Going out for Veganuary?

Luxury & Lifestyle 15-01-2019

It’s now more than two weeks since those well-intentioned new year’s resolutions and temptations to revert back to our old ways might be hammering on the door.

If you made a pledge to go vegan, or are hosting friends and family on a vegan diet, it needn’t mean forgoing some of life’s little indulgences. Here is our selection of some of our favourite eateries in London offering irresistible plant-based dining.

Abuelo

Abuelo is a relaxed restaurant-supper club in the heart of Covent Garden. Noted to be London’s first Antipodean-meets-South American coffee house to reflect the owner’s Australian and Argentinian heritage. The kitchen serves beautifully presented, organic fare with sharing plates, wine and cocktails through the evening.

To rave about, they have house-made vegan cheese which they use for their Mushroom Truffle Toasties; Sumac Roast vegetables with sweet and spicy fire-roasted nuts, a Vegan Bibi Bowl, and Avocado, Chilli and Dark Chocolate Tostadas with vegan chocolate…along with vegan cakes and cookies.
