At first it seemed like a fad, something people dabbled in for a short moment (breakfast) and then quickly gave up on (dinner the same day). But then more and more people began seeing the benefits, not just to themselves but to the climate crisis and factory farming industry.
Suddenly, veganism was a full blown movement – and a powerful one at that. People started to voice their desires for more establishments to serve up vegan options, which has now led to restaurants even launching entirely new plant-based menus (some of which are even Michelin starred). And if you’ve made the switch (even if just for January), you’re in good company. Billie Eilish, Lewis Hamilton, Lizzo, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande – even Jay-Z and Beyonce live a plant-based lifestyle. So there’s got to be something in it, right?
Well we recently spent some time in one of the flavour capitals of the world (and recently voted “Best city in the world by Resonance Consultancy), London, checking out some the top Vegan hot spots and plant-based menus to get to the bottom of why everyone is now so Ha-pea to be Vegan right now (sorry). So here it is: our pick of the best vegan restaurants in London.
