Now serving meat
This ain’t cool.
One of the finest purveyors of savoury vegan food in London is now selling meat.
I have long been a champion of Koshari Street. This food outlet near Covent Garden has been selling their delicious vegetarian food for several years.
Their main offering was a sumptuous pot of lentils, pasta, fried onions, chickpeas and tomato sauce that is a staple dish in Egypt. I absolutely adore this food.
Unfortunately, Koshari Street felt the need to switch from a 100% vegetarian menu (all the savoury food was 100% vegan) and have started offering meat as an option.
I reached out to the restaurant to ask ‘what the hell?!’ and they responded by saying they aim to please everyone.
I’ve got two things to say about that:
- The animals you are serving up surely are not happy with this development, so you have instantly failed in your mission to please everyone.
- Your Twitter bio still features the phrase ‘Our food is 100% #vegetarian’. Reports of you serving meat go back a month or more, so I would think you need to urgently update your social media to avoid upset and claims of false advertising.
Koshari Street assure me that vegans can still eat the savoury tub of food as long as they stay away from the meat.
The major problem for the restaurant is a lot of us don’t want to anymore.
