Whether you’re already following a plant-based diet, trying to incorporate more veggies into it or jumping in with both feet and getting into the spirit of Veganuary this year, there are plenty of options available at Spitalfields Market with our food trucks and restaurants.
The East End of London is known for its diverse and delicious selection of street food offerings, from Ethiopian to Indian to Eastern Mediterranean, many of which offer veggie and vegan dishes that certainly do not lack substance or flavour when it comes to missing meat. Below, discover what one of the best food markets in London can offer to kick start your Veganuary challenge.
Crosstown: vegan junk food done right
Having recently expanded their award-winning doughnut empire to include ice cream and cookies, Crosstown caters for all, especially when it comes to vegan choices. Many of their bestsellers, including the OG Sri Lankan Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut and the Dark Chocolate Truffle are already egg and dairy-free! To ramp up this year’s Veganuary selection, you can enjoy brand new additions to the ever-expanding menu such as the Chai Custard Doughnut, Prana Chai Ice Cream and the Peanut Butter Cookie. Can’t decide? Treat yourself to a combo box of different flavours – your support bubble will love you! Order from Crosstown here.
Leon: the fast food that is good for the planet
Leon already offers a pretty extensive vegan-friendly menu, loaded with the best of the season’s veggies. Check out their Brazilian Black Bean Plant Box, the LOVe Burger and the new Cheezy Loaded Fries – baked fries smothered in vegan cheese and sprinkled with a generous topping of jalapeños. Is anyone else drooling?
This year, to encourage more people to join the Vegang, they’ve launched an exciting new vegan subscription service, giving members a healthy 30% off all plant-based LEON dishes ordered from their menu. The subscription is only £6/month and offers a unique opportunity to try out a healthier way of eating without too much commitment. For more information and to sign up, head to the Leon website here.
Brother Marcus: fresh fruit & veg boxes straight to your door
Missing your weekly lunchtime trip to the Gyoza Gazebo here on Lamb Street? You’re in luck as you can continue to get your Rainbo fix on UberEats, Deliveroo and Just Eat. Switch from your usual Chicken Katsu Rice Box to one of their marvelously meat-free offerings. We recommend the shiitake mushroom and tofu gyoza served on a bed of crunchy Rainbo slaw with homemade dipping sauce or the dangerously moreish Edamame Spring Rolls.
