After the success of their frozen yoghurts and breakfast menu at Yogism, they decided it was time to go savoury!
They developed a new menu for Tang, their new savoury sibling. With their vision to incorporate yoghurt into almost everything they do, it was a natural adventure into middle eastern food. There’s lots of tzatziki and twists on tzatziki, flavoured yoghurts, citrus, honey, black olive. They have done a great job incorporating yoghurt into all the dishes without making it in any way restrictive.

Could you tell me how serving soya in everything can be healthy for anyone?!?! I’m talking about #1
thank you for taking the time to comment on my post,
even though I’m not quite sure where the conception that everything on their menu is made of soy is coming from.
I certainly agree with you that you should be very careful about your choice of soy product as 90% of the soybeans produced in
the United States of America are genetically modified and should in my personal opinion be avoided.
On the other hand, there is a range of no-gmo fermented soy products
like natto, miso or tempeh that are quite beneficial for a healthy person if consumed in moderation.
Sova Vegan Butcher’s menu goes far beyond the use of soy products alone and many of their dishes are full of nutritional value.
Here is a link to their menu if you would like to have a look yourself.
All the places I chose offer a wider variety of healthy foods than the regular pub or chipper around the corner would.
On every single menu of the above-mentioned places, you will find healthy and let’s say a few less healthy options, it’s down to the individual
to make the right choice for themselves, but at least they will have a considerably big variety of healthy dishes to pick from.
Thank you 🙂
