Met Bar & Kitchen Solihull supports Veggie Month this March

21st February 2016

Solihull’s Met Bar & Kitchen is marking Veggie Month by launching a range of daily changing vegetarian specials which will run throughout March.

Created by Head Chef Zeke Agrios with ideas and input from Midlands-based vegetarian food blogger Andy Hare, the meat free dishes have been developed to tempt both vegetarians and meat eaters, with fresh, seasonal and colourful ingredients expertly combined to make flavoursome and satisfying meals.

Veggie Month specials include Coconut and Sweetcorn Fritters with spicy avocado, cherry tomato and coriander salsa; Chargrilled aubergine, sundried tomato and mozzarella wrap with marinara sauce and pinenut crunch and Ricotta and Spinach filo parcel served with puttanesca sauce.

Met Bar & Kitchen owner Alastair Tyson said: “We were concious that vegetarian dishes are very often put together by meat eating chefs so we invited Andy to come up with some options which he’d like to see on menus when dining out.

“Andy’s suggestions are a refreshing change and, with some chef development, they sit well alongside our new seasonal menu which will also launch in March.”

Andy Hare said: “A vegetarian meal when dining out can often mean a pasta or mushroom based dish.

“We have some great vegetarian menus in Midland restaurants and I’m delighted to add Met Bar & Kitchen to that list. My wife is a meat-eater and I know these are dishes she would order and enjoy too.”

New a la carte plates at Met Bar & Kitchen include Caribbean Jerk Spiced Cod with coconut rice, mango and cucumber and Butternut Squash, New Potato and Spinach Goan Curry with coriander naan bread. These sit alongside popular favourites such as British Coast Cod and Chips, Chargrilled Steaks and the MBK Burger.
