Tom Kerridge’s new plant-based restaurant opens at Camden’s Buck Street Market

Bad Vegan aims to encourage non-vegans to consume more plant-based food.

A plant-based restaurant co-founded by chef Tom Kerridge has opened at Camden’s Buck Street Market.

Bad Vegan, which aims to encourage non-vegans to consume more plant-based food as part of their diet, took two of Buck Street Market’s shipping containers, covering 415 sq ft on its top floor.

Its menu includes ‘The Taternator’, a crunchy potato finger wrapped in soft tortilla, and ‘The Cauliflyer’, crunchy cauliflower florets coated in a sweet, sticky chilli sauce. The concept also has vegan milkshakes served with a coconut foam, and has partnered with Camden Town Brewery for exclusive collaboration beers.

“When designing the menu, we knew we wanted to create something that brought out the delicious flavours of seasonable vegetables, whilst ensuring that it would be filling and affordable for a large audience,” Kerridge said in a media release.

Mark Emms, also a co-Founder of Bad Vegan, added: “For so long, there have been such limited vegan options at restaurants, and dishes almost always feel like an after-thought. Bad Vegan flips the emphasis around, creating a space where plant-based food leads the menu, but still somewhere that both vegans and non-vegans would be excited to visit.”
