5 of the best vegan fried chicken haunts in London
Whether you’re vegan, veggie, pesce or a meat eater trying to cut back – the phrase ‘every little helps’ has never mattered as much as it does now.
We are all still human though and we all still have cravings. But there’s nothing better than indulging them in a guilt-free way that doesn’t harm us or the planet.
So, if you find yourself longing for comfort food during these winter months and just need something fried (and fried chicken seems to be the weak spot of many), why not try out these vegan equivalents? They might even taste better than the real thing…
