I first tried Temple of Seitan’s fried vegan chicken at the Just V Show last July so when I heard they were opening a permanent shop in Hackney I knew I had to go and get my fill!
They opened in January to massive queues as reported in the mainstream press and quickly had to recruit more staff and upscale their production.
I met up with my Sister-in-law and my Husband so we could share in this junk food feast!
We each went for the burger which came with vegan bacon, lettuce and mayo. They also have various sauces you can add yourself. The seitan is really crispy and chewy and the bun was lovely and soft.
I went for some coleslaw with mine, which was a huge pot. I think it could have done with been smaller and having more mayo in it!
My Sister-in-law went for some mac and cheese. I had a little nibble and really like it. I wasn’t too saucey which is my kind of mac and cheese.
My Husband got a “two piece” as well although there were three pieces in the container – bonus! I really liked the taste of the strips on their own as well.
They were also selling peanut butter, chocolate mud pies so we had to get some to take home. These were soft gooey and delicious.
I will definitely be going back to Temple of Seitan hopefully in the not too distant future.
