A Ridiculously Tasty Vegan Pop Up Has Come to Shoreditch

Vegan restaurants.

They’re not just a place to veg out.

Not, at least, when you’re at Sixty:2, a plant-based pop up that’s dedicated to serving up food for thought, as well as for eating.

They’re taking up residency throughout September at Brick Lane’s proper grassroots Canvas Café (London’s first self-proclaimed ‘happy café,’ already revered for its vegan freakshakes). And that aformentioned food for thought comes in the form of a little, unobtrusive pamphlet to your table full of environmental arguments for a plant-based diet.

But the main event, of course, is the food itself though – and it’s (in a metaphorical sense) pretty meaty. You’ll find starters like spiced tempura cauliflower, and wild mushroom arancini coated with crispy polenta leading to mains of pumpkin, beetroot and carrot rosti on a truffled fava bean purée; and sesame-studded spiced aubergine croquettes. If you’ve got room, of course, you can tuck into cardamom sponge with a fruits of the forest syrup, or a chocolate and coconut tart…

It makes veganism look like a piece of cake.


NOTE: Sixty:2 is running Thursday-Saturday evenings throughout September. You can reserve a table and find out more on the website HERE.
