Jamie’s Italian

Jamie’s Italian

A chain that offers a variety of vegan food, say whaaat!? Dining out as a vegan is sometimes difficult and you may end up eating something really boring so that you can be catered for; and that’s no fun, especially when you’re paying probably quite a lot for it too. This weekend I went to Jamie’s Italian, I always check menus before hand, and saw that he had more than one vegan option. I was pretty happy. It’s also great…
