Vegan BBQ Ribs Have Arrived In London And They’ll Make You Question Everything

share on:

Barbie Grrrl, the Aussie vegan BBQ popper-upperers, have just settled into Shoreditch for a month-long residency.

Bringing 100% vegan, 100% tasty BBQ food to east London, Barbie Grrrl are changing the game for plant-based foods with their signature BBQ seitan ribs. They’re rubbed in turmeric, sweet paprika, fennel seeds and demerara sugar before being smothered in a delicious BBQ sauce.


You’ll find these legendary, carnivore-converting ribs in the beer garden at Shoreditch’s Canvas Café, just off Brick Lane. Choose to have them straight up for £5 or paired with Canvas Café’s summer salad selection for £7.

Barbie Grrrl will be cooking up a seitanic storm from Tuesday to Sunday each week until September 3rd, between 12-4pm and 6-9pm. Two things to bear in mind: a) it’s cash only and b) because they’re cooked fresh every morning, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
