The best thing about this dive bar on Smithdown road – asides from their huge selection of craft beers – is the fully vegan menu. Seitan burgers, nachos, fries and more are all on offer as well as a big vegan breakkie from 12pm-3pm on weekends.

CAN Waterloo is the first plastic-free, plant-based restaurant in Merseyside. It’s a family run business, with husband and wife Ryan and Louise manning the fort. They set the place up after finding there was a distinct lack of businesses in the area who catered to a vegan, plastic-free lifestyle. They work with the best local vegan chefs and suppliers to bring their customers dishes like vegan ‘Fried Chicken’ sandwiches from Peaberry Coffeehouse as well as vegan Savoury Pies by The Gluten-Free Pie Company.

It wouldn’t be a vegan guide to Liverpool without veggie-junk food pioneers Down the Hatch. They’ve got a fully vegan menu that will make all of your veggie junk dreams come true. Highlights include their vegan Doner Kebab, Buffalo Cauliflower Hot ‘Wings’ and even vegan Tiramisu. To be honest, the whole menu is a highlight.

This not-for-profit vegan café opens once a week on Saturday afternoons. Social dining and community are at the epicentre of what makes this place so special. It’s based in the basement of fantastic bookshop News from Nowhere, and the menu suggests donations, not prices. Here you can grab yourself some sustainable food whilst you pay towards a good cause.

Although they serve meat and dairy, Salt House Tapas have an entirely separate vegan menu. You can keep it traditional with Padron Peppers and Patatas Bravas or go for something a bit more out there like the Gnocchi with Chimichurri sauce and Courgettes. Truly delicious.

Walk into either one of the Mowgli restaurants and you’ll be able to smell why people rave about this place. Their freshly cooked, homegrown Indian street food offering is impressive, and their separate vegan menu features some real showstoppers. The Holy Chow is tasty and filling, featuring a heady chickpea and potato curry served in a hollowed loaf of bread. Get some Rhubarb Dahl and Calcutta Tangled Greens on the side and you’ll be on to a winner!

Sanskruti

Ormond/Bixteth Street Corner

We recommend heading to Sanskruti on a Tuesday or Wednesday for some delicious vegan Thali. It’s a large platter which plays host to a wide variety of starters, mains, sides and desserts with the dishes changing each week. Their Jackfruit Curry is also a dish that should be on your list to try – it fools most meat eaters! It’s all cooked to order and rivals Mowgli in the battle for the best Indian restaurant in town.
