A fried chicken shop in Hackney. For Vegans. Yes really. The first in the world apparently. Authentic chicken shop decor (not necessarily something to boast about!), tastefully accessorised with a long queue of hipsters. The unmistakable taste of chicken is usually the last thing we would crave, but we had to admit this is fun and delicious. £6 for a “chicken” burger made from seitan combined with coconut cheese, excellent coleslaw and chipotle mayo, and all completely vegan. Initially we struggled to fit the idea of deep-fried naughtiness into our view of healthy eating for a healthy planet. Then we remembered that true optionality is about personal choice.
Best for a fast-food cure when only cheap and greasy will do. Queue up with your trendy mate and your fuzzy head – vegans have hangovers too you know. Go for the ideal alliance for cravings and morals.
