There was a time when eating out was a game of chance for vegans. You’d always need a few spare snacks in your bag just in case you ended up in one of those restaurants that thought that you could ‘still eat chicken and fish’, despite explaining you were a vegan.
Luckily, as more people join the herbivore gang, restaurants and cafes have expanded their menus to include a range of meals that don’t contain any animal products at all. Here’s a selection of dishes you can happily eat on a day out at Victoria Leeds without a worry.
1. Pret a Manger has totally upped its vegetarian and vegan offerings and introduced a selection of dishes that feature vegetables as the main act. We’d recommend the Souper Tomato Soup, £3.45 or the Avocado & Chipotle Chickpeas Salad Wrap, £3.50.
2. For a breakfast or brunch-time bite, Le Pain Quotidien is a great option with its filling Gluten-free Organic Porridge, £4.25 (choose from Omega boost or stewed fruit), or its zingy Organic Crunola & Raspberry Parfait, £4.45.
3. Drop into the Harvey Nichols Espresso Bar for a coffee and a spot of vegan-friendly lunch. Try the Tabbouleh and Mixed Seeds Salad, £9, which contains plenty of fresh and flavoursome ingredients such as pomegranate, spring onion, tomato and mint.
