Today National Vegetarian Week begins and you are invited to try out vegan or vegetarian dishes at the restaurants in the Vittoria Group.

Vegan Fish and Chips

Fancy Vegan Fish and Chips? Head to Bertie’s on Victoria Street where a thick slice of aubergine wrapped in seaweed and deep fried in batter will be served with twice cooked chips and vegan tartare sauce.

Fire and Smoke Pizza

At La Favorita on Leith Walk Fire and Smoke Pizza features on the menu with peppers, mozzarella, green olives, red onion, jalapeños, red chilli peppers and gorgonzola all set on a tomato base and topped with rocket and parmesan.

Vittoria Group Chairman, Tony Crolla said: 
“Within our restaurants, we are seeing an increase with veganism, vegetarianism and people just looking to widen their own food experience with meat free meals. These dishes we have introduced are not only available for National Vegetarian Week but will be a firm fixture on our menus and hopefully position our restaurants amongst Edinburgh’s most vegetarian-friendly eateries.”

At the newly refurbished Vittoria on the Bridge and the Italian restaurant groups neighbourhood site, Vittoria on the Walk guests can dig into a Stuffed Vegan Aubergine – Half Aubergine filled with confit aubergine, tomato, pepper & olives & glazed with vegan cheese on a bed of cherry tomato sauce & french beans.
