The food here is entirely vegan, and super-healthy – it’s never deep-fried or microwaved. And it’s delicious, too. Take the seitan stroganoff, for example, a mixture of “seitan strips, caramelised onions, fresh herbs, and pepper cubes in cashew cream”.

Nearest station: West Brompton

2. Mildreds

 

Mildreds is a Soho institution for a reason. It doesn’t take bookings, though, so you might have to wait a little while for a table.

Nearest station: Piccadilly Circus

3. Bonnington Café
