Temple of Seitan – Hackney / Camden

I wouldn’t say I’m religious but I do regularly worship at the Temple of Seitan 🙏🏼
I’m sure that a lot of you probably know about my love for pretendy meats so you won’t be particularly surprised to learn that one of my fave vegan “junk food” spots is Temple of Seitan in Hackney (and now in Camden!).

I have to say, I do think that it is physically impossible (and possibly should be considered illegal) to order  less than four menu items here 🙅🏼‍♀️ I mean, I just don’t understand how you could resist.

We went to town on The Temple Burger 🍔 with a crispy fillet, “bacon”, vegan cheese, lettuce, pickles and ranch mayo which is always an absolute winner in my eyes but we also ordered ourselves the twist wrap, the Mac & cheese, the hot wings and some chips.

The twister used to be my ‘go-to’ order at KFC before I went veggie so I was over the moon when I realised there was a vegan version! It’s a little bit lighter than the burger and it’s packed full of mayo which  really does it for me 😍

Whenever I visit, I always get the creamy mac , the spicy buffalo wings with ranch mayo and the chunky “chicken” fillets. Also, I feel like no order is complete without fries. 🍟 I won’t hear any different.

It’s amazing that you can get these replacements and whilst it isn’t exactly the same as real chicken (the seitan is quite thick and doesn’t carry the same flavour), it’s nice to have the option to eat the same kinds of things I used to and not feel like I’m missing out.

Standard exit strategy from TOS is to roll home due to over filling my stomach but I guarantee you I’ll do the same thing next time too.
