The Begging Bowl

Simply amazing, is the only way to describe this Peckham eating place. With a stylishly distressed asian street food theme, I love everything about the Begging Bowl. Their dishes are just inspired, the mix of flavours and textures is beyond belief. Serving up a wide variety of food, it's a true jewel in the South London crown.

The menu is not entirely vegan but there's always plenty of vegan options and adaptions and they are more than happy to tailor something just for you.. Just go!

 

Cookies & Scream

Vegan and gluten free goodies galore. I'm not normally massive on sweet treats, but woah, this placed changed that all in the space of five seconds. It's amazing to see and taste such 'normal' looking cakes. You'd never know the egg or butter had been replaced with a vegan subsitute. The best thing is, it's all home made and has a huge variety to choose from. The 'Gosh Brownie' was dreamy!

 

Down To Earth

In the heart of one of my favourite areas in London, High Street Kensington, Down To Earth is aptly named. Organic, vegetarian, vegan, raw; they cater for the lot and they're definitely down to earth!  As well as the delicious food on offer I really enjoy the general of ambience of this place. Laid back and the right side of funky, these guys have got the balance between food and fun just right. 

Ethos Foods

Vegetarian buffet heaven. The first time I went to this place, I will admit I went a little overboard on piling my plate a tad too high; but once you get over that hurdle, getting a bit of everything on your plate and still paying a reasonable price, becomes a lot easier. From fresh salads, soy glazed aubergine and the best cauliflower and tahini salad, you are literally spoilt for choice. Just north of Oxford Street, this place is perfect for a lunch pit stop or enjoy for dinner in a most beautiful interior. 

Farm Girl

Bringing the Australian laid back vibe to London, situated in the many streets of Notting Hill, this place is definitely ticks a lot of boxes. Acai bowl goodness (if you don't know by now, I am obsessed), avocado on toast and the best vegan donut you will ever try. They also serve delicious lunches and dinner; mixed grain salads and wholesome veggie bowls. So whether you go here for a girly brunch or for lunch whilst strolling around Portobello Market, your needs will be satisfied for sure, plus the interior is so dreamy. 

Good Life Eatery

One of my favourite go-to brunch places, serving up delicious porridge and granola bowls, hearty salads, wholesome grain dishes and not to mention their epic 'Chuck Norris' chocolate smoothie and fresh cold pressed juices! This was one of first places I visited after arriving back from Australia and every time I visit it leaves me wanting to go back for more. The Good Life Salad is definitely my fall back place , with a side of caramelised onion hummus and a refreshing green juice. Be sure to check out both of their branches - South Kensington and newly opened space in Marylebone. 

Hally's

Situated in the quaint area of Parsons Green, with another, younger version on The King's Road, Hally's Deli continues to live up to their fantastic menu. Their modern and minimalist interior brings a surge of calmn as soon as I set foot in the cafe. This California inspired eatery is the perfect place to set up camp and get writing whilst tucking into a warming bowl of porridge and that much needed caffeine fix. The menu suits a wide variety of people, whether you're vegan or not, there is definitely something for everyone.  

Juice Baby - Kings Road

Hands down this is the best place in London to get your Acai fix. Hidden at the bottom of The King's Road, just a bus ride away from Sloane Square station, Juice Baby is a place you will want to visit. With a huge selection of cold pressed juices, the best raw brazil nut brownie and caramel shortbread and the most generous serving of avocado toast, I can't praise this place enough. Cosy sofas and a chilled vibe, Juice Baby is another one of those, cafe office days. Whilst your there, I also recommend trying their home-made cashew milk - so creamy and not a trace of any nasties in there!   

Mildreds

Now I will warn you, do not rock up at 6pm and expect to be seated at 6pm. This place is in demand and with their newly opened branch in Camden, you can only expect good food from Mildred’s. One of the best vegetarian/vegan restaurants out there, you won't be disappointed. Forget super food salads and think epic curry’s, beetroot burgers, sweet potato fries, burritos... need I go on? Using only the best and freshest ingredients, there's something for everyone on this menu, veggie or not, healthy or slightly more of an indulgent dish, you'll be spoilt for choice. They also do amazing cocktails so whilst your waiting for a seat to become available, sit back relax and sip on a refreshing cucumber and gin cocktail. 

