Flavour isn’t compromised when it comes to Vardo’s options and you can expect oodles of nourishment when you order a grain bowl, multiple of which are vegan – our favourite comes with broken falafel, harissa, tahini, flatbread and spoons of hummus. And yes, you can also order pizza and pecan pie! The maple pecan pie comes with coconut yogurt and stewed kumquats and will absolutely have you choosing plant-based much more often.
