A non-vegan place turns vegan: Day one
I am super excited about getting down to the newly-vegan Old Street branch of Arancini Brothers tomorrow (Thursday January 4, 2018) for their grand re-opening.
It is also the official launch of my book and they just shared this post of the stock arriving:
Look what just arrive at Old st. Ready for launch, tomorrow 4th January with special guest @fatgayvegan himself. Get down early, have a feeling it's going to be a busy day 🙋🙋 . . . . . . #veganblogger #londonblogger #mynexteat #risottoballs #arancinibrothers #timeoutlondon #vegan #whatveganseat #arancini #dalston #londonvegan #londonvegans #vegansofldn #hackneyvegans #visitlondon #veganburger #londonfoodboy #veganuary #veganjunkfood #foodporn
I reached out to owner Dave to see how the soft opening went yesterday and he said:
Even though this area is a ghost town at this time of year, we had a queue out the door between midday and 2pm. There were lots of customers loving the FGV Burger and we didn’t get a single complaint from our regular meat eating customers. It has been a great start to our vegan project!
Such good news!
Click here to see the full menu plus some food photos. Hopefully I’ll see some of you at the grand re-opening/book launch tomorrow. If you can’t make it tomorrow, Arancini Brothers Old Street will be 100% vegan for the entire month of January and maybe longer if it works out for them.
