Lovely vegan Icecream and waffles at Yorica! London

shop review#38 – Yorica is a vegan icecream shop in London. There are two locations, one in Notting Hill, and one in Soho. Upon our arrival in London this Summer for a short city trip, the one in Soho was our first stop, as it was just around the corner from where we stayed! All the products sold at Yorica are not only vegan, but also free from nuts and gluten. You can buy icecream, waffles and pancakes to take away, or to eat at Yorica’s itself, although there is not that much space inside (some bar stools inside and a bench in front of the shop).

It is a bit of aย peculiar ride though, as sections ofย this road areย also well know for its ‘red lights’, which can also be spotted from the restaurant itself. We went to Markies de Salade a couple of weeks ago, toย celebrate our 26th anniversary.ย We were there onย a weekday evening, but to be sure we made a reservation. When we arrived there, there was only one other couple dining there, but other patronsย soon followed. …
