Bad Vegan – Camden

I promise I haven’t been a bad vegan 🥺😱🌱 {ad – press sample}

Despite the name, newly opened @badveganuk, set up by @cheftomkerridge, isn’t a vegan restaurant 🌱 The tongue in cheek name refers to the fact that, unlike most restaurants which serve up non-vegan dishes and a few token vegan ones, this menu is predominantly vegan with a couple of non-vegan add-ons 🍴

It was designed to appeal to people who want to explore the plant-based world but aren’t ready to visit a fully vegan restaurant or make the full switch yet. Tbh call it what you want, I’m just happy to see top chefs serving up more vegan food 👨‍🍳

Here’s what I ate:

🌱Vegan cheese & onion Taternator tortilla wrap stuffed w/ crunchy potato, toasted sesame salad, pickled jalapeños, BV queso sauce & crispy onions

🌱 Vegan smoky chipotle & fresh lime slaw, roasted peanuts, BV queso sauce & fresh green chilli

🌱’Cauliflyer’ wings w/ a sticky chilli sauce, toasted sesame, fresh coriander & chilli

🌱’Smoked’ flatbread w/ smoky aubergine baba ganoush, falafel, charred onions, toasted sesame & roasted chickpeas with tangy sumac

🌱’Summer’ flatbread w/ tangy romesco sauce, olive oil roasted artichokes & peppers, vegan cheese & piquant roquito peppers

🌱Classic salted fries

🤷🏼‍♀️ Visit again? I might stop by if I was in the area as the food was tasty but I’d like to see a bit more variety and creativity on the menu as it’s quite small and some of the dishes feel a bit samey (e.g. the wraps). I’d have loved to see these talented chefs steer the menu away from vegan “comfort” food as we already have so much of it in London. The wings were my fave dish – glaze was great – would’ve liked more crunch though. Some of the prices were steep. Happy to see chefs taking on vegan food more though!
