BIFF'S JACK SHACK

2-10 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6GY, UK
Shoreditch High Street

The guys at Biff’s Jack Shack have a real talent for transforming jackfruit into tasty patties and pieces, and even when fried it still counts as one of your five-a-day…WINNER. We love the Samuel Hell Jackson – a jackfruit burger with chipotle ‘slaw, maple chipotle hot sauce, jalepenos, burger cheese and hot sauce – and the ‘Buff’ Bangin wings, covered in vegan blue cheese and hot sauce. The Bang Bang fries are also a must, topped with cinnamon sweet chilli, miso mayo, nuts, crispy onion and coriander.

THE SPREAD EAGLE

In case you hadn’t noticed, Londoners are mad for vegan food. Luckily London has a 100% vegan pub, The Spread Eagle, in Hackney (where else?). And when we say 100% vegan, we mean just that. Everything. The fixtures, the fittings, even the candles are all animal free. Club Mexicana is in charge of the grub so you can feast on baja to’fish tacos and chick’n wings, and wash it all down with vegan-friendly cocktails – their tequila sour uses aquafaba instead of egg white.
