The Chains


Christopher Place Shopping Centre, St Albans

The Wagamama vegan menu has been designed around the idea that meat free shouldn’t mean taste free. For lovers of Japanese food, they have a wide range of dishes and vegan alternatives, such as their mushrooms & panko aubergine steamed buns, yasai pad thai and their famous vegatsu curry.



19-23 Chequer St, St Albans

Nandos have a range of vegan menu options and substitutions, all the way through from starters to desserts. Try their veggie burgers or the supergrain salad, with a range of sides such as dairy-free garlic bread, chargrilled veg or peri-salted chips.

Their delicious pizza toppings include roasted red onions, butternut squash and smoked chilli jelly, with pasta dishes also available. What really stands out are their desserts – sticky chocolate and praline torte and a range of seasonal specials.
