BREAKING NEWS: fried chicken location
When I broke news of Temple of Seitan announcing plans to open the UK’s first ever fried chicken shop, it set off shock waves around the vegan Internet.
People went absolutely wild for the news.
In keeping with my tradition of bringing the most fun news first, here is the scoop on just exactly where the fried chicken shop will be AND the official opening date.
Temple of Hackney
Grand opening: Saturday January 14, 2017 at midday
Address: 10 Morning Lane, Hackney E9 6NA
How amazing is the name?! What you can see above is a sneak preview of the inside wall of the shop.
I asked Rebecca of Temple of Seitan (and of course Temple of Hackney) how she was feeling ahead of the launch. Here is what she told me:
It is equal parts excitement and anxiety! We can’t wait to share the fruits of our labour over the last 3 months. The past year of doing stalls and festivals has gone so quickly and we almost couldn’t believe it was real when the signage and graphics went up today. In store, people can expect the usual fast food experience, except that they will be free to attack all items on the menu without having to worry about ingredients. Hopefully, we can fool a few omnis who stumble in as well.
Temple of Hackney, people. Make it your place of worship.
