SCOTLAND EATERIES NAB SPOTS ON PETA’S LIST OF THE UK’S BEST VEGAN FISH AND CHIPS

Holy Cow and Mono Serve Up Top-Notch Plant-Based Twists on Classic Chippy Fare

Scotland – 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 Edinburgh’s Holy Cow and Glasgow’s Mono have both earned a plaice on the list.

Holy Cow offers a delicious vegan fish burger made from celeriac – wrapped in seaweed, with chips on the side – while Mono serves up a hearty portion of protein-rich “tofish” ‘n’ chips.

“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 vegan options instead.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that plant-based dining 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 Birmingham, London, Sheffield, and elsewhere in the UK.
