Despite having visited Cornwall a number of times, I had never been to Truro. Since the opening of The Cornish Vegan, we had a reason to visit this time. We had a bit of a mooch about Truro beforehand. Phil wanted to go to a vinyl shop and I wanted to have a wander around. We had a look in a few shops, there’s a great mix of high street and independent shops in Truro, and we picked up a few things for the house.
I had seen people talking about The Cornish Vegan on Twitter and it was recommended by a number of vegans online so I was desperate to go there. I wasn’t disappointed. There was loads of choice and it all looked delicious. The people on the table next to us had lasagne and a salad, which I was tempted by, but in the end I opted for the BBQ Jackfruit, as I’d never had jackfruit before.
The jackfruit was delicious. The BBQ sauce, which is made by the restaurant was really tasty and it made for an excellent burger. The coleslaw was light, fresh and crispy too. Service was excellent and Poppy was made welcome too, by getting her own bowl of water and as many vegan dog treats as she could eat, which turned out to be quite a few! I really wanted a brownie with some ice cream, but by this time, Poppy made it clear that she was ready to leave so I got a brownie to go. It was immense! It was the best vegan brownie I’ve had since becoming vegan. If you go to The Cornish Vegan, get one!
I can’t blame Poppy. She had been an absolute star while we shopped and mooched about. She was able to come into most shops with us, including Lush, where she got a lot of attention! It’s so great to be able to take her into shops and cafes, even if she does want to eat everything in there!
We’ll definitely be going back to The Cornish Vegan next time we’re in the area. I’d love to sample one of their Sunday roasts as they look epic!
