Restaurants & Pubs Reviews

Unity Diner, London

Unity Diner is a vegan restaurant in London which is a must for anyone who loves fish & chips, but without the killing of fish part. Founded in September 2018, Unity Diner makes a difference in many ways. One of the friends who started this endeavour is vegan educator Earthling Ed. This is a for-profit business with a caveat though, as the profits are going into animal rights work, which includes a sanctuary opened in 2020.

Of course, the ethos is shown in everything they do because:
– staff uniforms & merchandise is ethically made, organic cotton, using chemical-free vegan ink
– takeaway containers & coffee cups are biodegradable
– any suitable food waste is donated to rescued animals

You can book a table from their website and check more about the sanctuary. I would highly suggest booking a table as when we went there there was no availability for walk-ins.

Now, let’s talk about food & drink.

piers morgan’s tears

This delicious cocktail is called: piers morgan’s tears – gin, pea flower tea, coconut liqueur, peach syrup, lime, tonic. Yes, it’s well worth getting and I imagine quite popular.

We ordered a few plates to share. All were amazingly delicious. I loved the tofish and I would gladly eat that again, which I will, as soon as I’m back in London.

  1. It’s amazing that the leftover food is given to animals. Food waste is a real problem so disposing of leftover food smartly is great. The waffles look really good!
    I hope you have a lovely and sunny Sunday Anca 🙂

    1. It’s the same with me. I didn’t like fish before, but now I love all the fake-fish. It’s strange, isn’t it? :))
