In January at the same time as needing to ‘tighten our belts’, we may find our actual belts are quite tight after the Christmas feast.

For a reasonably priced, healthy lunch, dinner or to take tea, I really like Tibits, the Swiss-owned vegetarian restaurant on Heddon Street.

I enjoyed a delicious plate of fresh salads, bursting with colour and flavours; a welcome antidote to the holiday choc-fest.

Of the all the places to eat on Heddon St., Tibits is the most relaxed, with a take away as well as sit down service. The decor is clean and fresh, with blond wood and bold patterned wallpaper and textiles – a bit hippy-Ikea-ish. In warmer months, being in a car-free cul-de-sac, it is good to sit outside.

You serve yourself from a range of freshly prepared curries, stews, soups, salads and desserts. Price is by weight, so you tend to resist the usual buffet temptation to pile-it-high. The food is imaginative and varied – they work with Hiltl, Zürich Europe’s oldest vegetarian restaurant, founded in 1898.

Tibits also do a good cup of tea.

The tea menu includes hot ginger, Indian chai, gunpowder green, fresh mint, chamomile and English breakfast.

I had a Jasmine tea – a ball which slowly unfolded and looked like a green and pink sea urchin. It was really lovely – light and refreshing.

There are a range of sweets and pastries. I look forward to returning to sample the Chai Tea dessert – with Assam tea, ginger, coriander, cardamom and cinnamon.
I just need to tighten my belt a bit first.
