More about The Calabash of Culture, London

Vegan cuisine is a food trend that continues to grow and grow within foodie circles, and down in the South London suburb of Sydenham – on Sydenham Road, and right by Sydenham station – you can have your fill of meat and dairy-free cooking at The Calabash of Culture. Their restaurant is a separate section of their all-natural vegan shop, and their menu takes in all the international influences that are brought to bear on vegan food.

Veganism is huge in India, and at The Calabash of Culture, diners can pick the classic Indian dishes of dhal and vegetable curry, whereas South London visitors who expect a more Caribbean twist are about to try the Chickpea and Callaloo. Sydenham Road in Sydenham is easily reached from central London and vegans and non-vegans alike could do a lot worse than jumping the train down south for a high-quality, healthy meal. Reserve a table in advance to see what’s in store at this popular vegan restaurant.

We had a lovely table by the window. The food was delicious and although the Vegan Glory wasn't on the menu for puddings, they made it for us. Second time I've been to this restaurant and it's well worth the long bus ride to get there. Excellent and I'm not even a Vegan.
