London’s Finest Vegan Establishments
The perceived pros of veganism are widely reported in today’s society and there is no question that the vegan movement is rapidly growing. With benefits including personal health improvements, animal welfare and helping the planet, there’s certainly a lot to be said about opting for a plant-based diet.
With its appeal more widespread than ever, top quality vegan food has never been so accessible and so in demand. So, whether you’ve been steering clear of animal-derived foods and products for years or if you fancy giving it a go for the first time this summer, we’ve assembled some of the finest vegan spots based here in London to give you some inspiration.
Head chef at this luxury restaurant, Alexis Gauthier, has been a practicing vegan since 2016 but his work with plant-based foods dates back to the 90s. Specialising in French cuisine, Gauthier Soho opened in 2010 and became fully vegan at the same time as its head chef. As a multi-award-winning restaurant, their menus aim to form a new plant-based future for food, whilst maintaining the standards associated with fine dining. With a ‘Petit Diner’ and ‘Grand Diner’ menu on offer, you’re sure to find something to suit your appetite and an impressive wine list allows diners to pair their food with the perfect tipple.
Located in Knightsbridge, Holy Carrot is open for all-day dining and offers a slightly more informal way to enjoy plant-based cuisine. Its focus is on the creation of a warm and inviting environment that provides ethically-sourced, seasonal dishes. The menu is truly global, catering for all tastes, and a creative bar menu will ensure you can find the ideal accompaniment to your meal. The restaurant has also partnered up with the sustainability-impassioned royal turned model, Amelia Windsor, to produce an exclusive afternoon tea menu with a vegan twist.
Inspired by cuisines from all over the world, Mallow sources its ingredients from small, sustainable businesses and is based in the heart of Borough Market. The establishment prides itself on being the first fully plant-based restaurant to open in the 260-odd year history of the market and it aims to wow diners with a vibrant and colourful menu, whilst protecting the planet.
If you look hard enough, you’ll find a vegan version of just about every type of cuisine you can think of. As demand continues to soar, why not give it a go and visit one of our high-end, recommended spots.
