If you haven't heard of Iydea before they're a local, north laine located, vegetarian, canteen style restaurant where you pick the size of plate or take out box you want, your main meal & either two sides with the small size or unlimited sides with the large size - this option's amazing if you're hungry!
This small take out box has falafel with a giant cous cous salad & roasted vegetables.
I had hummus as my topping and it certainly helped cool down the slightly-too-spicy-for-me falafel. The roasted veggies at Iydea are always delicious and usually include potatoes & some kind of squash, I'm a big fan of their giant cous cous salad's too & I always choose that as my side if they have it.
I remember this small take out box fondly because I went for the triple carb lunch - awesome! There's lasagne which is a new dish at Iydea that's so good they now have it on the menu almost every day. I had this with sides of pasta salad & roast potatoes.
This was an amazing lunch! Their lasagne is so good - in fact if I wasn't meeting Nick for dinner in two hours I'd be going out to get some of this right now!
The only bad thing about Iydea (& most other vegi places in this city!) is that they all close at 6pm (or sometime 5.30!) which just seems SO early & it doesn't leave you with that many options if you want to grab dinner after work or in the evening.
