Veganism: currently the reigning food fad in London – and a welcome one at that. With a plethora of top restaurants revealing plant-based menus and animal-product-free street food becoming ubiquitous around the city, the green tide keeps on rising. The next high water mark? Vegan kebab merchant What the Pitta! is set to open its third permanent branch on March 9, in the resurgent foodie hotspot of Camden Town.
Already a fixture at Croydon and Shoreditch Boxparks, WTP!’s vegan doner kebabs substitute mystery meat with non-GM seasoned soya that’s marinated in Middle Eastern spices, grilled and whacked into handmade flatbreads with houmous and tzatziki. Lovely stuff. But there’s more! The menu at this new spot also features meat-free Turkish pizza, couscous salads and baklava. Between WTP!, Club Mexicana at Kerb and the newfangled N1C branch of Temple of Seitan, Camden’s set to become an unlikely mecca for vegan junk food. 2018, eh?
What the Pitta! is opening on Friday March 9 at 89-91 Bayham St, NW1 0AG.
