It’s said we eat with our eyes, so it’s no wonder the restaurant with over 200 chains across the world has got it so right; a choice of what goes in – and what stays out of your dish! Vapiano offers a wide range of freshly prepared Italian dishes cooked to order right in front of you – appealing for even the fussiest of eaters!
I met with Tanja, Vapiano UK’s marketing and events exec, for lunch in Soho to discuss securing future support for Diversity Matters / Let’s do Lunch Network events on awareness about equality issues, and essentially unit people through a common love of cultural diversity… and of course, food always helps!

We opted for a warming potato soup on the Vapiano specials menu. Admittedly, I’m a
fussy particular eater – I know what I like and tend to stick to it. ‘Potato‘ and ‘soup‘ may not be the most exciting words on a menu, however combined (and with the magic touch of Vaps chefs), this is a food marriage to make an exception for – it tasted heavenly! Made from a simple selection of ingredients; potatoes, cream, lemon juice, oregano, and garnished with spring onion. Opt out of the crispy bacon for a vegetarian-friendly light-lunch… I’m reassured it’s on the specials list for a good reason!
Try the potato soup as a starter to your favourite Vaps main, or simply served with a side of freshly sliced bread. CLICK HERE to view other specials on the menu.
Tip: Customise your dish with the fresh herbs and condiments available on your table. I’m all for lashings of basil, swirls of olive oil and sprinklings of pepper (or chilli flakes if I really want to heat things up!)
Best for: solo lunches, working lunch, groups, pasta/pizza cravings, strictly platonic-friends, value for money, healthy eating, home-cooked-style eating.
