Oowee is fast becoming the hottest new vegan food chain in the South of England after starting out as a pop-up in Bristol. Here's a look at what you can find on Oowee's vegan menu...

It would be a pretty cool thing if a place were to start out as a single omnivorous American-style diner and quickly grow into the hottest new vegan food chain in the South of England. Well, thats exactly what happened with Oowee Vegan! 

Oowee began life in 2016 as a pop-up sandwich kitchen in Bristol, which then became an American-style diner (Oowee Diner).

The original Oowee is not vegan, but the popularity of the vegan items on its menu caused its founders to start developing a vegan onlyversion of the brand in 2018.

They launched two fully vegan restaurants in Bristol the following year. And just like that, Oowee Vegan was born.

Is all of Oowee vegan?

Oowee opened as a tiny takeaway that soon became infamous in Bristol for serving huge, decadent burgers. Rapidly expanding from these humble beginnings, the brand now comprises the original Oowee Diner in Bristol, and five separate locations of Oowee Vegan in Bristol, London and Brighton.

Oowee Vegan opened its first vegan restaurant in London in Dalston in 2020, which launched virtuallyvia Deliveroo before setting up in its permanent location.

They now have two different locations in London (Dalston and Brixton), two in Bristol (Picton Street and Baldwin Street), and one restaurant in Brighton.

What exactly is Oowee?

In their own words, Oowee makes and serves mind-blowing junk food” that just happens to be vegan”.

Oowee Vegan recreated all of the original Oowee Diner favourites with plant-based ingredients so successfully that they won the title of Deliveroos vegan restaurant of the year in 2019. And the phenomenal success via Deliveroo cemented the Oowee team’s commitment to being a 100% vegan brand from that point on.

On their website, Oowee Vegan proudly proclaims that theyre on a mission to revolutionise fast food” because they believe the future of food is plant-based”.

They want to create a chain of high street vegan restaurants that are loved by vegans and non-vegans alike — and judging by the growing number of locations and their Instagram following, its a plan that seems to be working.

Whats on the Oowee Vegan menu?

The biggest problem youll have when ordering is deciding what to eat, because there is so much choice. But herbivores the world over will agree thats a rather unusual and lovely problem to have.

The folks behind the brand are clearly aware of the menu conundrum, because theyve created an online quiz to help you decide what to get!

Oowee Vegans menu is typical of a fast-food chain in that it consists of vegan burgers, fries and sides, but thats pretty much where the similarity ends. Because all of their burgers, fries and sides are mind-blowing. Lets take a look at what they are…
