As an avid traveler born to Danish peripatetic parents, I’ve had the pleasure of tasting my away across many cities. Following on from my celebration of the Vegan MoFo (Month of Food), these are my favourite vegan eateries from around the world:
Tucked away on a cobblestoned street in the trendy Nørrebro neighborhood, Café N is a quaint hole-in-the-wall vegetarian spot serving vegan friendly comfort food. Their juices are fresh, the burger scrumptiously satisfying and the owner a friendly flirt. End your meal at Props next door, a characteristically cozy café that epitomizes Danish ‘hygge’.
Café N — Blågårdsgade 17, 2200 København, Denmark
- NEW YORK
The most innovative and exciting menu I have ever tasted is served at Pure Food & Wine, a raw food restaurant in New York serving only fresh organic & vegan food that hasn’t been cooked above 118 degrees (Fahrenheit). Sip an inventive take on classic cocktails with a sake-infused mojito before guiltlessly indulging in a feast of the likes of vegan tamales, lasagne & scallops and their impressive array of deceptively delicious raw desserts.
Pure Food & Wine — 54 Irving Pl, New York, NY 10003, United States
This unpretentious Tibetan-Nepali eatery serves simple, delicious food, with an abundance of vegan options. The must-haves include two kinds of Nepalese dumplings ‘momos’, the deeply flavorful Ashom Thang corn soup and the stir fried tofu dish with a kick, Chili Dofu
Café Himalaya — 78 E 1st Street, New York, NY 10009
With locations in Noho & Brooklyn Heights, this laidback café serves the best gluten free vegan burger in the city. Seriously, it’s magical. Pair it with the heavenly Coco Peanut Brain shake, the perfect blend of peanut butter, cacao, banana & ginkgo, subbing in almond milk, and you’ve got the perfect American meal.
Siggy’s – 76 Henry Street, Brooklyn 11201 & 292 Elizabeth Street, New York, NY 10012
On a quiet corner on the quaint streets of Azabu-Juban is an adorable café politely reminding passersby to remember their daily dose of veggies in true Japanese fashion. The outdoor heating lamps allow for year-round outdoor seating and the menu offers a refreshingly extensive list of vegan options in a city that has yet to understand the concept. Indulge in the hearty taco bowl after a shopping spree in Roppongi Hills or before a night out in the neighbouring area’s filthy night clubs.
Eat More Greens ‑ 2-2-5 Azabu-Juban, Minato-ku, Tokyo
The most colourful building in Neal’s Yard is home to Wild Food Café, an almost entirely vegan restaurant serving a most memorable menu like their raw pizza made from sweet potato as well as the standard nut-based crust alongside an excellent selection of vegan wines.
Wild Food Café — 1st Floor 14 Neal’s Yard, Covent Graden, London WC2H 9DP
From the outside, this vegetarian haven looks like a standard Soho pub, but above the after-work ruckus is a speakeasy style restaurant serving veggie takes on classic British dishes like the drool-worthy Tofish & Chips.
Coach & Horses — 29 Greek St, London W1D 5DH
