World Vegan Month with tastecard

I have always been a vegetarian all my life, but in the last few years, my diet has been shifting more towards a vegan diet. I have found that veganism is more readily accepted worldwide and catered for in most places. Most restaurants have at least 1-2 vegan dishes if not more on the menu and some restaurants have separate vegan menus that they serve.

November is world vegan month and I have joined forces with tastecard to enjoy a vegan meal at a local restaurant. tastecard partners with many restaurants to offer discounts on meals as well as days out and coffee clubs, along with many more benefits. tastecard membership can start from as little as £5.99 a month or annual membership from £39.99 offering excellent value for money.

There are many restaurants in Watford to choose from. We decided to visit Namaste Watford an Indian restaurant that came highly recommended by a friend who had been there. Namaste Watford serves a good variety of Indian Cuisine. Looking through the menu, there were ample dishes to choose from. We were extremely impressed with the staff's knowledge of the ingredients used in the dishes and their suitability for vegans and anyone with allergies.

The restaurant is spacious, bright and well-decorated. There is plenty of seating to accommodate large groups and families alike. There is also a well-stocked bar with plenty of soft and alcoholic drink choices.

While waiting for our appetisers to be prepared, we enjoyed some soft drinks, poppadum, and delicious chutneys.

Our appetisers included Chilli Garlic Mogo (cassava in spices) and Crispy Bhajiyas (deep-fried potatoes dipped in chickpea coating and spices). 

Both dishes were delicious, and we really enjoyed them. The portion sizes were generous and since we did not finish the entire starters. The waiter kindly offered to pack them to take home as a kind gesture.


For the main course, we opted for some Tarka dhal, Methi Corn (a curry made with sweetcorn and fenugreek) and steamed rice. 

The food was piping hot, freshly prepared, and had just the right balance of spices making it tasty and appetising. Once again, the portions were generous and there was plenty of food left over that we took home with us.

There were no vegan desserts on the menu, but tea and coffee were available. Following an excellent meal, we were too full to sample dessert, so we were not concerned.

Namaste Watford was a suitable choice of restaurant to visit during World Vegan Month especially as they accept the tastecard, making the dining experience more affordable.
