We have been reviewing London's restaurants for their vegetarian and vegan options for about a year now. The London food scene is ever evolving and every day we seem to be discovering a new place to eat or a new dish on a menu; we are more encouraged every day that plant-based food is becoming more mainstream. In honour of Veganuary we've compiled a list of our top 5 vegan restaurants. These places made it on our list for the quality of their food, creativity of the dishes and for their commitment to sustainability too. We hope that you will enjoy them too.
A vegan restaurant/food studio in Dalston from the incredibly talented chef, Kirk Haworth. With more than 15 years cooking in modern Michelin kitchens the menu provides a Michelin quality vegan dining experience. Plates tops our list for its set five-course menu of seasonal, organic food focusing on vegetables, fruits and wild herbs. It’s a saturday only restaurant in a very East London setting.
If you’re looking for somewhere impressive to take your meat-free significant other, this is Cub. It’s mind-blowingly creative and explores a new form of sustainability. The food is as intellectually interesting, as it is delicious.
The Neal’s Yard establishment is great for brunch, lunch and easy, casual meals. Expect abundance, colour and lots of raw cheesecake-style desserts. Wildfood Cafe's second site has recently been opened in Islington and we are sure it will be just as good.
With four sites in London and a cookbook, Mildreds has been going strong on the veggie London scene since the 1980s. Dishes are inspired by international cuisines and their burgers with sweet potato fries are well-loved.
Already enjoying a cult following, Farmacy has undoubtedly become a favourite of the clean-eating crowd. Dishes here are creative, organic, chemical-free interpretations of everyday classics. Farmacy takes its drinks as seriously as its food, sourcing bio-dynamic sulphate-free wines and crafting cocktails with medicinal benefits.
