Posted by 2 years ago | Permalink | Comments (10)

For the latest instalment in our series of vegan city guides, we head to the West Midlands to discover where compassionate Brummies go to find delicious meat-free food.

These are our top vegan picks in Britain’s second city:

The Warehouse Café

Fresh, local and seasonal ingredients take centre stage at this longstanding eco-veggie restaurant located right in the city centre. There are many tempting vegan options available and clearly labelled – the dessert menu even includes vegan trifle! For groceries, check out the 100% Vegan shop in the same building.


If you're over burgers and steaks and fancy a tasty vegetarian meal in Birmingham, head to Deepalis, one of the best vegetarian restaurants I know! Check out the new post 🙂 #thehalalplug #halalfoodblogger #halalfood #halalblogger #vegetarian #indiancuisine #indianfood #indian #halal #food

Cooking up authentic South Indian vegetarian food, Deepalis is an obvious stopping point for vegans exploring the famous Balti Triangle, whether you’re in search of a fragrant curry or classics such as masala dosa and idli sambhar.

Veg Out Café & Restaurant

LOVE this place!! 🍴

Light, healthy and organic – the food at this friendly King’s Heath vegetarian café ticks all the boxes.

Blue Ginger
Monday is vegan night at this Malaysian/Singaporean restaurant, with a full menu of unusual animal-free dishes, including tofu gado gado, rambutan and jackfruit red curry and bright green pandan crepes. If you can’t make it on Monday, the regular menu also caters to compassionate eaters.

Bodega Cantina
This popular restaurant serves laid-back South American food – just ask for the vegan menu, and you’ll be good to go! For added authenticity, wash down your meal with a cheeky margarita (or three).

Bistro 1847

Hazelnut crumble, almond cream, peach & thyme soup, with strawberries & flowers. First time ever having soup as dessert and it was incredible 😍❤️

A place to splash out, this is the kind of restaurant where the menu is full of items you may struggle to pronounce – but don’t let that put you off, since everything is seasonal, British and meat-free, with vegan options clearly labelled.

Mr Singh’s All Vegetarian Pizza

As you may have guessed from the name, the vegetarian menu at this Asian restaurant is a mock-meat extravaganza! Pick from a vast array of dishes such as sizzling veggie prawns and mock crispy duck pancakes.

Head here for superior coffee and a slap-up vegan breakfast.

Cherry Reds Cafe-Bar

Having a hearty vegan breakfast with some hearty vegans

Hearty vegan breakfasts and staples such as falafel burgers and vegan cakes are the name of the game at this down-to-earth café, with two branches in Kings Heath and City Centre.

Naturally Healthy Foods

This vegan grocery store in Digbeth is a great place to stock up on faux-meats, sweet treats, cruelty-free beauty products and much more. Their vegan goody bags also make great gifts.

Other vegan-friendly local businesses worth looking out for are plant-based street-food kiosk The Vegan Grindhouse and monthly pop-up restaurant Change Kitchen.

    Also try the vegan menu at Loco Lounge in Kings Heath. Fab falafel burger and fries, and plenty of tapas. Lovely family cafe atmosphere in the daytime and more lively bar feel at night. And scrabble boards… everyone loves scrabble.

    There’s also Wagamamas and Pizza Express 🙂

  • Teresa Wright commented on July 23, 2015 at 8:22 am

    Verdi lounge and Quinto lounge in Sutton Coldfield have both vegetarian and vegan options on their menu

    Canoodle who are at digbeth diner once a month (as well as other places) serve at least one, normally two or three, vegan dishes. Pan Asian so you will find Thai, Vietnamese etc. glass noodle salad with smoked tofu and roast squash is my current fave!

    Chennai Delights at 813 Stratford Road, B11 4DA serve many dishes which are Vegan complaint. South Birmingham’s 1st Authentic South Indian Restaurant.

    Below is a copy of emailed reply to my request from Bham City Council about the availablity of vegan food at the Xmas market which opened on 12/11/15.
    Dear Mally
    Thank you for your enquiry regarding availability of suitable Vegan food at our Christmas markets.
    I have contacted our stall holders for both the Frankfurt Christmas Market (Victoria Square and New Street) and the Christmas Craft Market (Centenary Square). Please not the following information:
    Frankfurt Christmas Market
    Stall number F92 all fries
    Stall number F76 Fried Onion (without sauce)
    Stall number F94 Fried Potatoes and Mushrooms (without sauce)
    Stall number F64 and F9 Roasted almonds (not all almonds are vegan, some contain chocolate or milk, for example. “Nutella-Almond”)
    German beer is almost always vegan, but there are a few exceptions. The mulled wine is based on normal wine, so strictly speaking it is not vegan, as it is clarified with gelatine.
    Christmas Craft Market
    Stall number C24 The Falafel is Vegan (but can be served with non-vegan items such as Halloumi)
    The wedges are also Vegan but they too have non vegan cheese options.
    All the menu is Vegetarian.
    I hope you find this useful and enjoy our Christmas Markets.

    Hope this helps anyone heading into the city centre up to Xmas. I only became vegan 6 months ago so will miss those chocolate bananas! (Had hoped the plain choc versons might be OK but as not on the list presume not).

    3 Three’s!! Recently opened amazing vegan cafe:)

  • Sheridan Rudge commented on July 29, 2016 at 7:29 am

    Went to the British Oak yesterday (28th July) and they’ve recently changed their menu.
    The only vegan options were the soup of the day and the bean burger. Was very disappointed!

  • Andrew Clark commented on November 11, 2016 at 8:23 pm

    Could you please update your website. Our vegan daughter is at university in Birmingham, having consulted your website we took her to the British Oak in Stirchley Birmingham. Unfortunately the pub has changed hands in February and they no longer have much of a Vegan/vegetarian menu. The beer is very good as is the food if you eat meat. They did do a bean burger and chips but the brioche bun contained egg. So my daughter had a bean burger ( no bun) & chips.

    • Ruby commented on November 14, 2016 at 1:15 pm

      Hi Andrew,
      Thanks for letting us know! Sorry you were disappointed with the vegan options there. We will update the page accordingly.
      Thanks again,
