Arancini Brothers to stay vegan
A few weeks ago, I shared news about London fast food chain Arancini Brothers turning their Old Street location into a 100% vegan eatery.
Since January 2, 2018 the outlet has served thousands of vegan and vegan-curious customers (as well as some meat eaters who just want outstanding food) who have raved about the extensive and delicious vegan menu.
As it is halfway through their vegan month, I dropped in on owner Dave Arkin to find out how it has been for the business and what the future holds.
How has the vegan month been for Arancini Brothers Old Street?
The support we’ve had from our regular customers and the vegan community has made the first few weeks the most incredible and satisfying experiences since selling our first risotto ball almost 9 years ago.
Have you been surprised by the interest and support of vegans?
More delighted than surprised. I have to say a big thank you to all the support we’ve had from you (that’s me, FGV!) and the vegan community. You have all made our vegan switch at Old Street possible.
Any news on the future?
After just two weeks of running our Old Street location as a fully vegan business, we’ve decided to keep the location vegan for good. It will always be a fully vegan place to eat and I couldn’t be happier with the decision.
How incredible is this news?!
Arancini Brothers Old Street is now a 100% vegan food outlet, 100% of the time. Forever.
I would like to extend my personal gratitude to Dave and his team for taking this leap of faith. The impact this will have in their part of London, across the UK, and further around the world is impossible to calculate but people are taking notice.
This is monumental.
Dave is showing you can do a good thing and still run a business. It doesn’t have to be one or the other.

That is so exciting!!!! I went in there today on your recommendation and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!!!! And, you get the risotto balls with every meal, which is amazing! I had a salad with the balls and my friend had the stew with the balls, and they were both delicious! Go! 🙂
