Vegan or Vegetarian Fare near Shoreditch or Tate Modern?

Looking for no-nonsense Vegan or Vegetarian fare in London. Nothing spicy that would cause heartburn. Thank you.

Hi Pepper von snoot, I haven't been to London yet but I will be going later this year and plan on using the 'Happy Cow' app,
on which members list and recommend vegetarian and vegan restaurants/shops/cafes it's also a website and you can look
through the London listings on there. On the app you can click to find restaurants that are the nearest to your present location too!

Just a thought if no one can recommend a specific place!

Borough Market is a 12 minute walk from the Tate Modern where surely there must be some grazing stands.

Besides Borough Market, there are good restaurants right IN Tate Modern that will have veg/vegan options.

Spitalfields market is close to Shoreditch and has plenty of vegan and vegetarian options.

Not close at all to Shoreditch, but Farmacy in Notting Hill is pretty good.
You could also try Comptoir Libanais - it's a Middle Eastern chain, with plenty of vegetarian options on the menu.
And Spitalfields market as mentioned.

The ubiquitous Pret a Manger has some vegetarian and vegan options, check their website. Useful for lunch.

Is Farmacy in Notting Hill Damien Hirst's old Pharmacy? That would be so funny if it were.

Thank you. I did plan on eating inside the Tate Modern.

No it's a different restaurant; this one is on Westbourne Grove, owned by Mohamed al Fayed's daughter. It's a very smart place, full of local yoga mums.
I can't quite see Damien Hirst running a vegan restaurant, somehow

I had dinner with Damien Hirst (and others) at the Groucho Club years ago. A Vegan Hirst restaurant wouldn't surprise me at all.

most places will have a mix of both, you are visiting civilisation after all

Redemption on Old Street, short walk from Ace Hotel, is very popular - just look for the wings.

My cod at the Tate Modern. My wine was one from the Basque region and was excellent.
