Halo’s key focus is around the Beyond Burger - the plant-based patty made from pea protein that does its level best to taste as close to a fresh beef burger as possible. They also have a crispy katsu burger that they created alongside Nanban’s Tim Anderson and their pink salt fries are very good indeed.

MildredsMildreds

Where: Shoreditch and Brixton

The doyenne of veggie food in London has been around since the Eighties (their first cafe in Soho took over a former sex club). Now to be found in less racy premises in Camden, King’s Cross and Dalston, their food is still exciting vegetarians. They’re serving up a truncated menu for their lockdown offering. Highlights include Sri Lankan Sweet Potato Curry, Char Sui tofu bowl and chocolate pistachio brownies for dessert.

Vegan YesVegan Yes

Where: Brick Lane

This Brick Lane based restaurant has created an ultra-niche in the Korean-Italian vegan fusion food it serves up. Kimchi is a key ingredient - find it on top of steamed rice, in a tofu pocket, with udon noodles and in lasagne. We’re intrigued by the sound of their Toppognocchi which is a combo of Korean rice sticks with gnocchi served up with tomato sauce and gochujang.

How to order: Via Deliveroo.
