Eggelicious – or E3 as the incarnation in The Crossing in the Brunel Centre is called was an early post on this blog: https://swindonian.me/2013/05/31/a-cracking-good-place/

There are couple of others too but that one is the first one. Ive been thinking for a while that I needed to do something to refresh that particular situation. But you know how it is listeners – life and business etc gets in the way.

So what I’ll do instead is share this rather nice blog post from Josh Layton on his Much Ado about Warwickshire blog: 

Mother’s Day goes vegan at poetry-inspiring wrap stop

‘Morning prep is underway as I arrive at Swindon’s favourite toasted wrap joint, with ingredients red, green and yellow being gently sliced and heated behind the counter.

Pulling up a stool at the slender counter, I have a front-row view of the open kitchen where owner Ash has full pans of spinach and lamb on the hob. The Asian influence is much in evidence with coriander, dill and ginger among the herbs and spices I can discern.

Eggelicious has the mantra ‘slow food fast’, and it’s this careful prep work that gives the toasted bundles the wholesome pep that have put the name on the map … ‘

Eggelicious started life in the tented market in the town centre. It then expanded into Wood Street in Old Town. Now with the demise of the town centre market hall, E3 is open for business in the Brunel Centre food court.  Ash and his crew serve food for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans. Everyone is catered for.
