Eneko at One Aldwych, London
Having launched a vegetarian lunch menu for Vegetarian Week in May, this Basque-cuisine restaurant offers a symphony of seasonal and fresh flavours direct from three Michelin-starred chef Eneko Atxa’s home country. Think you couldn’t be surprised? Think again, with traditional talo, torrija and wheat stew on offer. They even serve cauliflower four ways (we told you it’s imaginative) and they’ll pair your menu with some gorgeous local Basque wines. Delicioso!
The Hive Wellbeing, London
The cult vegetarian/vegan café in East London is famous for its Hive burger which features 16 hour dehydrated beetroot, courgette and pumpkin seeds with a moreish relish. And, if you’re going with a pescatarian, the restaurant has recently introduced organic salmon to its menu. Oh, and night owls, an aperitivo menu is available every evening until 10pm complete with natural wines – which are pretty much healthy so go on, have a glass (or two).
Terre a Terre, Brighton
If you’re after a culinary journey with wordily influences and ingredients you’re bound to have not heard before, this Brighton spot is for you. But, don’t let their experimental menu put you off, they also have hearty classics like a vegetarian take on traditional fish and chips (soft buttermilk soaked halloumi dipped in chip shop batter served with bright fresh pea mint hash and thick chips) and delicious rostis complete with mustard rarebit toppings. Our top tip? Definitely don’t skip dessert.
Hungry Donkey, London
This family-run Greek street food restaurant in Aldgate has seriously upped its vegan and vegetarian offering. Think halloumi wraps, feta bougiourdi (which is oven-baked feta cheese with tomatoes and paprika) and briam (a traditional dish, which comes from the owner’s grandmother’s recipe, made with oven-roasted vegetables), as well as omelettes, vegetarian souvlaki and a load of other things that will make you feel like you’re in Santorini. Oh, and have we mentioned the organic and bio-dynamic wines on offer? Or the Greek desserts that’ll quite literally blow your mind? A Mediterranean gem in the middle of the city.
The Gate, London
With fans including Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna, this North London vegetarian restaurant has become quite the institution. And, its recent Marylebone branch opening means it’s even more accessible. Best known for its flavoursome dishes inspired by its founders’ Indo-Iraqi and Jewish origins, it’ll impress carnivores and omnivores alike.
