, ingredients and accompaniments do change so there’s always something new on offer. Panfried Halloumi starter, for example, was one of the best halloumi we have tasted and arrived attractively presented with roast peppers, leeks with smoked chilli jam. Rose Harissa Hoummus with smokey babaganoush and chargrilled flat bread was delicious too.

For mains there’s an attractive choice of three vegeburgers, substantial and well stacked, four salads and five “large” plate choices. Being adventurous we opted for the Mock Duck Cassolet (see image above) new to Mildreds and exclusive to the Camden restaurant. We found it a very enjoyable dish arriving with white beans, spinach and herb crust. Did it hit the mark for duck flavour for us? Well, no, but in its own right it was a new recipe with merit.

DSCN6184-1 Black Bean and Tomatillo Rice Burrito is a very well- constructed veggie dish with a vegan option available. The vegetarian version comes with a nice ranchero sauce and grilled cheese, smashed avocado, sour cream and pico de gallo. Our helpful waiter suggested a side of sweet potatoes with basil mayo that proved to be a good choice and we found the Domaine Bousquet Malbec an apt pairing and very reasonable value at £6.25 a glass from the all organic wine list.

DSCN6191-1The night we dined 90% of the diners were female it was positively buzzing. Many were knocking back the organic cocktails at £7 a pop. Fashion-wise it’s All Saints, Punky Fish and Topshop with many wearing jeans and guys wearing Topman, Ted Baker and H&M.

DSCN6188-1Of the seven desserts, Sticky Toffee Pudding is a large enough portion to feed the whole of the restaurant! Certainly enough for two people its great value for £6.50.

DSCN6190-1The Coconut Pana Cotta with salted caramel comes with a lovely caramel expresso sauce slides down well.

DSCN6187-2A three course meal without drinks is about £27.
