Mod, plant-based cuisine that tastes as good as it looks with a brand new buzzy location at BaseHall, Jardine House. Tuck into wholesome, vegan delights including burgers, buddha bowls and wraps in homemade sourdough to cold-pressed juices and yummy sides like sweet potato fries. Tip: Don’t ‘leaf’ without trying the guilt-free desserts, including the densely rich hazelnut chocolate cake.
