RootmasterThe Routemaster bus occupies a special place in the hearts of Londoners. And if the old adage - 'the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach' - is true then this is the best way of cementing that warm, fuzzy feeling. When the much-loved mode of transport was largely retired - replaced by the altogether less loved bendy bus - there was an outcry. This novel repositioning, then, of the Rootmaster as vegan 'bustaurant' should be applauded for its sheer inventiveness and for getting the iconic red double-decker back on the London map. Parked up outside the Truman Brewery, the bus is the brainchild of ex-dancer Sylvia Garcia and all the food, prepared on the lower deck, is vegan. Upstairs offers seating for 28 and - weather permitting - there's additional seating outside. The tasty looking menu offers choices of purple sprouting brocoli, aubergine stack salad or tofu tower washed down with an organic wine list and finished off with triple chocolate fudge cake or ice cream with wild berries. Nostalgic journeys never tasted so good.
