Vegan in Edinburgh: Haggis, Nachos, Burgers

Looking for delicious comfort vegan food in Edinburgh, Scotland? Here are some of my favs.

First up: vegan haggis! Had to be done. Also came with tatties (potatoes) and neeps (turnips). It's the quintessential dish of Scotland. Also quite tasty! And, you're not going to NOT eat a giant plate of vegan nachos, are you? I didn't think so. This one was full of melty cheese throughout, plus beans, jalepenos, more cheese and guacomole on top. Huge, filling, delicious. Perfect with beers. Find these bar food goodies at The Auld Hoose. Huge whisky selection, too.

When I discovered that there was actually a vegan restaurant, I simply had to check it out. Henderson's has several locations but one that is 100% all vegan! And when I see a vegan burger, I have to get it.


This was probably the largest (or tallest) one I've had yet. But I devoured it into a complete mess. I loved the huge side of house-made vegan mayonnaise that it came with. And the delicious red cabbage coleslaw was perfect.

They also did a spicy veggie and bean crepe with mozzarella cheese on top, chutney on the side, plus a balsamic vinaigrette salad. Don't forget the vegan organic porter to wash it all down with!

Last but not least, I just happened across this delicious piece of vegan chocolate cake at a local coffee shop called Loudon's Cafe and Bakery. Their light, fluffy, moist, dark chocolate cake was the perfect compliment to the equally delectable soy latte they quite artfully crafted.


Yum, Edinburgh, yum.
