So I’d ordered the Hail Seitan burger, a BBQ seitan steak served with hummus and kale. The burger itself was very meat-like, so much so that I had to check there wasn’t a meat version of the same burger on the menu.

At a first glance online, the menu also looks like a relative vegan haven – as this kind of cuisine can be, featuring lots of veggie mezze. I had identified more dishes that I wanted to try than I’d be able to reasonably eat in one sitting. Sadly however when it came to ordering, my hopes were dashed a little bit.
I decided on the Mac Daddy, a fried chicken-style seitan burger, topped with mac ’n’ cheese, in a bun with salad, with fries on the side. The seitan burger was perfectly crispy on the outside and the texture was pretty accurate to what you expect from a chicken burger. The seasoning was spot on too, so you’re left with something quite realistic.
