Being and eating out in the UK used to mean being limited to a ridiculously small amount of menu options and then gorging on as much of the bread basket as humanly possible, but these days over half a million people in the UK are vegan which has resulted in a vast array of new restaurants appearing and offering up some of the world’s finest vegan cuisine.
In this article, we’re going to take you through ten of the very best vegan restaurants in London that we’ve discovered from our travels where you can enjoy stunning and nutritious food without sacrificing taste or flavour. So join us as we take you on a tour of some of the finest plant-based cuisine London has to offer which goes far beyond just nut roasts and tofu!
Club Mexicana serves a stunning array of authentic Mexican street food at their Camden Market location. Their specialities include the seriously mouth-watering barbecue jackfruit burrito.
Wulf and Lamb
If you’re looking for something a bit fancier then head over to this posh Chelsea gastropub who serve up delicious dishes in a casual atmosphere. They also have a terrace outside if you’re lucky enough to go during the warmer months.
Temple of Seitan
As the name suggests, this place is all about food made from the meat substitute seitan. Burgers, fried seitan chicken (their most famous dish) and mac and cheese are all on the menu here – it’s vegan fast food heaven!
OK so it’s not actually a restaurant but we had to include Romeo for one simple reason: it’s simply amazing! They not only serve vegan quiches, bread and cakes but also a huge array of gluten and dairy-free options for those with these specific dietary requirements.
222 is one of the most famous vegan restaurants in London and for good reason. They serve up some seriously healthy vegan food and provide a delicious buffet lunch during the week. We simply love their vegan stroganoff and really can’t wait to go back again!
Who said that vegan food was limiting? Here we have a 100% plant-based Japanese restaurant which is not only the first of its kind but also treats its food as medicine and only serves organic options. You’ll fall in love with their dazzling selection of soups, sushi and tempura.
Another vegan bakery which offers a delicious vegan ice cream cookie sandwich that’s quite simply unmissable. People travel from all across the city to go to this amazing spot in North London which tells you everything you need to know!
The Ugly Dumplings
The name might not sound the most appealing but these ugly dumplings really are the best vegan dumplings in London. They started out as a market stall and have just opened their first place in Covent Garden.
No list would be complete without an Indian option. This chain serves up vegan South Indian food and is spread across many locations in London like Hammersmith, Covent Garden and Tottenham Court. Although they’re technically a vegetarian restaurant they do offer a comprehensive list of vegan options so you’ll definitely be able to find something suitable.
The Coach & Horses
As we’re talking about London we could never end this list without featuring a pub! Here we have the capital’s first vegetarian/vegan pub so if you fancy a vegan fish and chips then you now know where to go! Plenty of dairy-free and soy free options are also available.
