Have you been vegan for a while and still craving a good old chippy?? If you made the slow transition from Pescetarian, Vegetarian to Vegan, undoubtedly you learnt to lean on fish and develop a love for it as a protein source, and despite yourself, you might still miss it. I know I certainly do after 9 years and I’m happy to admit it! So have your fish and eat it. Just without any of the guilt and mercury that comes with the real-deal. Fish and chips is the classic British staple that isn’t going anywhere, so why not support the places that have embraced the vegan revolution and now offer it as a staple menu option. And for those omnis that are looking to incorporate more plant-based foods in their diet for health or environmental reasons, go ahead and check these out too! Just keep an open mind, don’t go in with any expectations, and give these vegan chippys a whirl.
