BIRMINGHAM EATERY NABS SPOT ON PETA’S LIST OF THE UK’S BEST VEGAN FISH AND CHIPS
The Veggie Chippy Serves Up a Top-Notch Plant-Based Twist on Classic Chippy Fare
Birmingham – Across the UK, diners can find vegan food just about anywhere, from the corner shop to the chicest restaurants – and that goes for fish-free “fish” and chips, too. That’s why PETA set out to identify the UK’s Best Vegan Fish and Chips, and Birmingham’s The Veggie Chippy has earned a plaice on the list.
The soya “vish”, battered “vod”, and “vish” fingers – all available with hand-cut chips – are among the most popular choices on The Veggie Chippy’s menu.
“With the demand for plant-based food higher than ever, vegan fish and chips is a smart addition to any restaurant menu”, says PETA Vegan Corporate Projects Manager Dawn Carr. “PETA is calling on caring people everywhere to let fish live in peace and to enjoy some delicious, hearty ‘tofish’ instead.”
PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that plant-based takeaway spares fish the immense pain of being impaled, netted, and gutted. Vegans are also less prone to suffering from cancer, obesity, and diabetes than meat-eaters are and have a lower carbon footprint. These are just some of the reasons why more and more British people are enjoying vegan foods and why the number of requests for PETA’s free vegan starter kit increases every year.
Other eateries winning a mention on PETA’s list are located in Edinburgh, London, Newcastle, and elsewhere in the UK.
