A post made to Facebook this weekend shows a sign outside of the restaurant which reads ‘Veganism’, and warns consumers that the Victoria Street establishment is not actually vegan.
The Facebook post also sparked confusion over the name of the restaurant.
One commenter wrote: “Why is their sign Veganism and their fb name Shizuku? Im confused [sic].”
The person who posted the original image said it was a matter ‘confused omnivores trying to cash in’ on the vegan movement.
Another user wrote that ‘there may be legal routes for false advertising’.
It should be noted that the restaurant – while not actually vegan – does serve at least ten options which are labeled vegan on its menu.
Plant Based News has reached out to the restaurant for comment, but has not yet received a response.
