The Field | Restaurant Review

East London is hotting up to be the centre of the vegan food scene in our capital city. You’ll find vegan market upon vegan market – think Hackney Downs and Broadway – and now we’re seeing a number of vegan cafes and restaurants open their doors too.

The Field, which you can find under the railway arches in London Fields, is one restaurant to emerge and it’s well worth a visit. Having only opened a few months ago chefs and owners Nik Williamson & Ryan Petty share innovative plant-based cooking and have well and truly nailed their menu.


What we ate at The Field

We visited on a Sunday so we selected from their brunch menu and had two courses. Yes two, because one isn’t enough for brunch!


First Course 

We couldn’t resist the house granola. The rhubarb compote sounded delectable and it truly was. At times i find rhubarb quite tart but this the complete opposite. It was smooth, sweet and reminded me of the rhubarb crumble that my mum used to cook when i was younger. It paired nicely with the coconut yogurt and granola. Don’t be put off as granola is something you can easily do at home. This is a posh version and really tasty.

Taco Scramble was the other dish that caught our eye. I’ve tried to make scrambled tofu many a time and failed so it’s something that i tend to choose when out. This dish had a bit of a chilli kick to it but it was cooled off by the fresh tomato and lime. The tofu itself was seasoned well and i thoroughly enjoyed it. Ryan told us that this is a favourite for many of their customers.

Second Course 

When i saw French Toast on the menu i knew that i had to get it. I sat there in anticipation and oh my did it not disappoint. The berry compote that accompanied it added a sharpness which you needed with the sweetness of the bread. It was scrummy, however i think that i am more of a pancake person at heart.

Many people get bored of seeing falafels on the menu but not me. I absolutely adore them as every restaurant has their own recipe that tastes slightly different. These falafels had a zesty-ness to them which was refreshing. Definitely worth trying if you’re a falafel lover like me.

Over the last couple of years i’ve noticed that the bar is certainly being raised when it comes to vegan food. No longer do you have to deal with a plate full of lettuce leaves. Instead restaurants like Lele’s, Cafe Forty One and The Field are showing brilliant creativity with plant based food and demonstrating how tasty it can be.

If you’re looking for a vegan brunch, then check out The Field. However keep in mind that their evening menu looks rather good too.

      It has become so accessible. I don’t even really have to think about it in the centre anymore. It is mainly country pubs where i struggle, but London is brilliant.

      It certainly was! I also loved the tacos. I never succeed in making tofu scramble at home, so it is nice to have someone make it for you.

    Oh wow, that French toast looks phenomenal! Beautiful pictures too, as always!

      Definitely a restaurant worth visiting if you’re in the area. Beautiful food and there’s so much to explore around that area too.

    Such a fancy brunch! Everything was so beautifully presented, I wouldn’t want to eat it! I’ve never had french toast, but that one looks increeedible.

      The French Toast was so tasty. I’ve been looking at The Field’s day menu during the week and that looks truly sensational.
