Kalifornia Kitchen joins a growing list of London vegan restaurants, but this one seriously stands out.
“Healthy is sexy” is the motto of Fitzrovia’s hot pink vegan restaurant, Kalifornia Kitchen. The entire place is free from animal products and single use plastic, and full of good vibes. (Header image by @lost.in.ldn)
Kalifornia Kitchen opened at the end of 2018, taking over the former site of very meaty burger bar, Big Fernand. It vowed not to be ‘just another vegan junk food restaurant’ and, instead, focuses on brilliant, healthy dishes that everyone can enjoy. Open from breakfast to dinner, the food is just as beautiful as the interiors – and they’re pretty hard to match ?
Plates include the very Instagrammable rainbow beetroot carpaccio, buckwheat and banana pancakes with coconut yoghurt and almond brittle, jackfruit and guac tacos, as well as curries and burgers.
The drinks menu ranges from the weird to the wonderful; featuring various “shots” to boost your immune system, smoothies full of all sorts of goodness, and CBD (cannabidiol) lattes, because it’s so on trend. There’s also wine, beers and fizz if you feel like getting tipsy – all totally vegan, of course.
Kalifornia Kitchen joins the likes of Genesis and by CHLOE. in the vegan restaurant game – both of which are equally Instagrammable and completely plant-based. 2019 is definitely the year we’ll see vegan food take over. (Well, our social media feeds, at least.)
