Well we couldn't exactly say go to Wildebeest to everyone in our last post without following our own advice! So when Phil came home from his morning surf, off we went. We don't really need an excuse but the fact that they were having the 'support Viva! day' today meant we couldn't really resist.
I had the Homemade Squash Ravioli with Sauteed Mushrooms, Kale and a Pickled Apple and Hazelnut Salad. Phil had the Thai Green Curry Broth with Rice Noodles, Broccoli, Char-grilled Courgettes and Pea Tendrils. We of course managed to fit in some desserts. After all we'd driven 25 miles to get there so you've got to make the most of it! I had the Wholemeal Mixed Berry and Coconut Cake with the addition of a scoop of Roasted Banana and Blueberry Ice Cream on the side. Phil went for the Raw Lime Coconut Cheesecake. Phwoah! Lovely!
Let's just say neither the photos above, nor the descriptions of the dishes do justice to the food at Wildebeest. Whatever your imagination dreams it up to be like, I can tell you it will be even better than that.
It was totally packed out today and we were very fortunate to even get seated. This is not only heartening from a vegan point of view; to see so many people enjoying purely vegan fare, but also a clear indication of the standard of food that they serve. They work so hard and we can honestly say we don't know how they keep up the pace six days a week. It is no wonder they are ranked #4 out of 165 Falmouth restaurants on TripAdvisor.
Whether you are vegan or not, it's a sin if you come to Cornwall without visiting Wildebeest!
