Here are 5 of London’s finest vegan-friendly food places.

Vegan-friendly fried “chicken” | Vogue

Temple of Seitan

Famous for its vegan-friendly fried “chicken”, made from the meat substitute seitan. This junk food joint, located in the increasingly hip Hackney, has lines queuing round the corner! It seems people can’t get enough of this American inspired fast food. Additionally, this place is worth the wait if you also wish to try their dairy-free Mac ‘n’ Cheese! A favourite among locals and visitors alike!

Rabbit

On the other hand, if you fancy something more upmarket, head to Chelsea’s Rabbit! You will have to ask in advance for vegan, but this does not limit your choices! With a menu offering recent options of caraway crisp bread with green tomato and wood sorrel you know you’re in for a treat! And if this fancy food doesn’t float your boat simply pop in, if only to honour the irony of its name! A vegan-friendly restaurant called Rabbit, priceless!

Cookies and Scream

But what if you have more of a sweet tooth? Then the perfect place you’re looking for is Cookies and Scream! This vegan and gluten-free joint boasts 2 London locations: Camden and Holloway Road. A bakery offering everything from doughnuts, pies and brownies to nice cream and their specially developed Scream Shakes! This is a bakery not to be missed!

The Classic Marinara | TimeOut

Pizza Pilgrims

There is not a man, vegan or carnivore, that doesn’t like pizza! So why should you have to miss out just because your ethical choices don’t allow the use of animal products?  And with the price as low as £5 for their iconic Marinara, you shouldn’t! This pizza is sold in every branch and is one of the most popular Neopolitan pizzas! So try it for yourself, pilgrimage down to Soho and get nibbling on their deep-fried artichoke hearts!
