What a beautiful day we had today in Hastings! Bright blue sky, sunshine, no cold wind and, for this time of year, mild temperature. Such a day can not be wasted inside so we set off. We took Milton for a walk in the Country Park and as a bonus, bumped in to two of our neighbours, Tom and Marie, so walked with them. It was glorious up there.I knew, thanks to a local Facebook site, that the Pavilion Restaurant on Hastings pier had a special vegan menu for Veganuary so we headed there for lunch.I always enjoy walking along the St.Leonards and Hastings’ promenades.The Pavilion Restaurant is near the entrance to the pier. I had never been in before but will definitely be going again.
Thank you for supporting veganuary.I am not sure why I have not been in here before.It was much nicer than I expected and a very pleasant place to sit and have a drink or food.We had both. Soya milk latte for me.
I knew I was going to have the ‘Fish’ and chips because that had been recommended. I actually want to try everything on here.I also had the cauliflower salad which I really liked but was not sure about the gloopy blobs of dressing. The dressing texture was a bit wallpaper pastey and the flavours indistinct; a vinaigrette would have been better. But all the salad ingredients were really good and I enjoyed it.The ‘fish’ and chips. WOW. WOW. WOW. Amazing. Wrapping the tofu in seaweed makes it taste as if it’s from the sea. The tartare sauce was good. And the chips. Oh my, some of the best I have ever had anywhere. Obviously not the best choice for a diet but a lovely treat and this was my only meal of the day as I fasted before and afterwards.I highly recommend the tofu ‘fish’. And the chips. Really excellent.
I did leave a piece of ‘fish’ and some chips because I was full. I could easily have eaten them but I didn’t need them.
After a really lovely lunch we walked along to the Old Town as we had a birthday present to buy for someone special. It’s always a pleasure, pottering about in the Old Town. These cute plants were for sale at Reste on George Street.Time to head home.
I fasted for most of today and have walked 13,666 steps and I am happy with that.
