About Time: You Visited London’s First Vegan DinerBy Alicia Grimshaw
Camden Market is fasting becoming a hot bed for vegan haunts. After welcoming London’s first vegan pie and mash shop last year (Youngs Vegans’ mac n’ cheese pies are the best in the business), and hosting the the UK’s first festive vegan deli – the plant-power force is strong in North London.
Welcoming another meat-free establishment into the fold is Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner, a casual eatery whipping up US classics. Come hungry, this place will satisfy all your fast food needs:
Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner: The Lowdown
Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner is the brainchild of former primary school teacher, Ruth (Rudy) Mumma and vegan chef, Matthew Foster. Having spent the best part of 2 decades teaching children the national curriculum in America, on moving to London, Ruth was introduced to veganism by Matthew, who made her realise that there were other choices that children needed to be aware of. Matthew Foster, Head Chef at the diner has been working in F&B for the last 25 years. Having gained a wealth of experience and expertise working across the industry, from fine dining to gastro pub to street food cuisine, his dream has always been to create and serve diner style food. Not only is it the food he enjoys most, but, if done well, believes it can’t fail to provide comfort and make people smile.
