While planning vegetarian meals in a foreign country can feel like you are missing out, as a city, London caters very well for vegetarians. In fact, the United Kingdom has been rated as having one of the highest levels of vegetarianism in Europe in recent studies! When touring with a British Tours private driver-guide, you can certainly try the best vegetarian food London has to offer!
London vegetarian restaurants range from the homely to the sophisticated, with plenty in between to satisfy. One of the older vegetarian restaurants, Manna in Primrose hill, is a wonderful choice offering international as well as British cuisine, just on the door step of one of London’s more beautiful viewing spots. Closer to the centre, our clients are spoilt for choice. Sagar in Covent Garden offers dosas (Savoury pancakes that will make you forget sweet ones) and Mildreds in soho, with sweet potato chips to die for! Another great site in London with some history to it is Govinda’s in Soho Square, a curry house which famously has links with George Harrison of the Beatles!
Food Markets, such as Camden Market, Borough Market and Greenwich Market all offer an extensive range of vegetarian street foods. These are often vendors who sell vegetarian options as well as meat options, but occasionally you will see dedicated vegan or vegetarian food stalls. These can range from creative burgers, wraps and finger foods to delightfully decorated vegan cupcakes and vegetarian churros!
Ask your private London driver-guide to take you to one of London’s markets to sample some London vegetarian food while on your London sightseeing tour.
