A Cambridge-based vegan restaurant, now in London.

After causing a very positive plant-based stir in Cambridge, vegan restaurant Stem + Glory has found its way to London, settling into a tucked-away backstreet by the Barbican. Interiors are chic and modern, just like the menu, which caters to every conceivable meal you can think of with a combination of classic vegan dishes and creative nods to current trends.

Off the all-day menu, the Spanish-style ‘meatballs’ in tomato sauce were peppery and moreish, while the tacos with pulled jackfruit were well thought-out and hit the spot. But the highlight of the night was the roasted aubergine with chermoula (a rich, herby sauce). Full-flavoured and perfectly cooked, it had citrus notes of pomegranate and lime that beautifully cut through the natural creaminess of the veg.

The only real low-point was the slight lack of atmosphere, even on our Friday evening visit. Presumably this had something to do with the hidden-away location, because the food, though slightly upmarket, was worth the price. If you’re bored of vegan cooking that’s just burgers and faux cheese, seek out S+G.There’s definitely room in London’s vegan scene for a creative spot like this.
