Going vegetarian is something a lot of us have thought about.
Everyone knows there’s little to be desired about the meat industry, and although we may justify it by buying ‘organic’ and ‘free-range’, the reality is we know we should all just cut down on the amount of meat we eat. There is certainly no need to eat meat with every meal and there are so many incredible vegetables, pulses and grains that we can get creative with in the kitchen.
So in the spirit of cutting down on how much meat we eat, we decided to share with you our two favourite vegetarian restaurants in London. Try one out for your next date night, or dinner with friends and you might be surprised by how little you’ll miss the meat that is usually on your plate!
An institution in Soho, Mildred’s has been around since 1988 and it’s been pulling in customers from all across London with the delicious and inventive dishes on offer. Mildreds serves up colourful vegetarian and vegan food packed full of flavor that is incredibly satisfying.
The restaurant has done so well since it first opened that they now have two more, one in Camden and the other in King’s Cross. Our favourite is the Sri Lankan sweet potato and green bean curry which is absolutely delicious!
Serving fantastic food since 1989, this award winning restaurant, set up by brothers Adrian and Michael David has certainly made its mark in the vegetarian dining world. The vibrant dishes are inspired by the brothers’ Indo-Iraqi Jewish heritage and the food their grandmothers used to cook.
With vegan and gluten free options available on the menu and bio-dynamic wines on the wine list, The Gate really caters for all requirements. We recommend visiting the original restaurant in Hammersmith, in a converted warehouse space, the double height space and large windows make it special.
