The festive season just gone may not have been normal (as in we weren’t eating and drinking out to excess) but if you do want to rein it in a bit or you just want to switch up your delivery game, January is the perfect time to try cutting down on meat and dairy. Luckily going vegan, whether it’s just for the month or for the whole year, doesn’t have to mean eating leaves thanks to these Veganuary specials.
Smokin’ Vegun at Filthy Buns
A filthy vegan twist on one of our fave buns. The loaded Smokin’ Vegun features a plant-based patty pimped with crispy “bacun”, Bourbon BBQ sauce, crispy onions and a white miso sauce. That’s one heck of a special. But if that doesn’t get you drooling they’ve got plenty of other vegan bangers too.
Available for takeaway from their burger hatch in Dalston along with delivery from Filthy Buns.
Apple, Blackberry & Salted Caramel Pancakes at The Breakfast Club
A cross between breakfast and the sort of pudding your grandma would make, this stack from The Breakfast Club features slow-cooked Bramley apples & blackberries, granola crumble, vegan vanilla cream, salted caramel & roasted coconut stuffed in between and on top of vegan, gluten-free pancakes.
Available for delivery from The Breakfast Club throughout January
Plant & Dec at Patty & Bun
Continuing their tradition of naming burgers after famous peeps, Patty & Bun have created the Plant & Dec for Veganuary. It’s a vegan fried chicken patty topped with ranch mayo, buffalo sauce, pickled red onions and iceberg lettuce. We reckon Ant & Dec would approve.
Available for takeaway and delivery from Patty & Bun throughout January
Chai Custard Doughnuts at Crosstown
You don’t have to deny yourself sweet treats this Veganuary thanks to Crosstown, who have created a brand new chai custard doughnut (vegan sourdough doughnut filled with an oat milk chai tea custard and topped with pecan cinnamon crumble) and a prana chai ice cream made with almond milk. They’ve also made two vegan cookies – peanut butter & choc chip and apricot & chocolate – in case biscuits are more your vibe.
Available for collection and delivery from Crosstown from Fri 8th January
Tribute to Jamaica at Honest Burgers
Honest Burgers is serving some island sunshine for Veganuary with a collab burger with Jamaican vegan kitchen Dee’s Table. It’s a plant-based patty topped with THIS Isn’t bacon, vegan smoked gouda, plantain fritters, Jamaican curry ‘mayo’ and Dee’s homemade apricot & scotch bonnet ketchup.
Available for collection and delivery from Honest Burgers from Tues 5th January – Mon 1st February
Notkotsu at Bone Daddies
Bone Daddies has created London’s first vegan tonkotsu ramen, mimicking that silky meaty bone broth without using any meat. As well as the plant-based broth, the Notkotsu is topped with THIS Isn’t pork belly, mushrooms, beansprouts, spring onion, pickled ginger and burnt garlic mayu oil. Get slurping.
Available for collection and delivery from Bone Daddies
Flat Earth Vegan Pizzas
Flat Earth Pizzas are already totally vegetarian but for Veganuary they’ve launched a entirely plant-based menu on Deliveroo. That means you can get the likes of winter squash & kale, kimchi, and Hackney Hot pizzas with The ‘Arty Vegan melty mozza. And they’re also hiding £200 worth of vouchers in their Deliveroo bags so you could win some alongside your pizza.
Veganuary Variety Box at Knead A Little Love
Treat yo’self to a whole load of vegan treats with this spesh Veganuary box from Balham-based Knead A Little Love. There are nine different flavours in there, including spiced apple, strawberry jam and date & caramel glaze, but the chocolate orange doughnut is the one to grab, especially if you’ve already scoffed all your Christmas choccies.
Available for delivery from Knead a Little Love
Meatless Meatball Wrap at Pret
Pret’s Swedish Meatball Hot Wrap has gone vegan for Veganuary with plant-based meatballs created in partnership with Meatless Farms, plus red tapenade, chipotle ketchup and crispy onions. And in case you needed any more convincing, check out Big Zuu’s ‘Meatless Meatball Ting’ rap. A rap for a wrap…see what they did there?
