Order: 2 fried pieces and chips
The Run-down: Yes. Temple of Seitan have opened a bricks and mortar site named Temple of Hackney. Temple of Seitan have made waves this year by opening the first vegan ‘chicken’ shop in London – the team are seriously turning up the heat (coconut oil) on the vegan offering in the capital. As the name suggests, Temple of Seitan specialise in one product: seitan. If you’re not familiar with seitan, it’s derived from the protein portion of wheat. Take a bite of their crispy, fried seitan doused in house dressing and nestle in a fluffy bap, and tell us that it doesn’t taste good.
