So you’ve made it halfway through Veganuary living off avocado toast and limp salads and are craving a meal out with a bit of a bite. Thankfully we’re here to help with our edit of the best Veganuary menus on offer this month, from Greek-style meatballs packed with a punch to four-course Indian-influenced feasts. Read on to get inspired about dining vegan in London.

London Vegan Menus To Sample This Veganuary 

Holy Carrot x Cowspiracy

Knightsbridge’s plant-based restaurant Holy Carrot has teamed up with COWSPIRACY, the American documentary film which made headlines in 2014, to create a Veganuary menu that promotes and raises awareness of a plant-based diet. 

After the success of last year’s collaboration together, they have teamed up again this January to create a ‘meaty’ four-course set menu, all paired alongside a refreshing SAVOIA L’Americano welcome cocktail. 

Dishes include ‘steak tartare’, made with ox heart tomato, crispy crackling, Pommery mustard and cornichons; ‘Shepherd’s Pie’ croquettes with smoked beets, crunchy onion hay, black lentils and thyme sauce; Glazed Doughnut with smoked BBQ mushrooms, harissa and bacon jam and pan gravy; and Pecan Pie with a maple glaze and smoked yoghurt ice cream.
