Are you in need of an Italian getaway and food that is the very definition of hedonism? Purezza is here to deliver that completely cruelty-free.

Founded in 2015 as the first vegan pizzeria in the UK, the menu covers all the bases of a good restaurant, taking you on a fully authentic vegan experience. Choose from a variety of starters, sourdough pizzas, sides, mains like calzone and lasagna, and indulgent desserts.

The domain of the starter section is Fermented Cheese Platter, featuring creamy cheese that was developed over two years in their laboratory.

If you are not a fan of cheese, you can choose from garlic bread, olives or crunchy fried peanuts.

The pizza selection is rich with ten flavours laid out on an authentic Italian dough resembling a cloud in its texture. You can choose from three bases: regular sourdough, hemp flour or gluten-free.

The pizza menu offers a variety of simple classics like the Margherita and complex flavours like the Parmigiana Party. The options feature fresh vegetables, seasonings, red, white and truffle bases and different cheese.

The toppings also include Italian plant-based meat like nduja, crumbled sausages, beetroot carpaccio and more. More than that, there’s mac and cheese, dough balls, salad and courgette spaghetti as sides.

The dessert menu brings together artisan Italian flavours like tiramisu and gelato with American favourites like cheesecake and brownie.

Mildreds is not only one of London’s first restaurants to serve plant-based options (since 1988), but also the perfect place for breakfast and brunch lovers.

It might be labelled as a vegetarian and vegan restaurant, but the menu is not short of vegan meals. Everything on the menu that doesn’t have the ‘NV’ (not vegan) label next to it is safe to enjoy.

First things first: breakfast. If you are one of those who believe that it is the most important meal of the day, breakfast at Mildreds won’t disappoint. Choose from tofu egg salad, aubergine bacon, muffins, banana bread or granola. You can also go for a hot drink with either oat, almond or coconut milk.

If you are not an early riser, they’ve got you covered with brunch served during the weekends. Scrambled tofu, fried veggies, avocadoes, vegan feta and sourdough toast are definitely on the menu.

All-day menu has everything from starters through burgers, and mains to desserts. Starters selection offers all the vegan favourites like hummus, arancini and gyoza dumplings, and more.

Burgers include different patties like chicken, black bean or a variation of Chinese fusion in the form of mock duck. Extra vegan cheese and chips on the side are also an option.

The mains will take you on a journey through the flavours of Sri Lanka and different parts of Asia. Choose from kebabs, a curry, stir-fry or soul bowl.

Desserts explore flavours of caramel, chocolate, peanuts and fresh fruits like lemon with coconut or limoncello with elderflower truffles.

As the name tells you, this “vegan AF American diner” is the ideal place for vegans looking for “dirty” junk food experience in Camden.

The mains consist of burgers, a Reuben sandwich with seitan pastrami, hot dogs and Caeser salad. 

As a part of the fully vegan experience, you can choose from three burgers featuring different patties like beef and seitan chicken.

The burgers are improved by dreamy vegan toppings and sauces. The offerings include bacon, cheese, pickles and signature blue cheese sauce.

The best word to sum up the plant-based sides at Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner is cheese. Mac and cheese in two sizes, mozzarella sticks, cheesy and dirty fries are only a fraction of the selection. You can also opt for wings, chilli bowls and coleslaw.

It wouldn’t be a proper American experience without milkshakes. There are seven options, exploring classics like vanilla and chocolate as well as new combinations such as banana Biscoff, chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and peppermint.
