[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”11160″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I never thought I’d be reviewing a chipper for Only Natural but our food culture is changing and that’s exactly what I’m doing today. I recently had a chat with Geraldine, the owner of Mangan’s in The Faythe because I’m fascinated by just how much she’s taken the idea of traditional chip shop fare (not the healthiest of cuisines) and substantially changed it to reflect today’s changing tastes and dietary choices. Geraldine was certainly ahead of the curve when she decided to overhaul her menu in favour of healthier options in June 2016. She was certainly the first in Wexford to realize that she could attract a broader audience by offering healthier and vegetarian choices beside traditional chip shop fare. What’s exciting is just how successful her initiative has been with the result that she’s still adding to the choices on offer. She’s effectively broadened her restaurant’s appeal to include those of us who want the convenience and tastiness of a take away now and again but without the heart clogging downside. We applaud you Geraldine.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

What’s on the menu at Mangan’s?

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Mangan’s Superfood Salad contains quinoa, kale, chickpeas, sumac, pistachios, pomegranate seeds and nectarines in a garlic and olive oil dressing.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Vegetarian tempura offers sweet potato, kale and courgette in a traditional tempura batter with a Thai dipping sauce.

Vegetarian taco fries comprise quorn, Wexford cheddar, taco sauce and spices over fries.

And new to the menu two very exciting additions, two proper, made in house, vegetarian burgers, one made with chickpeas and Moroccan spices and the other crafted from beetroot and feta, both served on brioche. These I can’t wait to try!!![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”11159″ img_size=”full” style=”vc_box_outline” border_color=”green”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”11191″ img_size=”full” style=”vc_box_outline” border_color=”green”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Geraldine is proud to support local suppliers (including Only Natural) and is working on making all her packaging compostable and biodegradable.

So next time you have the takeaway urge you don’t have to wrestle with your conscience, thanks to Geraldine’s great innovations you can now enjoy the convenience and taste without the guilt![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
