During Coronavirus Lockdown, Group Rallies Support for Businesses by Honouring Country’s Best Vegan Fare

London – To encourage people to eat vegan while supporting local eateries during the COVID-19 lockdown, PETA – which notes that the virus originated in a meat market – has compiled a list of the top 10 places that deliver vegan fried chicken in the UK.

The winners include the following:

Biff’s Jack Shack: This 100% vegan street food favourite delivers from Dalston, London, via Deliveroo, covering Hackney, Stoke Newington, Stamford Hill, and Newington Green . Enjoy delicious, crispy fried jackfruit wings with a sugarcane bone, burgers, and filthy fries .

Neat Burger: Vegan advocate and Formula 1 superstar Lewis Hamilton’s flagship restaurant is 100% plant-based. Deliveroo will bring orders to your home in 21 areas . Offerings include THIS Isn’t Chicken burgers, tater tots, and milkshakes.

Twisted London: The popular chain delivers to Birmingham, Dundee, Glasgow, Leicester, London, Manchester, Southend, Stockport, Sunderland, and other locations via Uber Eats. Try the KFV burger and the dirty vegan fries topped with crispy seitan nuggets

Absurd Vird: This eatery has locations in Bath, Exeter, Glasgow, Leeds, and London. Its crispy fried offerings include “chicken” burgers, tenders, and waffles with a variety of moreish dressings. Enjoy contact-free delivery straight to your door via Uber Eats.

“By treating yourself to vegan fried chicken, you’re supporting a local business while being kind to animals,” says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “Since live-animal markets and filthy factory farms are linked to the spread of COVID-19, SARS, swine flu, avian flu, mad cow disease, and more, we can help reduce the risk of future pandemics by opting for delicious vegan offerings over meat.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that chickens are smart, social, and sensitive animals who love their families and value their own lives. Those raised for their flesh on factory farms are routinely fed antibiotics and bred to grow so large that their legs often collapse under their own body weight. At the abattoir, they’re shackled upside down, their throats are slit, and they’re scalded in defeathering tanks – sometimes while still conscious.

Rounding out PETA’s list are Chicken & Blues in Bournemouth and Poole, DoppleGanger in Cambridge, Down the Hatch in Liverpool, Huns Vegan in Leicester, Greazy Vegan in Cardiff, and Sunshine Deli in Sheffield.
