These all-vegan places are going to make Veganuary a cinch.
It’s official: veganism is now too big to be stopped. We say, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. That’s getting a lot easier given that vivacious vegans are getting their own restaurants now. Not content with settling for half-assed salads, vegans will be able to eat the whole shop when this all-vegan duo open next year.
In February, the UK’s first vegan pizzeria will open in Camden. Purezza, which is Italian for ‘purity’, are favourites in their hometown of Brighton, but soon enough they’ll be in London. Wholegrain sourdough pizzas are topped with Italian rice mozzarella and pancetta made out of peas. No idea how this food devilry works, but we’re just going to roll with it.
It’s not just the vegans who will be foaming at the mouth for this one, however. A big range of raw food, and gluten-free options mean that basically every dietary requirement will be catered for. Know any fussy eaters?
For dessert, wrap your chompers round the holiest of vegan treats. Dough Society have been popping up around east London for years, but now they’re opening a permanent shop. The finest purveyors of vegan doughnuts around, you can check out their Instagram feed for some guilt-free food porn. Here’s a hint: twenty varieties of doughnut, including such delights as chocolate chip cookie dough and millionaire’s shortbread.
Dough Society will also be bringing vegan-friendly coffee, and rumours abound of a planned brunch menu which will feature Doughnut French Toast.
Mercifully, you won’t have to wait long, as they’re planning for a January opening in their favoured stomping grounds of Hackney.
