THE PHILOSOPHY CLUB
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.
