Natural Bar & Kitchen is one of the finest members of Birmingham’s vegan scene, serving up morsels of healthy plant-based food made with natural and sustainable ingredients.
The main attraction at Natural Bar & Kitchen is its buffet section: a colourful collection of meticulously crafted plant-based dishes landscape two long cabinets in anticipation. With its mix of hot, cold, and raw options, the buffet is an invitation to sampling a selection of vegan eats and discover new flavours. We’re talking freshly prepared portions of coconut stir-fried rice, cauliflower cheeze, and sauteed greens with mango. The choice is entirely up to you - just grab a plate, fill it with whatever takes your fancy, and pay depending on its final weight.
You can also order from the a la carte menu too - an array of individual items including the natural burger (a black bean patty with layers of salad and cashew cheese), a hearty ramen bowl (with rice noodles, pak choi, beansprouts and wild mushrooms), and a warming lentil dahl. But if you’re going for the a la carte option, then the tofu ‘fish’ and chips is a must try: constructed with a lemon and kelp marinated tofu, this is the closest you’ll get to fish and chips without diving into the “real” thing. Finished with a generous handful of Himalayan salt fries, it’s a real treat.
There’s a lively canteen feel to the space itself, with people tucking into mountainous plates of vibrant foods. It seems to reflect the all-natural ethos that inspires Natural Bar & Kitchens foods, with its naked breezeblock walls, scaffold-style furniture and webs of suspended bulbs; it’s largely undecorated and minimalist, refusing to meddle with the buildings unique character.
Natural Bar & Kitchen’s vegan food is so good, it’s even grabbing the curiosity of hardened meat-eaters. Join the plant-based revolution and tuck in.
