Liverpool has quickly established itself as a paradise for vegetarians and vegans with a wide range of restaurants serving up delicious meat-free dishes. This is somewhat of a recent phenomenon as many people have taken the plunge and ditched the meat.
Vegetarian cuisine is constantly evolving and in recent years restaurants have answered the calls for more choice when it comes to veggie food. Throughout the city, restaurants can regularly be found serving up thoughtful and creative dishes packed with bold flavours. Gone are the days of one of two meat-free options on the menu, the veggie and vegan revolution has arrived and we absolutely love it.
We guarantee that even the most carnivorous of people will be impressed by what the city has to offer when meat is off the menu. If cutting meat out completely seems like too much of a commitment, many of us are now adopting a life “flexitarianism”, opting to actively cut down on our meat intake due to the environmental impact of the worldwide meat industry.
So whether you’re veggie, vegan or flexitarian and you love eating out, check out some of our favourite spots in the city both new and old.
DOWN THE HATCH
Nestled underground on the bustling Duke Street, this restaurant is completely meat free and has attracted a lot of attention since opening its doors.
