After the ‘Tshirts and totes’ pop-up shop launch party at Friendship Vegan Shoes, Matt and I headed to Temple of Hackney to check out the their famous vegan fried chicken!
The staff in the shop were so welcoming and friendly and there were so many dishes to choose from that we couldn’t decide what to order; so eventually, we decided to try out almost the entire menu and ordered: a burger, a sub, chicken nuggets, mac n cheese, coleslaw and chips!
There’s a small seating area outside but as it was super cold out we decided to take away our huge, and I mean huge, vegan fried chicken feast and eat it in the car (after taking this cute insta-friendly picture)!
Vs real life
I was amazed at how chicken-like the dishes tasted, so if you liked the taste of fried chicken and want to try a cruelty-free version, then you would love Temple of Hackney! My favourite dishes were the mac n cheese and the coleslaw, whilst Matt loved the burger and fries!
I think it’s so cool that there is now an entirely vegan fast food place in Hackney, and I really hope they expand across London and beyond!
