Just when you think a vegan fried ‘chicken’ shop will be the most exciting thing to open in London this year, it has now been announced that an all-vegan kebab shop is set to open just one month later!

According to Metro, popup What the Pitta will open as an “entirely meat-free kebab restaurant” on February 1 in Boxpark Croydon. Some of the menu items will include vegan döner with spiced soya chunks, homemade tzatziki and hummus, and vegan baklava.

What the Pitta’s current menu:
  • Vegan Döner – Freshly made bread, spiced soya chunks, salad, homemade tzatziki, chilli sauce & hummus, £7.50
  • Salad box – The same as above, but with salad instead of bread, £7.50
  • Vegan Baklava – £2.50

Cem Yildiz, co-founder of What the Pitta, told Metro:

“We know veganism is set to boom in 2017 so it’s about time London had its own tastier, meat-free alternative. Not only for vegans, this is a healthier option that does good for you, the planet and doesn’t come with the next morning regret.”

With vegan fried ‘chicken’ at Temple of Seitan and vegan kebabs at What the Pitta, London is definitely doing a great job bringing in the new year!

What the Pitta will be opening in Boxpark Croydon in February, but until then you can try their vegan kebabs at popups at The Pump in Shoreditch, or order for delivery in zones one and two through Uber Eats.
