It shouldn't be just the dairy-lovers that get their dip on come winter, vegans deserve to dunk too. Lucky for all you plant-based dieters with a passion for the melty stuff, there's plenty of restaurants offering vegan fondue and raclette in London. From bold burger joints promising patties soaked in the stuff, to the rooftop spot bringing you one of the highlights of Veganuary, we're rounding up all the best places to get a little gooey.
Offering an even more epicurean take on the classic raclette, this fabulously filthy stack from Burger & Beyond brings together a panko-crusted mushroom patty with caramelised onions, greens and smoked garlic mayo and then smothers the whole thing in ooey-gooey vegan cheese. We can confidently say it's not one for those who like to finish a meal with a clean shirt.
The only dish anyone wanted to be warming up with in January, The Rooftop St James' vegan fondue was arguably the only good thing to come out of 2020. As well as the steaming pots of plant-based cheese, crusty bread and fried mushrooms, the Trafalgar Square rooftop restaurant pairs the dish with flutes of Veuve Cliquot and some of the best views in London. Fingers crossed it returns this year.
A must-visit vegan restaurant in London, West Kensington eatery 222 runs a menu of health-focused and 100% plant-based plates. Alongside seitan stroganoffs and organic house wines you'll find a devilishly delicious vegan raclette comprised of roast potatoes and sautéed oyster mushrooms covered in spinach and tofu cottage cheese and a rich and creamy sauce.
