Special dietary requirements are no big deal at Southampton’s restaurants
People with allergies such as gluten or dairy frequently find it difficult when eating out, due to ingredients and allergen listings not being highlighted on menus. However, at restaurants in and around Southampton this simply is not the case. With menus clearly marked with allergens, eating out is a doddle no matter how specific your allergies or dietary requirements are. On the other hand, vegans and vegetarians very frequently lament the fact that menus only offer one suitable dish on their menus, and it’s usually an uninspiring mushroom risotto or boring vegetable pasta. Thankfully, at restaurants in Southampton, veganism and vegetarianism is both applauded and celebrated with dishes such as quinoa and squash burgers served with homemade sweet potato fries, vegan moussaka, paneer masala, and vegan fried chicken made from seitan on the menus.
