Since then, they've expanded across France and Italy and Fitzrovia will be their first London opening.

The sausages themselves are Dishoom's vegan sausages, developed by
They already have a vegan diner in Camden - but in uncertain times, Rudy's have also branched into the "butchery" business in Islington - vegan butchery of course. They've taken over the site on the corner of Islington Park Street and Upper Street that was previously Burger Lux.
If you're wondering what exactly does a vegan butcher mean in practice? Well, you'll be able to stock up on some of their vegan

Fancy getting a taste of Shoreditch but aren't quite ready to go on public transport yet? Then the replacement that's taking over the old American Car Wash site might be for you. For six days, it's going to be taken over by Meatless Farm to create the M*** F*** Drive-Thru.
It is - more or less - exactly as it sounds, but the drive-thru also has a lane for pedestrians, e-scooters and bicycles. And if you
Neat Burger, the plant-based burger chain that's backed by Lewis Hamilton, is growing. They already had a restaurant in Mayfair, but now they've just expanded to Camden Market too, which opened this week.

Pret may be having some difficulties at the moment, with fewer workers in the office, but the Veggie Prets continue to be very popular. And they're moving to the next stage of development with the launch of an all-vegan bakery counter. Making it all-vegan means that they're also launching lots of new pastries.
We're among many, many people who have a not-so-secret love of the Ikea meatballs. A trip to the store isn't the same without a plate of meatballs and chips and then taking home even more for the freezer. Just writing this is making us crave them right now. God, we love them.
