New Vegetarian Menu for Cafe Sol Kilkenny?
THIS SUNDAY night sees Cafe Sol in Kilkenny run a vegetarian tasting menu which could be an indicator to greater changes on their main menu and greater vegetarian options on a whole. On a night out there in January of this year I had been advised that changes were coming that could put as many as six vegetarian main courses on the menu, which would be a great help when dining out on home soil (considering Herself is vegetarian, amongst other things).
So, the restaurant have announced a tasting menu for their new vegetarian options, in association with Vegetarian Kilkenny, a local group who meet on the first Sunday of every month to catch up and share their own vegetarian dishes and delights. The tasting menu this Sunday September 25th at 7pm and will cost €30 per person.
