A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR THE VEGANS
Moving is stressful. There are so many things to consider; even more so when you have a particular diet. This article is for those who like vegan fare and may need a few short cuts while they get settled in their new environment.
Today’s focus is on Ras Val’s Campus Ital. I met the proprietors of Ras Val’s, Kareem and Aisha while visiting BMEX 2014. The two pleasant and intelligent young people explained that they sold vegetarian food at the University of the West Indies and in their Dash Valley, St. George location (Ras Val’s Cookshop). They offer readymade fare for those seeking an instant hot meal, but new to their repertoire are frozen split pea patty and lentil patty batters which allow customers to have the Ras Val flavours at home.
Val is the pair’s mother and it is through her vision that Ras Val’s was started 15 years ago. Their varied menu includes:
rice and peas,
vegetable fried rice,
sweet potato pie,
stewed ground provisions,
several vegetable stews and sauces.
Their Cave Hill location reopens on the 2nd September, Mondays to Friday from 11:00 am until 8:00 pm. Their Dash Valley, St George location is open Moday – Friday from 11:30 am until 2:30 pm.
