Happy 2022!

Setting new goals and looking forward to a fresh, new start? Time to try some buy, now pay later restaurants this Veganuary!

Have a healthier lifestyle and save the environment by going vegan! An annual challenge run by a non-profit organisation in the UK, the Veganuary movement began in 2014.

Since then, veganism has skyrocketed in the UK. A survey by The Vegan Society in May 2021 showed that one in four Brits had reduced the amount of animal products they were consuming since the start of 2019.

The number of vegans in the UK also quadrupled from 2014 to 2021. So join in the fun and start by trading meat, fish, dairy and eggs for healthy plant-based goodness this month.

And at Mildreds, it’s always Veganuary. All month, every month, forever.

But that’s not all. Exclusively this month, they’ll be serving up some new specials. Get ready for some Katsu hotdogs, Plum Tofu Gua Bao buns and White Miso broth!

Plus some refreshing mocktails for those doing dry January. And some next-level cocktails for those who aren’t.

P.S. They just opened a new branch in Borough Market too, so you can shop for some fresh vegan produce after your meal!

Palm Greens

1 Westgate St, London E8 3RL

Nestled in the heart of Hackney, this quirky vegan café truly hits the spot.

If all-day breakfast is up your street, then you’re in for some tasty treats!

From granola bowls to plant-based pastries, savoury pancakes with tempeh, Mexican tostadas and kale Caesar salad with truffle oil, every option is bursting with amazing flavours!

We absolutely recommend their E5 Hackney Wild Toast with tahini maple cinnamon and homemade jam. Yum!

Café Van Gogh

88 Brixton Road, London SW9 6BE

If you’re looking for a cosy corner café with an artsy ambience, this is it.

Café Van Gogh is famous for cooking delish plant-based dishes using seasonal ingredients.

Their menu changes every 6-8 weeks but we highly recommend their scrumptious staples.

Make sure to try their Vegetable Soup with Croque Monsieur, Van Gogh Burger with Beer Onion Relish, Sunday Nut Roast and Sticky Toffee Pudding with Chocolate Ice Cream!

Govinda’s Restaurant

10 Soho Street, London W1D 3DL

Though situated at the heart of Soho this family-owned Indian resto is one of the city’s best-kept secrets.

It’s not immediately noticeable because it’s inside Radha-Krishna Temple. It has been around since 1979, making it one of London’s oldest vegetarian eateries.

They have a wide array of vegan options too. You can get a Vegan Thali Set with rice, bean pot or lentil soup, vegetable curry, poppadoms and salad for only £6.95!

For those with a sweet tooth, they also serve a variety of cakes and traditional Indian desserts flavoured with aromatic spices.

There you have it! An entire cherry-picked list of the best vegan restos to check out with your family, friends and loved ones!
