Here are a few suggestions that any potential customer can confirm in the belief that it is worth looking into these places because of this type of vegan food in Wroclaw.

The first suggestion is food at the Żyzna restaurant on Nożownicza 37 Street in Wrocław. This is a top of the class vegetable bistro- let’s try to imagine that. The cousine surprises even more with creative, inspiring and refined meals in the smallest detail. Every two weeks you can find seasonal dishes with the best ingredients. In the menu you can find: marinated watermelon (in summer); dumplings with plums, thyme and tofu (in autumn) and steaks of celery and potato puree (in winter). This is one of the most unique places in Wroclaw and even all over Poland. The only drawback is better to come to Żyzna ealier or before coming to call, because in the evening there may not be all the dishes. It presents that the local food is delicious and also fresh.

Another but also strong suggestion is Wilk Syty on Trzebnicka 3 we Wrocławiu. This is a newly created place. In a short time thousands of Wroclawians became addicted to each other. Here you will find classic dishes that have been vegan and then flavored with an amazing imagination’s staff. It’s a great place for dinner with parents.

The local dishes from seitan are Wroclaw export: vegan bacon, meatballs, burgers, and even greaves on potato dumplings.In spite of meals, customers can eat here some of the best vegan cakes in Poland – a rolling poppy seed cake with meringue.

Vegan food in Wroclaw

The last proposition is Vega Restaurant which is located on Rynek 27a we Wrocławiu. This place can not be missing in any vegan guide around Wroclaw and should be heard about it all over Poland. This is the oldest vegetarian bar in Poland, which has been operating since 1987 in the middle of the Town Hall in Wroclaw! As if these attractions were not enough, VEGA changed the decoration four years ago and became a completely vegan place and still feeds just as well. At lunchtime you can see a lot of workers and employees of the Town Hall, who come to visit. The menu on the ground floor is close to grandma’s dinners and also traditional cuisine of milk bars.There are also meaty soups, salads and compote on the menu.
