Guide to London’s Best Vegan Street Food

I’m sure the vegans among us can appreciate the joy I felt when, around 6 months ago I was strolling through Soho, London and unexpectedly found myself in the midst of Soho Vegan Market. What a treat it was, endless vegan street food options to indulge in. In fact, I enjoyed myself so much that it sparked a bit of an obsession. I wanted to experience the best vegan street food London had to offer.

6 months on and I may have managed just that, all the while knowing I’ve been supporting small local business and eating ethically and sustainably. London is of course, a big city. But I have been from Brixton to Stoke Newington and more, dutifully sampling vegan cuisine as I go in the interest of sharing my recommendations with you. So here is my thoroughly and enjoyably researched guide to London’s best vegan street food, I hope you enjoy!

 

Soho Vegan Market

An obvious place to start considering it’s where I started! Soho Vegan Market is on Rupert Street every Saturday serving up the best cheap eats from up and coming vegan food talent. My favourite stalls include Little Leaf Pizza and Oh My Gulay which is 100% plant based Filipino inspired street food. The stalls change regularly so you can keep going back. Plus, it’s in an ideal location being so central and close to some of London’s main tourist attractions.

Best stalls:

  • Lils Falafel
  • Little Leaf Pizza
  • Oh My Gulay
  • Omkara
  • V for Vegan
  • Vegan Rudeboy

Other things to do in the area:

  • Shopping on Oxford Street
  • Listen to live jazz at Ronnie Scott’s
  • Check out Piccadilly Circus & Leicester Square
  • A Harry Potter walking tour
  • Trafalgar Square & The National Gallery
  • Shopping in Covent Garden

Box Park

Box Park Shoreditch

Shoreditch is another great area to explore. It’s easy to get to and full of slightly more off grid tourist attractions in comparison to Soho. I recommend the street art walking tours! But back to Box Park, the best vegan street food in Shoreditch. Fusing the concepts of the modern street food market and pop-up mall, Box Park exudes creativity and liveliness. My favourite stands are What the Pitta and Eat Chay which is plant based East Asian food. Box Park also has a bar and plenty of other vegan street food options for you to peruse at your leisure. Thankfully it’s open all day, everyday so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to go.

Camden Market

You’d be crazy to miss Camden market while in London, regardless of all the delicious vegan food options. There are thousands of unique shops, food stalls and bars to explore plus regular outdoor film screenings and busking events to enjoy. There really is no where else like it and I still haven’t manged to explore the market entirely. Although, this might be due to the fact I focus on food whenever there! My favourite stand is Maize Blaze. Not all dishes are entirely plant based but damn, that vegan Colombian street food is game changing. As is Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner, get the hotdog!
