As the number of people who have switched to a plant-based diet has grown massively over the past year, so has the number of restaurants which offer delicious vegan options. Here are the top venues that serve the best vegan food in Sheffield in summer 2021.
Icarus and Apollo is an internationally inspired street food vendor of unique and sustainable plant-based meals sourced as locally to our hometown of Sheffield as possible. They usually prepare their handheld food in their unique and colourful van. Furthermore, their food menu is quite diverse offering delicious food options from across the globe from Asia to Australia and many more. They are committed to using ingredients that are fresh as well as locally and ethically sourced. Sustainability is truly at the heart of what they do.
