Vegan Food at Southbank Centre Food Market
London has been experiencing an intense heatwave of late, and as much as I've moaned and groaned about it (why are we never satisfied with the weather?) I can't deny that summer is my favourite time of the year. The city is more alive than ever, moods are lifted, even food seems brighter, tastier and more indulgent.
If you're after a fix of bright, tasty and indulgent vegan food, head over to the Southbank Centre food market and you will not be disappointed. I arrived hungry on a sunny Friday afternoon and I'm not ashamed to admit that I was on the verge of eating my way through the entire market...Thankfully, as the old saying goes, my eyes were much bigger than my stomach. Still managed to try a fair bit though, including an insanely delicious burger from Big V London, corn on the cob (freshly roasted and sprinkled with five-spice...yum!) and the most delectable slice of salted caramel cake by Choco Fruit. If you go and you've got room for more, you'll maybe want to pick up some sweet or savoury vegan crepes, vegan Thai or Indian food, or maybe a plate of injera with veggie sides from vegan Ethiopian food vendor Ethiopiques.
If you're up for exploring more markets around London, be inspired by my vegan-centric posts on Brick Lane market, Hackney Downs Vegan Market and Portobello Road (see below).
