Food Review: Not Veggie? You Might Be Once You've Eaten In Here Tibits, Southwark Street 4

If you're teetering on the edge of vegetarianism but find can't quite commit to a life of soggy quiche, bland goats cheese tarts and yet another mushroom risotto, then an epic sitting at Tibits buffet should be enough to excite the inner veggie in you. After working up an appetite at Tate Modern (a mere five-minute walk away) we pile our plates high with meat-free sausage rolls (buttery and flaky without the gristle of traditional sausage rolls), perfectly spiced Indian dal and red lentil and beetroot curry, deliciously moist soy chocolate cake and all manner of enticing salads (not an oxymoron on this occasion).

With its lush, living walls and smart conservatory-dining out back, this latest addition to the Tibits empire is certainly fancy but the food isn't, and that’s no bad thing. This is simple, flavoursome cooking done so well you'll want to replicate the dishes at home and return for recipe inspiration. Tibits is basically the gateway drug to you becoming a fully-fledged vegetarian (or vegan if you show up on vegan Tuesdays), you’ve been warned.
