Turtle Bay’s Vegetarian Menu

Recently I headed to Turtle Bay in Middlesbrough to try out their vegetarian menu. I am in no way saying that I am a vegetarian however I thought it would be nice to give it a try, not only to give myself a fresh idea of meat free meals but also to help my readers find restraurants that offer a great variety of options. Turtle Bay definitely offers a large variety, not like most places where there are only one or two options for vegetarians or vegans. I took along my friend Zoe who has recently cut quite a lot of meat out of her diet, so I felt she was the perfect person to accompany me. We both had such a lovely time, the food was amazing but even that was topped by the exceptional customer service. They couldn’t have done anymore for us! 

What I thought was great was that their vegetarian and vegan menu had a range of starters, main courses, desserts and a drinks menu all suitable for those following. Like I said previously I’m very used to seeing such a small selections of vegetarian or vegan dishes on menus.
I was a little sceptical at first because I didnt have a clue what to try, I’m normally just a meat and veg kind of person so trying something different was good for me but quite scary aswell. We decided we would start with the Vital Veggie Platter, this way we got the option to try a little bit of all the starters on the menu. The platter included sweetcorn fritters, crispy okra, jerk pit grilled mushrooms and peppers, halloumi and mango flatbread, sweet plantain and a super green salad. Honestly it was amazing! There wasn’t one item on the platter that I didn’t enjoy. It was so nice to see how differently vegetable can be cooked and made so tasty! I think I liked the crispy okra and sweetcorn fritters the best, but it was a close call.

For mains I went for the Spinach, Aubergine & Sweet Potato Curry served with steamed rice and flatbread, actually we both did. I would normally order a sweet mild curry from a takeaway as I’m not a massive fan of spice, I prefer something with good flavour. This curry had a chilli kick, along with lots of different flavours. It’s something I would love to try and make at home, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I always thought a meal wasn’t complete without meat however this has changed my opinion completely. Sweet potato and spinach work really well together.

We were a little naughty and decided to have pudding too, oooops! I ordered the chocolate brownie with ice cream, again this was on the vegetarian menu aswell. OMG!! It was beautiful, rich but not too heavy. And it just finished the meal off perfectly! I will definitely be ordering it again next time we head to Turtle Bay!

All round we had such a perfect evening. Turtle Bay is somewhere you can go as a couple, a family meal or even just a catch up with friends, I love the reggae reggae them that’s runs through the whole restaurant, decor and bar. It’s nice to go somewhere abit different for a change, you’ll have to give it a try!
