Top 5 – Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurants in London

Mildreds vegetarian resturant Soho London burger

As more and more people in London tighten up their diets and turn to veganism and vegetarianism, the ever-expanding pool of high-quality restaurants responds accordingly. There is no shortage of fantastic veggie-friendly and even veggie-only spots that have honed the craft, whipping up a kale-storm that could sweep away even life-long carnivores. Below are our pick of the best within a short tube ride’s distance from Qbic London and some of the touristic hotspots.  Even bloody Pret, the city’s biggest fast-food chain, has opened up a vegetarian pop-up. Vegetables are about to go mainstream, and we’re gonna ride the asparagus train all the way home.

 

Mildred’s
A staple for veggies in London, Mildred’s is quickly becoming a Soho institution.  The menu is varied menu full of simple and wholesome Asian and Middle-Eastern inspired plates, from near-perfect gyoza dumplings to a beautifully coconutty Sri Lankan sweet potato curry. Like most hype restaurants in London, there is a no booking policy, which means a lengthy queue at peak times – but these normally go a lot quicker than you might think. The atmosphere is lively and casual, and the food is certainly worth the wait.

Sagar
The cheap, but undoubtedly delicious option. Home to a fine selection of South-Indian dishes, Sagar is a totally vegetarian and predominantly vegan haven. Main dishes include a variety of rice and lentil-based Dosa pancakes with various fillings and lentil-based ‘pizzas’ called Uthappams, which are served with delicious vegetable stew ‘sambar’ and a creamy coconut chutney.

Where: 31 Catherine St, London WC2B 5JS

Nearest Tube: Covent Garden

Vanilla Black
You know when a restaurant is throwing around the word ‘contemporary’ in it’s website’s mission statement, that sh*t is gonna get crazy. Vanilla Black is the Picasso of vegetarian restaurants in London, taking the creative process to the next level. Take, for example, the deconstructed cheesecake pictured above (now retired from the menu unfortunately). Each element is separated, and displayed in an abstract manner. Whatsmore, the flavour combination is left up to the customer. Power is finally back in your hands – grab it with all your might.

The Wild Food Café
This one may not be for the recently converted or half-hearted vegetarians. The Wild Food Café serves on raw vegan food that is both healthy and tasty, though it may take overcoming some predispositions. It’s particularly enjoyable at lunchtime, separated from the bustle of central London on the first floor, overlooking Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden. Lovely on a summer’s day.

Where: 1, 14 Neal’s Yard, London WC2H 9DP
How Much: ££
Nearest Tube: Covent Garden

Itadaki Zen
Once again, this one may not be for everyone. All the food at Itadaki Zen is vegan and organic. The menu primarily consists of seaweed, tofu and noodle-based dishes. It is the healthy alternative to the common sushi spot; even the desserts are sugar-free. A guilt-free meal out for the brave.

Nearest Tube: King’s Cross St Pancras
