I swear the main thing that got me to this point in the week was knowing that I would finally get to try food from The Vegan Grindhouse today as they were having a stall at the monthly market at the university where I work.

I’d had a bit of a look at what kind of things they offered online yesterday but I didn’t know until I got there what I would be in the mood for. In the end I settled for a Reservoir Dog (9″ tofu hotdog topped with mac & ‘cheez’, crispy onions and ‘bacon’ bits) and a cherry milkshake.


The hotdog was AMAZING! I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a meat based hotdog before but I love vegan ones and this was one of the best I have had. The mac and cheez was nice, although maybe not as cheesy as I would have hoped. The milkshake was a bad choice on such a cold day as I ended up with one very icy hand from clutching the cup. They weren’t super thick shakes but it was a pretty good mix of coconut milk, ice cream and syrup. The hotdog was £6 which seemed pretty good value considering the size and how filling it was. The shake was £3.50 which was maybe a tiny bit on the pricy side but I would probably still have another one (specially if it was a warmer day today)

Overall verdict – not something I could afford to have all the time (and it’s lucky for me wallet that they aren’t on campus all the time) I would definitely go back to try out more of their menu though and I think it’s great that they are going to so many places in the West Midlands. Check out their facebook or twitter to see where they are going to be next.
