Vegan Bacon Cone Rolls into London

The owners of the world's only vegan fried chicken shop are debuting a seitan-based bacon, shaped into a cone, stuffed with fried chicken, and topped with vegan cheese sauce.

London-based Temple of Seitan—the world’s first vegan fried chicken shop—will debut its newest creation, the Bae-Cone, at Hackney Downs Vegan Market this Saturday. The handheld creation consists of pieces of seitan-based bacon rolled into a cone and stuffed with vegan popcorn chicken, French fries, and other toppings, then doused in vegan cheese sauce. “It’s heavily inspired by the excess of American thatched bacon dishes,” Temple of Seitan co-founder Pat O’ Shea told media outlet Metro. “However, we know that there’s no reason vegan food can’t be just as dirty and over the top. It’s a pig-free pig out!” The Temple of Seitan opened in January and attracted massive crowds that waited outside to sample its vegan offerings despite heavy rain.
