5 Vegan restaurants to try out this Veganuary

Contrary to popular belief, attempting Veganism isn’t just about eating stodgy breads and tofu-infused everything. There’s actually plenty to digest within London’s food scene if you know where to look,  with plucky newcomers changing the way we view (and consume) vegan food. We’ve rounded up some of London’s coolest Vegan Restaurants to spruce up your Veganuary.

EAT GENESIS

This bright pink vegan restaurant is hard to miss, even amongst the culinary showcase that is Shoreditch. This 100% plant based alchemy restaurant offers fast casual dining and organic comfort food – not to mention – its super Instagrammable too.

 

SPREAD EAGLE

Have you ever heard of a ‘Vegan Pub’? We surely haven’t. The mere thought of a pub minus the proverbial carvery/Sunday roast option seems almost blasphemous in the eyes of pub purists, so when Spread Eagle first opened its doors in Homerton we were certainly intrigued. The Vegan fare is served up by Club Mexicana, a street food favourite that finds its semi-permanent home in this perky Homerton boozer. Of course, a vegan pub wouldn’t be complete without some vegan beers on tap, and here, there are 16 to choose from.

FARMACY

This Notting Hill favourite is a beautiful spot that markets ‘clean indulgence’; inviting diners to indulge in healthy comfort food minus dairy, refined sugars, or any chemical additives. Farmacy was well ahead of its time, and in a way, paved the way for clean eating aficionados in London and beyond

BY CHLOE

By Chloe’s London opening was met with almost frantic fanfare and with good reason, because they serve Vegan food minus all the preciousness that so often comes with healthy eating.Vegans rejoice!

REDEMPTION BAR

According to Catherine Salway, founder of Shoreditch’s Redemption Bar, “you can spoil yourself without spoiling yourself”; which is the ethos that informs London’s first alcohol free bar. Not only can you give your liver a break and redeem yourself from your usual ‘7 day a week drinking’ motto — you can also revel in some guilt-free indulgence through their fully gluten free menu.

Eating #ethically #flavourpacked food is SO EASY you 2020 #vegans don’t know how good you have it! There were darker times of sad dinners out, constant bags of emergency nuts spilling in your handbag, pitiful looks from friends and family, fearful of catching your compassion! Endless buckets of black tea and coffee and lets not mention dry falafels and mountains of sad unseasoned cous cous…we’ve paved the way for a brighter, vegan future where being vegan and eating plantbased is now THE NORM, THE THING, EVEN COOL (no one cares about cool) Thank you to all the early adopters, late comers and those all on an open, inquisitive path. The animals, the planet and your body salutes you! 🙏🏽
