Taste of London has plenty of vegan-friendly fun to get stuck into this November. Read on for our guide to the perfect plant-based day at the festival.
Neat Burger's Neat Burger
Kick start your vegan Taste of London experience with a swing by Lewis Hamilton’s Neat Burger for a sample of their signature dish, featuring a Double Neat patty, grilled red onions, pickled salad and neat sauce in a bun. No judgments here if you can’t resist throwing in a portion of chick’n nuggets whilst you wait.
World Class Cocktail Bar
Wash down your neat treats with a handcrafted cocktail prepared by yours truly, as you shake up your own cocktail under the guidance of the World Class bartenders. Christmas party cocktail plans, sorted.
Bubala's Grapefruit Ezme Salad
Vegetarian Israeli outfit Bubala have been making waves since their recent launch with a slew of great reviews under their belt. Take your pick between their aubergine Yemen style with zhoug and date syrup, their ultimate hummus or the grapefruit ezme salad with peppers and grapefruit served on tahini with pomegranate molasses before weaving your way through the artisan producer markets.
Seasonal Secrets with Steven Lamb
Jazz up your kimchi game, festive-style at Steven Lamb’s Christmas Kimchi workshop. Prep your own sprout-infused kimchi to take home or turn into a fermented stocking filler.
Anju's Korean Fried Cauliflower
Continue the Korean vibes with a visit to Anju for a taste of their Korean Fried Cauliflower, marinated and double fried for extra crispiness and served with white radish pickle.
Beerblefish Brewing Co
All that delicious spicy food deserves a hopped accompaniment. Pop by Beerblefish Brewing Co to sample their vegan-friendly beers, including the Great Taste Award-winning 1892 IPA. What’s more, their profits go to supporting educational charities. The perfect way to spread the Christmas cheer.
It’s definitely time for a slice of something sweet. Swing by Candy Kittens to pick up a pouch of vegan-friendly gourmet sweets made entirely from natural colours and flavours, or drop by Amanda Foods to select your favourite vegan marshmallows to roast over the flames at The Campfire.
The Phat Cats
No Taste of London experience is complete without a dance to the best festive beats in the capital. This year The Phat Cats will have roaming musicians, DJs, acts at the Taste Tavern and even a choir to bring on the Christmas cheer.
Before you call it a night, there’s just time to drop by The Brook to sample their delicious plant-based recipe boxes that you can get delivered straight to your door, to keep the Taste magic alive beyond the festival.
