The Power of Plants

"When we started LEON restaurants in 2004 we wanted to make vegetables taste good. Some people thought that made us a little bit alternative. But now everyone agrees: eating more plants is good for us and good for the planet."

The LEON January menu

We think that plants have spent enough time on the side of our plates and deserve a moment in the spotlight. It’s time for a bit of veg-ucation. The wise words of Michael Pollan summarised in 3 neat sentences what we’re talking about; ‘Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Plants are powerful. That’s why we’ve celebrated them since 2004. Packing more plants and flavours than ever into our dishes this January, we’ve created a colourful and flavourful menu that will leave your gut jumping for joy and your taste buds craving more.

With this in mind, we’d like to introduce you our new menu that celebrates the ‘Power of Plants’. You’ll see some brand new dishes, the return of some old favourites and existing best sellers with a spotlight shining down on the plants hidden within.

Say hello to our new plant-iful hero dishes

Sweet Potato Falafel Wrap

Add in pink kraut and crunchy cos lettuce and we’ve created a vegan dish with 12 varieties of plants, that will leave your taste buds tinglinggg and your gut health zinginggg.

The LEON Rainbow of drinks

Earthy beetroot gives that natural but vibrant pink colour to our new Pink Latte, that’s paired with the perfect sweet note of vanilla for balance baby.

You’ll definitely also want to make room for matcha, filled with antioxidants and sweetened with vanilla, it's making a powerful return.
