Hi guys! I’m back with another post about my weekend in Glasgow – and this time it’s all about the food. Glasgow is sometimes called the vegan capital of the UK so I certainly had high expectations and it definitely lived up to them.
100% Vegan Restaurants/Bars
A gorgeous cafe with an organic menu and a focus on sustainability. The food is amazing – we had the spicy bean wrap, cashew cream cheese bagel, raw chocolate orange cheesecake and chocolate caramel cake. Everything tasted fresh and wholesome, and the coffee is great too.
A 100% vegan bar and kitchen in the West End. The garlic bread and spaghetti carbonara were gorgeous and very reasonably priced.
A small fast food joint with an impressively extensive menu given it’s size; there’s only a few tables. The presentation of the food may not be quite as ‘Instagram-friendly’ as other places but it is delicious. I had the Hawaii Vacation burger (is pineapple on a burger as controversial as on pizza?), a massive flat white and a brownie. Plus it’s great for people watching.
Places With Vegan Options
I got to try my first ever vegan haggis, which was really nice. I also had the sticky toffee pudding and an espresso martini, which were amazing. It was probably the best espresso martini I’ve ever had!
Having tried both Mono and 13th Note on the Saturday and finding them both fully booked, it it definitely advisable to ring up and book on busy nights. On Sunday it was really quiet! Nearly everything is vegan, vegetarian options are marked.
Not fully vegan or veggie but loads of really good options, including the vegan breakfasts and cakes – the cinnamon bun was incredible! Perfect for the train home.
By far the nicest coffee! We ended up going three times, which says a lot for a four day trip. We even bought some beans to take home. You could even do what we did and get it to takeaway before the walking tour. The cakes are really good as well.
Whilst not exclusive to Glasgow I don’t have one near me so still exciting. We got a hot chocolate each to warm up- we chose hazelnut (of course) and 70% dark. They have loads of vegan options as long as you get plant milk.
The Ones I Want To Try Next Time! (All 100% vegan!)
Sadly we didn’t get to try everywhere on my list! These places all looked incredible;
Have you been to any of these places? Are there any amazing vegan places I missed? Let me know!
