Location Announced For London’s First Vegan Fried Chicken Shop

Temple of Seitan’s much anticipated vegan fried chicken shop (the first of its kind in London, and possibly the world) has now got an opening date and location.

Blogger Fat Gay Vegan recently revealed the grand opening to be:

This Saturday, January 14th at midday on 10 Morning Lane, Hackney, E9 6NA.

A sneak preview of the venue décor shows off the newly named ‘Temple of Hackney’.

Here’s what Rebecca McGuinness of Temple of Seitan told blogger Fat Gay Vegan ahead of the launch:

‘It is equal parts excitement and anxiety! … In store, people can expect the usual fast food experience, except that they will be free to attack all items on the menu without having to worry about ingredients. Hopefully, we can fool a few omnis who stumble in as well.’

With the rise of the fried chicken reviewer Chicken Connoisseur online recently, fried chicken has never been so big in London. And now it can be beautiful too.

‘Seitan is a meat alternative made from wheat protein powder. It can be made with gluten flour, water and seasoning that best emulate the flavours of the meat you are trying to replicate. We make all of our seitan from scratch,’ explains Rebecca to Homemade.

Veganuarians get excited for the pengest vegan munch this Saturday on 10 Morning Lane.
