Everyones favourite market food!

Bia's is much loved by vegans and non-vegans alike in Norwich. Their caulifire bites and garlic aioli sauce are legendary, I cannot make an order without them on the side as they are so delicious.
Their menu changes every now and then. All good is freshly made on the stall to order.
Try the beet burger!!
Bia's is my fave food spot in Norwich.

Pros: Completely vegan kitchen, Central city location, Great food!

Cons: None

Delicious lunch in the market

Lovely lunch from this vegan stall in Norwich market - I had a spicy bean burrito with vegan cheese. We’d meant to go to their restaurant the following night but it was fully booked til 9 so we will make sure to book early on our next trip.

Pros: All vegan!

So tasty!!

Had one of their jackfruit burgers and fried spicy caulifower (I requested they skip the hotsauce as I'm not too good with spice and they were perfectly okay with that!) and it was to die for. Friendly servers too! They also sell cute little vegan pin accessories and snacks from Paul the Hench Herbivore 💪
Every time I go past this place it seems to have a queue longer than any of the non-veg market stalls - awesome to see - yet still got the food quickly. Definately got back at some point to try out some of the other stuff on their menue!

Pros: Entirely vegan & yummy food, Great prices (£5ish), Friendly servers

Simply the best.

Bia Kitchen is easily one of the best places to eat when in Norwich.

The staff are super friendly despite how busy it can get sometimes on a Saturday afternoon and will always keep a smile on their face and talk to you.

The food is next level, everything is obviously vegan and it's nice to see dishes that everyone loves being made as vegan. Their breakfast bap (with the extra patty, obviously) is my regular go to - two sausage patties with scrambled tofu and baconnaise in a crusty roll, and it's brilliant. I was actually eating these over anything else in Norwich waaaay before I even considered going vegan.

Everything else on the menu is great too, from the pulled jackfruit baps, to the buffalo cauliflower wings and then the tofu katsu curry to the poboy subs. And it's really good pricing as well, it's cheaper than popping to McDonalds for a Big Mac - so worth it.

Fantastic little place, the heart of Norwich market.

Pros: Excellent food / variety., Great pricing., Friendly staff!

Cons: Can get busy (not that it's a bad thing)

Best place for vegan street food

The love I have for this place is unreal. Amazing, quick and easy vegan food. From BLT’s to Katsu curries. There is a little something for everyone. And you can’t conplain about the price. Definitely worth a lunch time look in.

Pros: Value, Quality, Location

Cons: No seating

Great food

Delicious food. Average £5 an item. Cooked to order. Friendly staff. Usually one of the busier stalls, but even with massive questions, wait is never more than four or five minutes. Get there off-peak to avoid a mosh pit!

Pros: Great-tasting food, Nice staff, Food made quickly

Cons: Long ques makes it hard to get through

The pulled jackfruit bap was delicious, the sauce was really tasty without being too fiery. The cauliflower bites were a bit oily for my liking but this is fast food. Everything is cooked to order and the service is efficient and friendly.
There are benches at the top of the market which are a lovely spot to eat your food if the weather is fine.

Pros: Tasty food, Good value for money, Right in the centre of Norwich

Forgive me padre for I have sinned

OK I've been to quite a few vegan junk food places like this now around the UK (shoutout to Vx Bristol, Vegan Hippo Soho etc). They've all been brilliant, but Bia was the best by FAR. Absolutely amazing food, delicious flavours with an American diner theme and lots of choices. Enough to make me wonder why I ever ate meat at all. Lovely staff. Such a treat in the heart of Norwich market 😍

Pros: Lots of different spices, flavours and choices, Accept card payments

Cons: Nowhere to sit, although on a nice day wander outs

Great original vegan options

With a rotating menu of 5 key items available each week, Bia is a very welcome addition to the historic Norwich market. I have never had a bad choice here - sampling the pulled jack bap, breakfast bap, katsu curry and mushroom po-boy (this converted me to loving mushrooms - so it must be good!) Always cooked to order and the cauliflower bites should't be missed. Now that they are open on Sundays, I will visit even more often! My dad is a meat eater and I told him to try the pulled jack bap and he couldn't believe that it wasn't meat!

Pros: Changing menu, Delicious food, Unique vegan choices

Cons: No seating, Sometimes sells out of options during busy periods

A lovely little place

I came here with with my husband and we both had the breakfast bap. He loved it, in fact he loved it so much he ate mine. I on the other hand didn't enjoy it, but I think that's more to personal taste, not because it was bad. I'm a bit funny about sausage flavoured things, but if you're not then you should go here. Everything else was great, friendly staff, nice presentation and good options.

Pros: Nice vegan food, friendly staff, fair price

Amazing place to eat :P

I went to this beauty of a stall today. The 3 ladies there rock!!! Such lovely women. We had a good chinwag. My partner and I had a deeeeeeeeeeeelicious pulled BBQ Jackfruit bap with red cabbage. I had the gluten free bap(nice touch). Wow-eee... very tasty. The dude also had a yummy spicy burrito. Generous portions. We are gutted we don't live closer to visit all the time :D We also got a lovely little freebie off these sweethearts. A brownie and salted caramel energy ball. So kind of Michelle. Very tasty too. I just had to sign up to Happy Cow to review as they so deserve the praise. Thank you ladies. We'll definitely be back Saturday before we go back to London... if not before ha. Keep up your awesome hard work and makes me so proud to be Vegan to see people repping such a wonderful cause. Yaaay... go Vegan *fist pump*

Pros: Awesomeness ladies, Scrumptious food, Fantastic and fair prices

Cons: You don't live in London ha

Bia Kitchen

Bia Kitchen is a stall in the busy market area in Norwich city centre. The stalls are numbered so I found it easy to locate.

Small menu of takeaway foods but even though the range wasn't huge, I had difficulty choosing because it all sounded great. I eventually picked the hoagie sub which did not disappoint. Service was very quick and staff friendly. Price was also reasonable.

Vegan street food!

Good street food is a relative rarity in the UK, but Bia ticks that box. The menu contains mostly snack foods, but are all very tasty. The pulled jack bap is a big favourite (with jackfruit replacing pulled pork).
