Folkestone: A Vegetarian and Vegan Paradise Tucked Away in the U.K.
Fellow veggie beach lovers, I have found our paradise: Folkestone, England.
Take the train south from London, and in an hour, you can be indulging in vegan cheese cake at a pub quiz, or a full English breakfast with veggie sausage and halloumi instead of meat. Every restaurant has veggie options, and you’ll also find several vegetarian- and vegan-only restaurants, which is incredible considering this is a small town filled with people of ordinary means — we’re not Richie Rich’s, like up in the Big Smoke.
That’s right, I said ‘we.’ I randomly moved to Folkestone a few months ago, and this vegetarian splendor I’ve found myself in is too good not to share with you. Here are some of my favorite places.

Planet Earth Kitchen (PEK)
