London calling … and this vibrant city has so much to offer.
If you’re vegan then do not be afraid … starving in London is impossible, the variety of vegan restaurant seems endless and I was torn between the must-go places I had written down on a list.I have been Vegan for 4.5 years so far (and ongoing) and when I was in London the last time 2014 I was not even a Vegatarian, so I had to catch up with all the good stuff.
I have only been to few eateries yet but can highly recommend them !!!!!
Temple of Seitan
Hackney: 10 Morning Ln, E9 6NA
Camden: 03a Camley Street, N1C 4PF
Vegan Fast Food ! Yes, we eat unhealthy stuff, too. The breaded chicken was crispy in the bun and also the coleslaw salad was really nice.
Temple of Seitan is what you’re looking for when you’re craving fast food. Don’t expect á la carte menues, but expect amazing Burger, Fries, Wings, Chickn pieces, Coleslaw salad, Mac n Cheese, different kinds of sauces and Cakes.
The portion was quite good, I thought that Temple of Seitan is a bit pricey for just Burgers.
Nora&Nama on Camden Market
Unit 596-598, Camden Lock, NW1 8AF
Their business is 100% plantbased and only opened at Camden Market by well… Nora and Nama in December 2018.
You can find delicious Cakes, Truffles, Baklava, Mergingue, Brownies and Chocolates there, hot beverages are also available. I had the vegan cheesecake which was fluffy, creamy and melted in my mouth, comparable to a foodgasm. I kid you not, you gotta try ’emThey have a wee shop there with plantbased cakes and brownies and coffee/tea.
Unity Diner near Shoreditch Tube Station
5 Hoxton Market, N1 6HG
Unity Diner is a restaurant founded in 2016 by Earthling Ed. The food is amazing and almost every seat was taken when I went there around 2pm, you better book a table. The menu looks great and the prices are reasonable. All of the profits from Unity Diner go directly towards funding the animal rights organisation Surge as well as the development of a brand new rescue sanctuary for animals just outside of London.
I had Cauliflower Wings, The Surge Burger, Baked Cheesecake and a sugarfree Fritz Kola. It was soooo good, the burger was amazing! If you’re in London, definitely go there, you won’t regret ! I spent around 25 pounds in total plus tip but because I support sanctuaries, it is definitely worth it.
If you have been eating Kebab with meat then you should try this out for a change, you won’t be disappointented. Vegan Kebab can taste really nice if it’s made well and spiced up with lots of other toppings and ingredients which do not contribute to animal suffering.
Started as a family franchise, What the Pitta does a great job ! Seriously ! This vegan Kebab is sooo good and the flavours are incredible. The Kebab is made with freshly made bread, mixed salad, spiced soya, tzaziki (I love love tzaziki – a joghurt sauce with lots of garlic and cucumber)., homemade hummus and chili saue. They also have other Turkish inspired dishes to offer to Vegans, Meat Eaters and Vegetarians.
If it happens to be a Sunday and you would like to take a stroll, then you should head over to Old Brick Lane Market. On Sundays you can find nice gems at the vintage market and several food stalls, too.
When I was there I found a stall of The Dutch Poffertjes. Poffertjes are small pancakes and there a vegan options available.
London, you did not fail in offering mouthwatering foods. I will be back in July for a weekend and hopefully have some time to check out different locations.
