The first rule of @clubcultured is that you tell LITERALLY EVERYONE about @clubcultured 🌿👊🏼 (Complimentary)
So, there’s a brand new permanent vegan market at @trumanbreweryevery weekend, called @houseofveganldn. WOOHOO! 🌱 It features some incredible traders & dishes, including the amazing @clubcultured Club Rib and Kimchini balls 📸 .
🍔 The Club Rib burger is stuffed with 2 day marinaded tempeh BBQ ribs, root veg remoulade, macerated tomatoes, baby gem lettuce topped with a homemade chipotle mayo, served on sourdough.
Top tip? Bring napkins! This beast is saucy, messy and everything you want in a burger. It’s sweet, it’s smokey and it’s even a little fruity. There’s a mild heat too 🔥 The cheese is incredible 🧀 👏🏼 It tasted very realistic and really added to the overall flavour which is something vegan cheese doesn’t always achieve! The tempeh is simply brilliant. If you haven’t had tempeh before, make sure this is your first taste 🤤 The only feedback Chris and I had was that the sourdough was a little tough which made it hard to eat 🍞
The kimchini balls are also bloody BEAUUUTIFUL 😍 They’re packed with kimchi risotto flavoured with nori & sesame and a chunk of vegan mozzarella. They’re crumbed & fried until golden then topped with homemade yuzu mayo & toasted sesame seeds. Those crumbs, that melty cheese, the moist, creamy texture of the risotto, that perfect little dollop of divine mayo. These are honestly beautiful. Our only feedback was that we wanted more kimchi flavour 😋
I’m so proud of @harrywatmough, @_jamesd_ & @cjordan_95, the tempeh specialists, who’ve created this. They’ve been working on the idea for a really long time and all of their hard work, passion and attention to detail is really clear to see from just a bite of their food 👏🏼♥️ Now get down there and support these guys!
The lovely team were kind enough to invite me and gave me this food on a complimentary basis. No payment was received and all opinions, as always, are honest and my own.
