Vegan Eats in Turin (Torino) 2017

29th April 2017

When we first visited Turin in 2014 we instantly adored the culture and cuisine; and featured Five Vegan Eats in Turin along with a post on Vegan-Friendly Gelaterias in Turin. Upon our return in April 2017 we renewed our love for this city. While some of the restaurants and shops we previously frequented have closed, overall there are more vegan options in the city now. Turin remains a favorite of ours; it’s authentic, progressive, unpretentious and the people have a genuine passion for their food.

Highlights from our trip to Turin include artisanal vegan pastries at Ratatouille and a deftly prepared dinner in unfussy surroundings at Soul Kitchen. Beyond the five vegan-friendly restaurants we mention, there is a city brimming with vegan options.

Turin: Flower Burger

Italian vegan burger chain started in Milan in 2015 and quickly expanded to Rome, Monza and Turin. Straightforward menu with burgers, potato wedges, desserts and drinks. Charcoal, turmeric and 7-grain buns add a bit of flair – during our visit they also had a limited edition cherry bun. Burger patty options include chickpea, seitan and lentil. A variety of discounts are posted; including 20% off every Monday for Meatless Monday. Convenient stop if you’re craving a vegan burger. Bonus, they’re open on Sundays and most holidays.

Turin: Mezzaluna

Just off the Porta Palazzo market, the casual and exclusively vegan deli counter at Mezzaluna offers fast, simple options for dine in or takeaway throughout the day. In the back is a modest vegan grocery store (with a small, labeled, section of non-vegan vegetarian items). The dinner menu excels at well seasoned and comforting local dishes, with the occasional international inspiration or unique ingredient thrown in. Mezzaluna is a consistent and reliable vegan option in Turin and their dinner service is satisfying and unpretentious.