Nama Foods - Notting Hill

A perfect place for a Sunday brunch with the girls if your looking for something healthy but a little different. With an entirely raw menu, don't let that put you off. Pleasing both sweet and savory breakfast goers, raw granola and cashew yogurt, a savory wrap or raw pancakes with banana ice-cream, it's incredible how amazing it tastes. They also do great freshly pressed juices and probably one of the best coconut latte's I’ve had in London. A short walk from Notting Hill Gate station, a perfect location whilst strolling round Portobello Market on a dry day. Check out their site for more information on how everything is made and their amazing, inspiring values. 

Pho!

Vietnamese epicness. Probably one of my favourite cuisines, along with Thai food (yes I know they are relatively similar) but this place has so many options, with the choice of veggie stock instead of a meat or fish based one, swapping chicken for tofu or adding extra mushrooms, there’s no doubt about it, you'll find something you like. I always go for the same - veggie mushroom pho, perfectly balanced with the noodle to veggie ration, spicy but not too much and well, just bloody tasty. The way they serve their dishes allows you to tailor your food to your own needs and likes. With a plate of extra lime, coriander, chilies etc, you can add as much or as little as you want. Their vegetable rice paper rolls are also delicious, paired with an amazing peanut dipping sauce, they are the perfect starter - not too heavy and get your appetite rolling for the big bowl of Pho! There are lots of different locations around London, so check out their site for one that is closest to you. Tasty and affordable, a great week night dinner or just for whenever you fancy it! 

Sticks 'n' Sushi

Sticks 'n' Sushi puts any other sushi chain to shame. Whether you want a small bite to eat or want to go for a few courses at dinner time, this is the place for you. Sesame truffle cauliflower, spicy miso soup and chopped Vietnamese salad, this is literally the place of my dreams. Paired with a side of sticky white rice, you will be left full but oh so satisfied. Full of goodness, exceptional flavours and a variety of textures, Sticks 'n' Sushi is one sushi place you have to put on your list. They cater for everyone under the sun, so fear not if you’re not into traditional sushi or the whole 'raw fish hype', vegans, we are covered! 

Tiosk

Originally just a place from premium tea, Tiosk has developed so much since opening only one year ago. Situated in a permanent spot in the middle of Broadway Market, if you want a cosy place to sit or eat, Tiosk takes you away from the Hustle and Bustle of the busy weekend market. A short walk from London Fields park, you could sit in or take away when it's a little nicer outside. As well as premium tea, they serve probably the best chai i've had. Made fresh from spices and herbs and bewed with almond milk, this perfectly throffed beverage is one you won't want to miss out on. Their food is also amazing. With daily specials cooked up by the amazing chefs, a wholesome and nourishing bowl is something that should be on your lunch time menu. If you are around the area I definitely reccomend you make a stop by here, even if it's just to check out the beautiful interior and take away a raw tumeric date ball and a perfect cuppa' tea. 

Vantra Vitao

Another vegetarian buffet dining experience. Right next to Tottenham Court Road station, at first this place didn't catch my eye as it can be pretty easy to miss. Stepping inside to a slightly dimmer lighting, it's quite ironic you feel ever so lightened inside. Choose from their buffet, full of vibrant and exotic dishes or choose something from their raw menu... just be sure that if you are ordering from the menu that anyone eating from the buffet does this after you have ordered. you'll be eating alone which isn't always the best when tucking into a dish that’s bursting with flavour and looks so pretty you have to Instagram is first! Passionate about their values, Vantra Vitao didn't disappoint! It's the perfect place to take your non-veggie friends and know that they will love it! 

26 Grains

From pop-up to shop, in a cosy spot, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the Covent Garden shoppers, 26 Grains can be found in their permanent spot in Neals Yard, Seven Dials. With a beautiful court yard just outside of the doors, whether you sit in or out, that hearty bowl of porridge will be sure to perk up any kind of day. Changing up the menu on a regular basis, here is the place to really test your love for porridge. The fab interior and friendly staff make this a weekend brunch spot favourite. Pair your porridge with a mug full of chai or a refreshing ginger and mint tea, I can't get enough! Working with nourishing, wholesome ingredients, Alex (founder of 26 grains) sure knows how to make an ordinary bowl of porridge into something truly spectacular.
