Plant-based dining is all the rage, and as with so many new trends, London is at the very forefront, helping to drive innovation and growth in an increasingly competitive culinary sector. The following are some of the city’s most exciting new plant-based bars, cafes and restaurants sure to give visitors a taste of something new…
Wild Food Café
The mission statement of this Covent Garden café is clear; connecting people through the magic of plant-based food, with the aim of fuelling a much larger sustainability movement which inspires local communities to adopt some of the same principles outside of the café as well as during their visit. Wild Food Café is one of London’s most popular plant-based dining experiences, winning rave reviews in national press and providing a unique chance to try the very best of plant-based dining in the heart of the city while visiting any of our hotels near Shoreditch.
This glossy eatery provides lots to enjoy for those interested in finding out more about plant-based eating, with a distinctly luxurious edge. With boasts of ‘clean indulgence’, the menu is healthy and free from all sorts of chemical additives, making it one of West London’s top health food joints. ‘Earth Bowls’ are one of the most popular dishes, where healthy plant-based fare is eaten with a spoon from this signature treat – and there’s lots of health-conscious comfort food to be enjoyed for those staying at M by Montcalm Shoreditch rooms.
The Spread Eagle
Billed as London’s first all-vegan pub, the Spread Eagle has much to recommend it, including quirky décor and a welcoming atmosphere – but the food and drink are some of the very best plant-based fare to be found in the city, making it a fitting inclusion to this list. Situated within one of East London’s oldest venues, the pub never shies away from celebrating all that is great about the UK’s modern culture, and this dog-friendly, family-friendly space is one to be savoured during your stay at our hotels near Shoreditch.
This basement venue conceals a decidedly high-end dining experience with plenty of plant-based flair. Japanese-themed aesthetics and dishes complement a fixed menu which is as eclectic as it is delicious, proving that plant-based food needn’t be dull or underwhelming. Inventiveness is key to the success of this space, as is a dedication to providing a deluxe service as soon as patrons step through the door. Whilst not entirely centred around plant-based food, each dish on the menu has its own vegan alternative which is just as intricately crafted and impressive as any meat or fish-based dish, helping to emphasize how far vegan and vegetarian dining has come.
For a simple but delicious plant-based dining venue, head to VBurger. The city’s favourite vegan burger bar is located in Camden Market, with a lively and fun-filled atmosphere helping to encourage plenty of visitors from both London and further afield through the doors.
