Well what is it?



I haven't been to that many but I really enjoyed 222 Veggie Vegan in London although it was expensive by my lowly standards.

I also went to the Warehouse Cafe in Birmingham for the first time last week and really enjoyed it.

For anyone who hasn't been, they both have websites if you want to google.

In Glasgow, the 78 on Kelvinhaugh St - best veggie place by far and it's all vegan. It has a fireplace with big cosy chairs. All the wine is vegan (but sometimes beer is not). Kind of art schooly but not to intimidating for an un-coolsie like me.

Their vegan sister pubs, Stereo and Mono (amazing cheesecake and 'big mono' burger) are also great. Their vegetarian rival, 13th Note... Meh, I've had 3 mediocre meals in a row so I'm just about to give up.

I don't have too much choice in where I name as a favourite: Herbies is about the only dedicated vegetarian restaurant in Exeter! Just as well it's really tasty and great value (massive portions!). If any of you are ever in this green and pleasant part of the land then we can go! I recommend the nut burger with salad and Heaven in Devon for dessert.

My favourite place in Edinburgh is probably either Bonsai or YO!Sushi, neither of which are veg, but they're the best places in town to get veg food (especially if you're with omnis).

Agree on The 78 - I've never had a bad meal or service there, which I can't say for any other veg restaurant I've been to. Stereo and Mono (especially) are really hit-and-miss, and I gave up on The 13th Note long ago.

Annie's Burger Shack in Nottingham has the best burger I've ever eaten in my life. Again, omni, but she has a separate grill for veg stuff and has loads of vegan options (including cheese). If you're ever in Nottingham, go there and get the Drunken mustard - you won't be sorry.

I have been to very few actual veggie places but love Food For Friends and Tibits.
However, food for friends seems to have gone downhill recently, has anybody checked it out?

In London, I was full on obsessed with Food for Thought. They usually have 4 options or so, but then youo have the choice to get a salad or mix of multiple salads on the side. It is a ridiculous amount of food and soooo good.

We really really didn't like Squeak when we were there. I think efcliz also said it's hit and miss. But we paid the most there and had the worst food of anything we had in Nottingham. But your mileage may vary - obviously we went on a bad day.

Demuths in Bath - best food I've had in a restaurant in a long time.

Ha! Well there's a turn up - I've only ever had good food at Squeak (although I realise now that I haven't been there for the best part of this last year, so it might well have lost its lustre) - but on the other hand, I've only ever had lousy food and surly service at Demuths...

Best place for me is the Earth Cafe in Manchester. Reasonably priced and the chocolate nut shake is amazing.

That is very true- I love that place! No vegan puddings though, that I could spot.

I've also been to RouteMaster: (London, Liverpool Street)
Image
A vegan restaurant in a bus. I though the mains were yummy, but the puds were a bit flat. Bit tasteless really! Also for small portions I thought it was a tad expensive (poor student.) It's around £10 a main course, and like I said you're left hungry.

Also Inspiral (London, Camden)
This is totally vegan except one mozzarella sandwich, or something. Who knows. Anyhow, the food was really really really amazing, and they have a great selections of raw vegan ice-creams, and also lots of raw vegan foods. Not just salad, sunfood burgers etc.
They have a few set meals, and you choose the sides you want, like roasted veggies or salads etc. It was delicious! Plenty of food too!

The Inspiral ice cream is to die for, so rich and yum. I think the waitress gave me a taster of all the flavours but I like the coffee amaretto best. Had a mint-choc brownie another time there which was delicious as well.

Yes! I love Inspiral! The mint choc chip ice cream's my favourite & I love the mint chocolate brownie, the chocolate mousse cake & their lasagne's awesome.

Inspiral does an awesome comfort food Lasagna and I like their salads. We've had PPK gatherings there on more than one occasion!

I'm a fan of Terre a Terre in Brighton.

I reaaaaallly like Itadaki Zen a lot, but I think I was the only one who was super impressed.

I loved Itadaki Zen as well, definitely worth another visit. I want to go to Inspiral too, still haven't been there!

Oooh, where in Manc is this? I've been living there 2 years and haven't come across it. The Veggie Cafe at the uni does some vegan stuff, and the Seventh Day Adventist vegetarian shop on Oxford Road does too, but both of them are lunch places rather than dinner places.

Its in the northern quarter down a side street called turner st - http://www.earthcafe.co/
I've never eaten there but its where i met my boyfriend on our very first (blind) date and they didn't have any hot drinks or cake so it was a bit disappointing.

my fave is Dough (also in the northern quarter) for the dairy free pizzas. i <3 them.
and yeopans in chorlton, south manc is a chinese takeaway that do some great mock dishes. i love the spicy mock chilli chicken. mmmmm.

god i'm really hungry now.

There aren't that many vegan places in Dublin, but Blazing Salads (on Drury St) is my favourite, their salads are AMAZING. Also, Cornucopia (Wicklow street) is really delicious too! Both are in Dublin City center.

I know this is mainly vegan/veggie places, but I just realised I should give some props to a local restaurant in case anyone happens to come to Northampton. It's called Fort Kochi and I think they specialise in South Indian food. THEY LABEL VEGAN! And have quite the selection. One of the best meals of my LIFE. I can't believe I spent years not knowing about this place. They do cook meat but are very knowledgeable about vegans. I'm hoping the more I convince other veggies to go there, the more they will think about turning the whole place veggie. One can dream.

Ah cool! I had the lasagne when I went there, the person I was with had lentil-dahl thing- also amazing. I on;y tryed vanilla ice-cream- too sweet actually! Felt a bit sick, but then I shouldn't have been greedy and got two scoops! (Second was... Um, some kind of nut flavour, or maple syrup, I've forgotten...)

My parents mentioned taking me to Terre a Terre when we go to Brighton. Is it expensive though?

Terre a Terre is definitely more expensive than most vegan places but they usually have some kinds deal like 2 courses for £15 or their Terre a Tapas menu which is £30 two people to share a selection of stuff from he menu, chips & wine (there's a non-alcoholic option too). Check out their website, they have a pretty detailed menu section.

Also if you do go get the rain vodka cherry chocolate churros, they're amazing!
