A nice find - Edit

Had a vegetarian and a vegan option called out clearly on the menu. Made to order. Both were very tasty.

Not bad - Edit

Babek is a small cute kebab/fast food shop. They offer a few vegan options, either clearly marked or offered as alternatives by the friendly and knowledgeable staff.

We tried the vegan kebab - it was fine, if you like faux-meat foods and are a kebab fan you'd probably love it, it's everything a faux-meat vegan kebab should be!

Other than that we had a salad which was disappointing - just lettuce/mixed greens, olive oil and balsamic.

The other vegan dishes on offer might also be decent - a wrap with chickpea pancakes (sounded interesting to me and would've been keen to try) and another salad (with beetroot and sliced peach - vegan without cheese - didn't sound like something for us that day).

Overall Babek was okay, thankfully for a kebab shop there are no giant rotating meat obelisks dripping fat to put you off your food. We wouldn't rush back to there to eat, among other things faux-meat is not really my thing, but if you like that sort of stuff I think you'd enjoy it quite a bit.

Pros: Nice atmosphere and decoration, Friendly and knowledgeable staff, Well-marked vegan options in menu

Cons: Faux-meat heavy, Small selection

Lovely spot if you're looking for some street food - Edit

Discovered by chance, it was a nice discovery.
The place opened in March and is owned by some guys from Sicily.
It offers a vegan version of Kebab, called Babek (amazing) and a classic from Sicily called pane e panelle, a sandwich filled with chickpeas based pancakes.
The guys were very friendly and talkative, explained us how they opened the place, the suppliers they used and so on.
A plus for me is the fact that most furniture is made of reused parts, giving a very pleasant atmosphere, and that dishes and forks are compostable.
A good pick in the very center of Milan!
