This is some damn exciting news. Street food favourites, Young Vegans, have opened their first bricks and mortar site in Camden Market. Never heard of Young Vegans? We’ll get you up to speed. Young Vegans started life as a street food stall flogging their vegan pies and sweet treats to hungry Londoners. And the team’s pies are off the ruddy chain – think flaky, delicious pies packed full of wholesome ingredients. Here’s what you need to know:

Young Vegans: The 411

Young Vegans was founded by vegan duo, Carla Monsora and Marco Casadei. Carla is a vegan chef with a passion and flair for creating unique and mouth-watering dishes. Marco is an experienced entrepreneur with an interest in sustainable businesses that have a positive impact on people and the planet. Their mission is to challenge the current status quo to prove that vegan is more than just another dietary option.

Having spotted a gap in the market for comfort food that was delicious, good for you and all-inclusive to the widest range of customers available, Young Vegans was born. Their pies can be enjoyed by all, whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, gluten intolerant, health conscious or just fancy a tasty pie that makes you feel good. In 2016 the brand began popping up at street food markets across London (Brick lane, Lower Marsh Market, Hackney Downs Vegan Market and Tottenham Green) as well as festivals and events across the UK.

Young Vegans: The Menu

The new menu features bestseller, the Seitan and Ale Pie with homemade seitan cooked in a sweet ale beer, the All Day Breakfast Pie crammed full of scrambled tofu, smoky baked beans, vegan sausages and caramelised onions, and the Curry Pie with butternut squash and chana kala peas cooked in a medium curry sauce. Gluten-free options are also available and include the Sweet Potato Pie, featuring sweet potato, garden peas and carrot pie with a chickpea crust and their Peanut Butter & Chocolate Mud Pies, for those who like to end their meal on a (sugar) high. Regular limited edition pies such as the celebration Mac and Cheese will be added to the menu, and December promises a few festive treats in store.
