It's really easy to be vegetarian and vegan in London. Restaurants all have at least a vegetarian option, if not a vegan one. You can even find vegan snacks in convenience stores. If you're on the go, you can pop into many of these shops (or a Pret a Manger--big chain of sandwich shops) and find a hummus salad sandwich. Holland & Barret is a big chain of health food/ vitamin shops. You can find them all over the place, along with many independent health food shops. Indian restaurants are a good option, but vegans should beware of ghee. Many of the big curry houses use it in abundance and don't offer an alternative. All the major supermarkets have health food and "free from" sections. Sainsbury's carries quite a selection of vegan cookies/biscuits. They also label all of their brand items as suitable for vegetarians or vegans. One of my favorite veggie places is the Chi Vegan Noodle bar on St. Martin's Lane. It's only 6 quid for an all you can eat buffet. Cheaper at lunch, and it's only 3.50 for takeaway.
