10 Non-Vegan Restaurants in Nottingham with Wicked Vegan Options

28 May 18 words: Ash Carter

It’s fair to say that traipsing through town trying to find somewhere decent to eat with a vegan can be frustrating. Although Notts has more than its fair share of places that cater exclusively for non-meat eaters, here’s a rundown of the restaurants you might not expect to have decent vegan options...

Location: Barker Gate
Type of food: Indian
Arguably the best Indian food in Notts, Anoki is everything you want from a restaurant; a beautiful setting, friendly staff and ridiculously tasty grub. Vegans can enjoy a saag aloo or tarkha dhal, mushroom rice and a roti, as well an obscene amount of poppadoms to kick it all off.

Tarn Thai
Location: George Street
Type of food: Thai
It might get a bit pricey in the evening, but vegans are spoilt for choice with the two-course £10.95 lunchtime menu. Start with either spring rolls or satay pak mixed vegetables, and follow it up with the stir-fried tofu with basil, chilli and garlic. They even chuck in coffee. Boom.

Oscar & Rosie’s
Location: Stoney Street
Type of food: Pizza
Not only the best pizza in the city, but they also have an entire menu for vegans, so you’re not stuck making do with a cheeseless catastrophe. It doesn’t come better than their Boom Chick-ish Wah Wah; a fourteen-inch masterpiece of vegan chicken, fakon, caramelised onion, mushrooms and vegan cheese.

Location: Thurland Street
Type of food: Greek
Another restaurant with a cracking lunchtime menu, Yamas’s tapas selection is summat to behold. As well as the standard hummus, olives and pita bread, vegan options include their amazing patatas bravas, gigantes beans, lemon rice and a panzanella salad, all served by some of the best staff in the city.

Location: Chapel Bar
Type of food: Sushi
Sushi restaurants generally have great vegan options; but Sushimania’s all-you-can-eat for £16.80 is borderline theft. Vegans can eat themselves into a sushi coma with their amazing tofu pouches, avocado, asparagus or cucumber maki, agedashi tofu, sweet potato or vegetable tempura, teriyaki tofu steak and vegetable spring rolls.

The Angel Microbrewery
Location: Stoney Street
Type of food: Pub grub
If Asian restaurants are the easiest for vegans to eat in, the traditional British pub is doubtlessly the hardest, unless you’re content with a bowl of chips. That’s what makes The Angel such a rare treat, especially their standout vegan dish of fish (tempeh), chips and peas.

Las Iguanas
Location: Chapel Bar
Type of food: Latin/Mexican
Start things off with Holy Guacamole, which you get to mix and season yourself at the table. Follow it up with a moqueca de palmitos curry, and finish with a refreshing mango sorbet. You can even wash it down with a couple of two-for-one caipirinhas if the mood teks you.

Annie’s Burger Shack
Location: Lace Market
Type of food: Burgers
What’s better than a restaurant that offers a few vegan options? One that offers everything as a vegan option, of course. Both Annie’s breakfast and regular burger menu feature an embarrassment of riches for vegans, and you can even get a vegan milkshake to accompany your mountain of snap. Shameless.

Type of food:
This one’s just about to open and we’re proper excited for it. Think Indian street food and a bit of craft beer, all in the depths of Hockley. From okra fries to bhel puri and pani puri, you’re bound to find summat to enjoy on the menu if you’re meatlessly inclined.

: Long Row
Type of food: Doughnuts
Already had your fill of savoury goods and want to finish off with a little something-sweet? There really aren’t many better vegan options than Doughnotts. Their classic vegan glazed and vegan jam doughnuts are firm favourites, but their vegan Chocolate Oreo is on another planet entirely.
