United Kingdom-based vegan company Young Vegans opened its first brick-and-mortar location this week in London’s Camden Market. The eatery specializes in iconic British handheld pies—a dish similar to a pot pie in which a flakey crust is filled with vegan meats, cheeses, vegetables, and sauces, and traditionally served with a side of mashed potatoes doused in vegan gravy. The Young Vegans menu includes a pie made with seitan and sweet ale beer, a sweet potato pie stuffed with vegetables in a tomato sweet wine sauce, and a breakfast pie featuring tofu scramble, sausage, and caramelized onions. The eatery also serves gluten-free peanut butter brownies. Prior to opening the brick-and-mortar location, Young Vegans—founded by Carla and Marco Casadei in 2016—has operated as a stand at the weekly Hackney Downs Vegan Market, where it recently debuted a vegan Cheeseburger Pie. This weekend, the company will introduce the Dia Del Fat Gay Vegan—a pie made in honor of famed UK-blogger Sean O’Callaghan that features seitan carnitas, refried black beans, and cheese topped with vegan sour cream and served with hash browns.
