admiral cheng-ho – 2
I made another stop at Admiral Cheng-Ho for lunch on my way to my regular volunteering gig at Fareshare.
This time I decided NOT to have the fritters, even though I love them. I ordered the African Beans instead. They came with good sourdough toast, avocado and an almond feta. The beans themselves were OK, but really I’d have to class this as my first food disappointment at Admiral Cheng-Ho. I didn’t really like the spicing and there were some lurking bits of not very well cooked eggplant. To be fair, I have a complete terror of undercooked eggplant.
But I could forgive those small failings because the beans were utterly lifted by the beautifully smooth and tart almond feta that came with them. I’m happy to see that the feta appears in a few other items on the menu too.
The exciting news about Admiral Cheng-Ho is that they’ve changed their menu so that it is no longer vegetarian with a vegan option. It is now vegan with a vegetarian option. So, for example, my beans came with the almond feta as the default with dairy feta available as an option! Nice to be the norm for a change. 🙂
