About Veg Bar
About the restaurant
Dear diners, please be aware that the restaurant is currently closed for refurbishment. Thank you for understanding.
One of the fastest growing food trends in the UK is towards vegan and vegetarian dining and down in South London, they’re never ones to miss out on a trend. They’ve got a vegan restaurant in Brixton that is the envy of anywhere in the capital, in the form of Veg Bar on Tulse Hill, where they offer a huge range of meat and dairy free masterpieces that will astound even the non-vegan. Take a trip to Tulse Hill – that’ll be Herne Hill on the overground or Brixton on the tube – to try something truly unique in South London.
Life as a vegan can be tough. Checking packaging for traces of milk proteins, carefully explaining things to waiters, constantly fielding questions on what a vegan is from sneering, condescending, ignorant...where were we? One place you need not worry about such things is Veg Bar on Tulse Hill in Brixton, where the menu is entirely plant-based, with a huge range of international dishes that are all united in their eschewal of meat and dairy based products. If you’re south of the river, you have to pay them a visit to find out what all the fuss is about.
Often the choices for vegans can be a little bit samey – salads and lentils and soups – but at Veg Bar, they’ve got more than enough options to keep you coming back to Tulse Hill time and again. We’d plump for a Vietnamese salad to start, a raw dish with fresh herbs, crunchy veggies and lime vinaigrette, followed by seitan wings, “tofish” – tofu fish and chips – and a butternut squash and coconut curry with rice, poppadoms and chutney. We’ll leave the rest as a surprise for when you arrive at Veg Bar – take the train overground to Herne Hill and then stroll over in the direction of Brixton for one of the best vegan restaurants in South London. Do book in advance, however, lest they fill up and you miss out.
