ASK Italian now has vegan menu
A huge trend for UK restaurants is the addition of a specialised vegan menu.
Chain restaurants all over the country are rushing to present vegan diners with separate meal choices on a designated menu.
The latest UK chain to join the vegan menu club is ASK Italian. With approximately 120 locations around the UK, there is no shortage of spots to chow down on pizza, pasta and bread.
Check out the vegan ASK Italian menu below.
That’s not too shabby for a non-vegan restaurant chain. I especially love the sound of the roast Charlotte potatoes!
The menu does seem to change slightly between outlets. You can see the menu online and choose your nearest restaurant using a drop down list. This will adapt the menu and prices for your area.

Extra info time:
ASK Italian was bought out by a private equity group called Bridgepoint. Interestingly, this private equity group also owns or has invested in Pret a Manger and Zizzi. It just so happens that all of these chains have been extremely active in responding to vegan market trends and demands. This is surely a top-down directive for food companies owned by Bridgepoint, right? It couldn’t be a coincidence that these major restaurant chains owned by one group are all now suddenly super vegan-friendly.
If this isn’t proof of the surge of veganism, I’m not sure what is.
There’s a smaller chain called The Stable that also provides a vegan menu. We tried the one at Kew Bridge in London (last week). Very good. http://stablepizza.com/menu/
Yes, their food looks fab. I wrote about their vegan pizza last year: http://fatgayvegan.com/2016/06/13/pizza-chain-launches-vegan-option/
I love the fact that it includes a kid’s menu too – the more included vegan kids feel the better for all of us!
