Friday 18th – Saturday 19th August, will be your opportunity to live life on the (V)EDGE, pun intended, as a vegan street food festival is coming to Kings Cross. Livin’ On The Veg will see eight street food traders set up shop in King’s Cross to conjure up two days straight, of vegan indulgence for everyone to enjoy, with one trader being crowned the tastiest of them all. Visitors will sample a dish from each stall (and receive a free cocktail on entry), included in the ticket price, after which they can vote for their favourite at the VEG Wall Of Fame. Here is the line-up and what to expect, as quoted by the Evening Standard: ‘Biff’s Jack Shack will be saying “cluck you” to fried chicken, serving double-fried jackfruit ‘buffalo wings’ speared on a sugar cane ‘bone’ and laced with maple bourbon hot sauce. And the rather marvellously-named Temple of Seitan will also be imitating the bird, serving ‘chicken’ sliders made from the wheat-based meat substitute. Venezuelan stall Petare will be cooking up chip butties made from arepas stuffed with cassava chips, sweet fried plantain, feta, avocado and garlic sauce, and Eritrean stall Lem Lem Kitchen will be whipping up so-called afro-tacos made with injera bread and spicy lentils. There will be tandoori cauliflower steak from Indian-influenced Spice Box, Greedy Khao will be making a Thai red curry with tofu, and Korean stall Eat Chat will have bánh mì on hand. To round it off, the Young Vegans have pudding covered in the form of chocolate peanut butter mud pie brownies. Dairy free, of course.’ There will also be a KERB bar, cocktail bar and beer bar, serving up Vegan specials, with DJ’s throughout.The event runs across three sessions: Friday evening (6-11pm), Saturday afternoon (12-5pm) and Saturday evening (6-11pm). Early bird tickets (now sold out) start from £25 and standard tickets from £30, which include one dish from each trader plus a free cocktail. For more information and to purchase tickets go to kerb
