The moment anyone exits Camden Town tube station, and the cataclysmic scents of the food traders hit you, it becomes apparent that you’ve arrived in a place that’s ideal for food exploration.

Drawing inspiration from international cuisine, and with a knack for innovative food concepts, their menu has spectacular burgers that lovers of food, whatever their dietary preferences, will swoon over!
2. Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner
In a nutshell: American comfort food, turned vegan! Conveniently situated at North Yard, it has even moved to a more spacious location to accommodate the high inflow of hungry guests. Their mac ’n’ cheese, Reuben Sandwich and luscious burgers are winners, and have managed to build up quite the hype for this newly established (2018) Camden Market corner!
Vegan Pizza? Yes, just tell us where to run to! Purezza, founded in 2015, established itself as the first vegan pizzeria in the UK, and has evolved since then to include an incredible variety of tastes. Vegan sourdough pizzas, gluten free food, pasta and desserts are among the scrumptious options on Purezza’s menu, and their dedication to cruelty free ingredients and traditional alternatives has definitely put them on the vegan foodie’s map!
4. Temple of Camden
Meat-free “fried-chicken” is their specialty, served with delicious vegan sides and in all shapes and sizes! Their burgers are also otherworldly, and thankfully, they decided to bring all these delicious options closer to us, just a stone’s throw away from Mornington Crescent Tube station. Oh! We should not forget to highlight the facon – aka: fake bacon option, that’s just the cherry on top!
5. Young Vegan Pies
“Pie and mash” is as Brit a dish as they get, and Young Vegans is taking the concept to a whole new level. Expect imaginative recipes, including Vegan Chicken Katsu Curry Pie, Vegan Steak and Ale Pie and The Aussie Pie… Their selection of sides and desserts complements perfectly the list of pies.
