Food: Brunch at 90 Degree Melt, Mile End

Things I miss living in Dubai: decent vegetarian food, paying less than £10 for any meal, East London....

90 Degree Melt is a new offering on Mile End Road serving American-inspired, vegetarian (and vegan) dishes. It's proper comfort food that just happens to be vegetarian - all served without any hint of "wellness" in a minimalist American-style diner just a few steps from Stepney Green station.

Eliza and I showed up at around 1.30pm for a late brunch and grabbed a spot at the end of one of the shared tables. Service was a little slow but I guess they are still figuring things out. There's no danger of us ever running out of things to chat about. We ordered three dishes to share - a vegan tofu scramble on toast, a vegan chilli skillet and jalapeno cornbread with fried eggs. I usually hate sharing food but I loved having the pick of the whole menu and being able to try a few different dishes.

The tofu scramble was the stand-out for me, so full of flavour and topped with a delicious pesto sauce with a side of guacamole for my daily avocado fix. Portions are generous and the bill came out at around £15 each (including two very tiny bottles of sparkling water) which is amazing value for London.

I would be back very soon if it wasn't for the 7 hours flying time...  


  1. Mmm looks lush! Love brunch :) Tofu scramble sounds good.

  2. Ooh thats is all looks so good! Were there many gf options? Trying to avoid gluten and eat brunch is a minefield!
