Finding a place to eat as a vegan is not always an easy task. That is why I decided to launch a new type of articles aimed to inform about the vegan options in some of Europe’s major cities.
London is a magical place when it comes to a lot more than just food. As the United Kingdom’s capital, stretching back to to Roman times, London is popular with its culture and iconic landmarks such as the Big Ben. Visiting London never gets boring as there is always something new to see – that also applies to vegan restaurants and cafes which are continuously popping up all around the city.
If you happen to find yourself near King’s Cross station looking for something vegan to eat, you’d probably find whatever you need right here.
I was a bit sad to find out that there is actually not that much diversity around King’s Cross but there are still some good options a few minutes walk away.

“Delicious vegan food with a touch of spice”
At Thenga Cafe, you can find a menu created from European and Indian cuisines with a “large pinch of Bengal”. The vegan food there it made with fully natural ingredients while an importance is placed on generating as minimum as possible waste. A great focus on both health and the environment.
“Our head chef is the talented Nippa. Strongly influenced by her Bengali culinary heritage, her food also includes Mediterranean elements from 17 years living and working in Italy.”
