East London's popular vegan Chinese restaurant Mao Chow broke the hearts of plant eaters across town when its last pop-up at Pamela finished. But now owner Julian Denis whose self-proclaimed "inauthentic Chinese Food" broke Instagram with shots of incredibly realistic looking vegan 'eggs' in various Chinese dishes has moved it to a more permanent footing.
They open at Behind the Wall in Hackney on Thursday for an indefinite period, and the dishes they're serving up there look pretty amazing as these Insta posts show. There's devilled egg with caviar, scallion oil and garlic chives, chinese sashimi which is kombu cured watermelon with mala vinaigrette, dan dan noodles with ground 'pork' and - possibly not if you don't fancy going down the faux meat route - blood sausage with turmeric pickled daikon and lacto fermented hot sauce.
For all ya’ll vegan vamps in the haus! 🧛🏻♀️🌱 BLOOD SAUSAGE w/ turmeric pickled daikon! Part of our new menu launching June 7th at @btwldn Space is filling up quick.
