Fancy some dairy-free masala chaas or a pizza topped with cashew milk cheese? Drop in at The Phi­los­o­phy Club, Ahmed­abad’s very first all-ve­gan café that serves an ex­ten­sive range of cof­fees, shakes, piz­zas, sand­wiches and pas­tas that come with­out dairy or eggs. Meat or fish, of course, is a strict no here. The café of­fers the feel of a cozy home with wooden ta­bles, un­co­or­di­nated crock­ery and the own­ers’ fam­ily pic­ture por­traits on the walls. They make fresh cof­fee with soya milk, the cream cheese on the sal­ads and the mozzarella on the pizza are made in-house from cashew milk, mak­ing these dishes ac­ces­si­ble to peo­ple who want cru­elty-free or just lac­tose-free food op­tions. The ve­gan ver­sion of spaghetti Bolog­nese is made with soya mince and ve­gan Parme­san, while the cream that goes into pas­tas is made with cashews in­stead of dairy. While you’re there, ask them for tips on how to take the ve­gan cui­sine to your kitchen. Co-owner and chef, Gemma Ferre Martinez gen­er­ously shares recipes and tells you sto­ries of her fam­ily home in Spain from where she learnt the art of cook­ing and hos­pi­tal­ity.
