Wazir Turkish Restaurant
My latest discovery is this beautiful Turkish restaurant. I went there with a couple of friends and let me say I was blown away. The vibe was great full of stunning Turkish music and the food was delicious. It has everything from Lentil soup to meat dishes such as Lamb Shank. It is a good place to go if you are one of the only vegans or vegetarians among big meat eaters as the options are mouthwatering. I am actually planning to go back quite soon.
This one is a good place to go if fancy nibbles and a good place to chat. The vegan options are there but are minimal. I had the vegan burger and it was tasty (albeit a little bit greasy) The main reason to visit this place though is the ambience. It is just by the River Themes and the lights and the vibe of the place make it special and a night you would remember. Just maybe don’t go there if you are hungry and looking for a good vegan option.

My vegan brunch spot of choice. I haven’t been here in a while because I’ll admit, it’s a place I would go if I want a treat. It has everything from vegan pancakes to scrambled Ackee and the densest vegan carrot cake to die for. I am the type of person who prefers a birthday brunch rather than dinner and this is definitely the spot. It’s just off Kings Road so you can have a lovely afternoon playing around the Saatchi Gallery and independent book stores. A blissful Sunday if you ask me.
I haven’t been here since 2018 but let me tell you now I still talk about the Bombay Potatoes and Okra fries I had at Dishoom. If you haven’t been there before, be warned, there will be a bit of a wait but it will be worth it. Once you’re in you’re good to go. They have a special vegan menu which I love. They also do a good Indian brunch which I need to go too at some point.
If you know anything about Indian cuisine you will have heard of Dosa’s. They are essentially crepes filled with whatever you could want. I was told about this place by my roommate and was told specifically about the Dosas and I have to say I adored it. I had the potato one (the only vegan one) it was light and delicious. They also have noodles, curries and other food to choose from if you don’t fancy a Dosa.
The London food scene is so massive I feel like I have only scratched the surface. Let me know if you have any recommendations.
