The revolution will be veganised
I think I am living in the wrong city.
I want vegan junk food. I want vegan comfort food. I want the food to be tasty. I want the food to have flair. I want to eat the food in a super cool setting. I want cake options. I want drinks like shakes and floats.
I got exactly what I wanted in Manchester.
V Revolution is the type of food provider the UK has been screaming out for and of which vegan Londoners are surely gravely jealous. Of course the food is incredible or I wouldn’t be considering moving back to Manchester, but I’ll get to that with photos shortly. Let’s first talk about the fucking coolness of the shop.
With the look and feel of an old school diner, V Revolution is all booths and chequered lino. The retro dining area looks onto the main street of Manchester’s Northern Quarter, while the rear of the store doubles as an independent record store and zine outlet serving DIY and metal enthusiasts.
Half way between these two ends is the counter area framed by fridges, freezers and shelves stocked with vegan groceries. Pick up cheese, ice cream, pantry items and more while you wait for your order.
That brings me to the food.
I almost cried. This is the sort of food I need and want in my life. Hot dogs piled high with gherkins, burger sauce and fried onions. Double patty burgers with added spicy beef strips, cheese and bacon. Cherry cola ice cream floats. Cake.
It is some of the best vegan food I have eaten in the UK. Every item is executed superbly and is exactly what I want when I pay for food.
Everything I ate during my visit to V Revolution was fabulous. Speaking with founder Dom Moss, I heard rumblings of a possible expansion which could include vegan beer. You all know how I feel about vegan beer.
I am in love with V Revolution.
