Vegan Restaurants in London Highlights
Want fried chicken just without the chicken part? There’s only one place to go and that’s Temple of Hackney. Ironically located right next door to a butchers, this “chicken” shop actually serves up seitan aka wheat gluten that’s been deep fried and seasoned, and it’s just like the real thing.
Vegan Mexican? It’s happening at Club Mexicana, which you can find at Seven Dials and Carnaby Street. Spice up your life with some hot Baja to-fish tacos and BBQ pulled jackfruit burritos. De-lish.
The Spread Eagle in Homerton is London’s first fully Vegan pub and they go in hard with both their drinks and food offering. If you fancy some ‘cheese’ to go with your Vegan wine then take a pew and order in the shamembert. We have one bit of advice here – do not miss out on the Sunday roast.
The Gate is one of the OG veggie restaurants in London and even after 25 plus years, they’re still going strong with sister sites in Islington and Marylebone. Much of the menu is already vegan but they’re also happy to swap out ingredients on other plates to make them vegan. And they’ve got some bangin’ vegan puds too.
From dairy-free, gluten-free and egg-free pastries at breakfast, salad bowls and wraps at lunch and larger plates like Chili ‘non’ Carne, Ackee Burrito and the Wulf Burger made with a spicy bean and veggie patty topped with cashew aioli, Wulf & Lamb have you covered all day long. They’ve even got sweet stuff from Ruby’s of London so you can treat yourself too.
Clean eating can also be indulgent eating and that’s exactly what Farmacy is all about. There’s vegan and gluten free nachos with guac and refried beans; a millet, black bean and mushroom burger; a spelt sourdough pizza and Austrian Sacher cake with tigernut milk Nice Cream, proving you don’t always have to stick to salads.
