‘Not another vegan junk food joint?’ we hear you cry. Well yes, but this one’s different.
There are no gimmicks here (unless you count the fact that it’s cashless, which we don’t), no‘experimental’ flavours or faddy ingredients, just a good range of fast food classics like burgers, malt shakes, sandwiches and salads, with beer in the evening and the sort of breakfast options you’d expect to find in a New York diner.
Flipside is also flippin’ the elusive ‘Beyond’ burger, which has already made it something of a destination for London herbivores. We tried the ‘bleeding’ plant-based pattie on a recent visit, causing long-term veggies among us to flash back to their last Maccy D (in the best possible way). It’s hard to convey just how convincing the texture of these bad boys mimics that of real beef, but suffice to say I had to google the ingredients while eating, just in case
there’d been a terrible misunderstanding. There hadn’t.
