An Aberdeen restaurant has been named as one of the top restaurants for a vegan Christmas dinner.

Musa on Aberdeen’s Exchange Street has been included on the list by animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

The eatery’s festive menu includes a split pea soup to start and a sweet potato and hazelnut croquette served with pumpkin and paprika puree, chestnut, cranberry and cabbage for the main course.

Dessert includes a dark chocolate and kirsch cherry brownie with orange and clementine sorbet among other options.

All of the dishes are completely free of meat, eggs and dairy foods.

PETA director Elisa Allen said: “Thanks to Musa, it’s easier than ever to extend the spirit of giving to all this holiday season by leaving animals off our plates.

“PETA encourages all Britons to celebrate a compassionate Christmas by enjoying a vegan feast – with all the taste and none of the cruelty of a traditional meaty spread.”

Other eateries on PETA’s list are located in Gloucestershire, Northampton, Sheffield and elsewhere across the UK.

Each one will receive a framed certificate and be featured on PETA’s website.
