Mela

Traditional Indian takeaway treats that you thought you would have to wave goodbye to after going vegan are back on the menu at Mela in Montpelier.

Tuk Tuck

In the city centre you’ll find Tuk Tuck offering colourful and fresh Korean, Japanese and Thai street food that caters for all. This relaxed café offers great value for money, with big portion sizes and low prices.

Their kimchi fries are an amazing fusion dish which can be made vegan on request with Vietnamese pickles, Sriracha sauce, grilled mushrooms and fried tofu. Their bibimbap is also a winner.

Eat a Pitta

A Bristol favourite for veggies and meat eaters alike; luckily for us all they’re dotted around the city at St Nicholas Market, Gloucester Road, Broadmead and the Triangle on Queens Road.

Pick up falafel in a salad box from one of their stalls for a super filling rainbow of flavours, and with a fully vegan menu (minus the tahini) you can order it all. It’s been argued they make the best falafel in Bristol.

Chilli Daddy

Chilli Daddy was the first Szechuan street food stall in the UK, and the team have won a range of awards for their authentic Chinese food.

Great for lovers of spice, their stall in St Nicholas Market is perfect for lunch when you’re out and about exploring. They also have restaurants on nearby Baldwin Street and Queens Road in Clifton.

Biblos

You may have seen Biblos serving up delicious wraps at festivals this summer, but you can get their full menu all year round at their restaurant in Stokes Croft. A great place to get some mezze and share with friends, or just order one of their huge wraps all to yourself!

Their menu isn’t exclusively vegetarian so meat-eating friends will be happy grabbing a bite to eat here too. You can also bring your own drinks, so it’s a good option for a cheap meal out.
