The central London branch of a chain eatery announced it will go permanently vegan – after just two weeks of a planned month-long trial.
Arancini Brothers in Old Street planned to ditch meat and dairy for the month of January, with top blogger Fat Gay Vegan breaking news of the trial.
He wrote: “Forget vegetarian sandwich shops and vegan side menus, Arancini Brothers Old Street is going all in on veganism and will be completely free of animal products.”
Writing about what makes the outlet special, he said: “Big grains of rice are mixed through slow cooked onion, garlic and herbs, before vegetable stock is added to make a firm, delicious risotto.
“They mix through flavours like parsley and lemon before hand rolling into little balls, coating in rice flour then frying.”
Fat Gay Vegan revealed the news that the outlet will be permanently vegan on his Instagram page.
He wrote: “After just two weeks of their month-long trial of being 100 percent vegan, Arancini Brothers Old Street location has announced it will stay completely vegan forever.
“This is huge news. Much love and thanks to owner Dave and his team for making the leap into full-time veganism at their Old Street branch.”
