10 Aug Veg’n Out: Food Review
A brand new family-run catering business has just set up their van in Canterbury city centre, and it’s all Vegan! Considering they only opened on the 5th of August, and the fact that our food order was kind of huge (woops), everything is cooked super quick and freshly right in front of you. This is definitely a place to go if you want to prove to people that Vegan fast food can be just as good as normal fast food (if not better).
The menu is large for such a small van; it includes sweet and savoury things from cakes and milkshakes to toasties and tofish and chips. We decided to order the chick’n drumsticks, tofish and chips, and a breakfast roll (sausage, bacon, and egg) – I convinced myself that we should order an abundance of things purely because of the blog post when in reality it was because I couldn’t choose between all the amazing food that they sell. There are a couple small tables available so you can sit down and wait for your food to be cooked; the lovely owners actually came out and brought our huge order to us.
I can safely say that the breakfast roll that I ordered was not only the best Vegan roll I’ve had but also my favourite out of all the breakfast rolls I have eaten previous to being Vegan – you must try it if you go! I have no clue what the ‘egg’ was made out of but it tasted so realistic; it seems like they make the majority of the faux meats etc. themselves which I find quite impressive. It may sound like I’m being biased or dramatic (I’m not, I promise!), but the tofish was also perfect; it was so crispy and had just the right amount of tofu in the middle. I find that sometimes people tend to use a really thick piece which kind of ruins the illusion. The chick’n drumsticks were made from soy protein and they even had a little imitation bone through the middle to make it more realistic (this may have been a sugar cane, but I’m not 100% sure). It was all such good value for money with our whole order coming to under £12 – that’s pretty amazing for a freshly cooked, cruelty-free meal.
They also bake the loveliest looking sweet treats like chocolate cake and granola bars; I have heard from other customers that the cakes are definitely worth going back for. A huge plus is that the owners are super nice, chatty and welcoming, which always makes the experience a hundred times better. I can’t wait to visit again!
If you’re near Canterbury come down to the city centre to give this new Vegan business some love and support! Whether you eat meat or not, you’re definitely going to want to try this incredible food. Here’s their Facebook page if you want to check them out beforehand.
