If you’re going to the Fringe this year and looking for some cruelty free grub between shows – then check out these top eateries:
Bonus points for sporting a name that sounds like a dodgy massage parlour. Paradise Palms serve up gut busting Black Bean and Seitan burgers, hot dogs that come with onion rings you’ll be dreaming about and they even make their own ketchup.
Novapizza has long had a great reputation in the city and they’ve recently expanded to Glasgow too – long may the cross pollination continue. Cheesy, salty pizza just right for lifting your spirits after the inevitable deluge of rain ruins your lovely new festival haircut.
The Auld Hoose
Have you tried their mountainous nachos yet? Do it and do it when you’re hungry. The biggest and best nachos in Scotland, hands down. They also do decent burgers and hotdogs if nachos aren’t your thing, weirdo.
Pret A Manger
Ok it’s a massive chain and you’ve heard some rumours about McDonald’s being involved somewhere along the line but their Super Greens and Reds sandwich is an old faithful and they definitely deserve some kudos for their efforts to bring easy veganism to the masses.
They’ve been at it a while and it shows. Edinburgh’s original veggie restaurant definitely knows what it’s doing. All bases are covered, the breakfast is perfect for soaking up last night’s booze without sending you back to sleep and they’ve always loads of healthy salads if you’re into that kind of thing.
Brought to you by the folks behind Mono, Stereo and Flying Duck, Glasgow’s classic vegan joints. Harmonium is a newbie to the Edinburgh vegan scene. We’ve not made it down yet but Mono’s head chef is in charge of the menu so there’s no doubting it will be awesome. The French sourdough toast topped with Sgaia Mheat bacon, maple syrup and blackberries looks the business and currently sits at the top of the To-Do list.
