Food blogger Deliciously Ella prepares to open her first vegan restaurant in Central London serving up deliciously diverse plant-based foods


The food blogger behind plant-based brand Deliciously Ella is preparing to open her first vegan restaurant in Central London next week, serving up deliciously diverse plant-based foods.

Ella Mills’ latest venture, Plants by de, will focus on celebrating the delicious diversity and abundance of plants. Plants by de will serve its guests natural, plant-based foods with plates filled with colourful and fresh meals that everyone can enjoy.

The plant-based restaurant will take over Mills’ deli Deliciously Ella on Londons Weighhouse Street.

After the deli was forced to close due to the pandemic, Ella and her partner Matt, who is also the CEO of the Deliciously Ella brand, reimagined the space and decided to take a chance and open their first vegan restaurant.

Mills took to Instagram to announce the opening of Plants by de, explaining that opening a plant-based restaurant was always the couple’s dream but wasn’t something that was financially feasible.

“Our deli on Weighhouse Street has been a home for us, but we’ve always felt it could be so much better if we could do more of a restaurant experience. We’ve been closed for most of the last fifteen months and have spent a lot of that time reflecting on how we could make that initial dream a reality.”

The entrepreneur went on the share how the deli has been transformed into a restaurant featuring a large kitchen, a brand new menu, table service, outdoor seating, and plant-based cocktails.

Mills confessed to her Instagram followers: “Pouring so many resources into this in the midst of a pandemic has been daunting in many ways, but as we get closer to opening, the excitement is really building.”


What’s on the menu at Plants by de

Plants by de offers a vast selection of plant-based treats on its menu, with everything made in-house.

Start the day with a nutritious plant-based breakfast of scrambled tofu rancheros with homemade corn tortilla, tomato, and red onion salsa, sauteed black beans, coriander, and avocado

Or perhaps go for something sweet with blueberry pancakes served with an irresistible dark chocolate sauce, how could we not?

With a range of smaller plates to choose from, why not start with king oyster mushroom scallops served with a parsnip puree, carrot jelly, parsnip bacon?

Follow it up with a trio of sliders filled with bean & kimchi, jackfruit & spicy avocado, crispy tofu & sriracha if you’re still feeling peckish.

Additionally, guests can enjoy a range of scrumptious sides, irresistible desserts, and delicious drinks.


Plants by de opening time and location

Plants by de will be welcoming guests into its new site next week on June 16th, at 18-20 Weighhouse Street, London.
