It shouldn't be just the dairy-lovers that get their dip on come winter; vegans deserve to dunk too. Lucky for you plant-based dieters with a passion for all things melted, there's plenty of restaurants offering vegan fondue and raclette in London. From bold burger joints promising patties soaked in the stuff to chalet pop-ups offering gooey vats, we're rounding up all the best places to go.
Offering an even more epicurean take on the classic, this fabulously filthy stack from Burger & Beyond brings together a panko-crusted mushroom patty with caramelised onions, greens and smoked garlic mayo, then smothers the whole thing in ooey-gooey vegan raclette. We can confidently say it's not one for those who like to finish a meal with a clean shirt.
