More and more of us are trying our hand at being vegan with Veganuary becoming just as popular as Dry January. With another lockdown in place, we’re sadly not able to head into the city centre to discover some of the best hidden vegan gems. But fear not, most of them are open for delivery which makes your Veganuary in Leeds that bit easier.
Here are the best restaurants to order from if you’re giving veganism a go.
Humpit, the Corn Exchange, Leeds
Name a better duo than hummus and pita bread – we’ll wait.
Hummus is having a bit of a moment lately and is only growing more popular. Its’ a great snack but also makes a filling meal when paired with some extra bits and pieces. The best bit, of course, is that it’s totally vegan.
Humpit in the Corn Exchange is your one-stop-shop for all things hummus. Their menu is surprisingly big and features smaller snacks to bigger dishes. You can even order meal deals, such as the meal for one which includes a warm filled pita with hummus, salad, pickles, fries and a drink.
Humpit is currently taking deliveries on Deliveroo to make your lockdown vegan lunches that bit better.
Little Tokyo, Central Road, Leeds
