Edinburgh Vegan Guide

As you wander through Edinburgh’s Old Town, with its medieval architecture and mysterious closes, or explore the elegant Georgian New Town with its neoclassical grace, you’ll discover that the city’s vegan offerings are as diverse and intriguing as its landscapes. Edinburgh, a city renowned for its literary heritage and vibrant festivals, now also boasts an impressive array of vegan eateries that seamlessly blend Scottish and British culinary traditions with the ethos of plant-based eating.

The traditional Scottish fare, known for its hearty and rustic flavors, might initially seem challenging to reinterpret into vegan delights. Yet, Edinburgh’s innovative chefs have risen to the occasion, creating vegan versions of haggis, neeps, and tatties that rival their meat-based counterparts in both flavor and comfort. The British classic, fish and chips, has also been reimagined with banana blossoms or tofu, offering a cruelty-free alternative to this crispy, golden delight, complete with mushy peas and tartar sauce.
