Flipside is a 100% plant based restaurant that offers a wide selection of food from healthy salads to meat like burgers. Flipside freshly prepares the sandwiches and salad bowls every morning meaning customers can just grab & go.
Flipside is located just a 5-10 minute walk from Farringdon station, so it’s really convenient if you live or work in the city. They are also a cashless restaurant making them super speedy, you can use the self service iPads or you can go to the counter to place your order.
We arrived at Flipside at around 6pm on a Friday evening. We always try and arrive quite early in the hope that the restaurant will be empty. We were in luck which meant we could take our photos without anyone else in the background. We are glad we did arrive early because by the time we were finished Flipside was starting to fill up.
There is a lot to choose from on the menu we were so stuck on what to order. We have never tried meat like burgers before so we knew straight away that we had to order a couple of those! We went for the Flipside Quarter Pounder and Beyond Burger, the burgers were served with chips which were cooked to perfection, we loved them!
We absolutely loved the burgers they were so delicious and if we didn’t know they were plant based we probably wouldn’t have been able to guess.
We also ordered a couple of the Super Bowls to try, we ordered the Naked Cali which consisted of lots of rice, beans, salsa and tortilla chips it was really delicious and definitely one of their healthier options. We also ordered the Red & Greens which was so delicious we especially liked the chargrilled broccoli and skillet Brussels they were so tasty.
We definitely had a feast this evening, everything looked so good we couldn’t not try. We also ordered the nachos which were amazing and so tasty. The vegan cheese on top was really tasty and again we wouldn’t have known these were plant based, they were also very generous with the portion size. We would 100% recommend ordering the nachos when you visit as you won’t be disappointed.
For sides we were really intrigued by the sticky & crisply rashers so we knew we had to order those. I absolutely loved them, they didn’t taste like bacon at all like we thought maybe they would but they were really delicious! They had a different texture to bacon as well as they were quite chewy- definitely worth a try though.
We really loved that all of the drinks in the fridge were totally plastic free and 100% plant based. We both opted for a small bottle of Prosecco each (it was Friday after all).
We really enjoyed how convenient Flipside is, if you want a glass of water you can just help yourself, which is great if like us you drink a lot of water at dinner.
There was a small selection of cakes and cookies at the till points. We had our eye on the sticky toffee pudding that we had spotted on the menu but sadly that didn’t have any, not that we needed anymore to eat anyway!
The staff were so friendly at Flipside and welcomed us with open arms. If you are looking to enjoy a plant based feast then Flipside is the restaurant for you, we will definitely be returning soon.
