Temple of Seitan caused a huge stir when they opened their first vegan fried ‘chicken’ shop location in Hackney (10 Morning Lane, E9 6NA London). 

The new shop will open in Camden in January 2018, and, to make this news even more exciting, this one will actually have indoor seating so you can enjoy your meal in store.

It’ll be called Temple of Camden, and the owners have called it a ‘proper restaurant’ rather than their standard takeaway spot.

Soon hungry vegans will be able to get their hands on all manner of delicious vegan junk food without trekking over to Hackney or having to queue for ages just to take your food back home with you when the new venue opens in January.


But what is their ‘chicken’ made from we hear you cry! Why, seitan of course! If you’ve never heard of seitan before, Temple of Seitan’s Rebecca McGuinness explains: “Seitan is a meat alternative made from wheat protein powder. It can be made with gluten flour, water and seasonings that best emulate the flavours of the meat you are trying to replicate. We make all of our own seitan from scratch.”


Temple of Seitan already has plenty of fans, and blogger Fat Gay Vegan says he’s “obsessed” with the brand’s “crispy savoury perfection,” adding: “Their range of deep fried seitan snacks, tubs of mac n cheese and filled sandwiches is in the top five things to eat on the planet.
