On the 18th and 19th of August KERB, is taking over the King’s Cross Canopy with their ‘Ultimate Vegan Rumble’. This features eight KERB-picked traders, all cooking up vegan dishes to battle it out for KERB’s golden carrot.
Thankfully going vegan isn’t seen as the pursuit of tree hugging hippies or super diet/health conscious anymore. It’s a thing that you can duck in and out of if you so please. Or go the whole way, which is something even a few years ago would have chilled me to the bone.
Thankfully we’re in 2017, and London’s streets are popping up with vegan offerings as perceptions shift. So the ‘on trend’ KERB team have brought together 8 of their favourite vegan wizards to conjure up two days straight of vegan indulgence for everyone regardless of your food orientation.
They are promising deep fried buffalo wings, chocolate brownie mud pies, red Thai curry pots, Venezuelan chip buttie arepas, Tandoori naans and Afro tacos but not as you know them. Enter the ‘Rumble’, eat them all, vote for the winner and live on the (v)edge.
Expect flavour explosions from KERB’s best, alongside brand new guest traders. Featuring: Bucket List reigning champions Petare, new inKERBator Biff’s Jack Shack, and vegan fast food fried chicken-shop pioneers, Temple of Seitan.
