With consumer demand for special dietary meals now being higher than ever before, big names in the food and drink industry have had to adapt their menus to meet customer demand. Food establishments are now used to providing dairy-free, meat-free and egg-free dishes for their customers with food aversions and intolerances. This is fantastic news for vegans everywhere, as we can now eat out at almost any popular food chain without hassle. Read on for more as we outline 4 Top Vegan-Friendly UK Food Chains!
As of 2016, Zizzi’s have introduced a fabulously extensive vegan menu. In fact whether you go to the restaurant or browse online, there is a completely separate vegan menu which makes life a whole lot easier. Zizzi’s offer a wide range of vegan main dishes from pasta to pizza (they even have vegan cheese), with sides like fries and garlic bread and even a dessert menu with the option of ice-cream, gelato or calzone!
2) Las Iguanas
Las Iguanas are currently top of the scoreboard when it comes to pleasing their vegan customers. Not only do they have a separate vegan menu, but they are also currently doing a 2 for 1 offer on all vegan mains in aid of veganuary! Vegan dishes available include tapas, fajitas, salads and veggie chilli. They also have a choice of a refreshing sorbet or creamy coconut pudding for dessert.
