Vegan butcher shop and deli counter, opened Jun 2014. Offers veg-twists on meat: the ba-con is made from coconut, the no-pork pulled pork from cabbage, and the lox from carrots. The deli counter is filled with prepared food that's ready to eat or to cook, including Korean barbecue chickn empanadas, veggie ground round, a soy-based Mongolian beef, beet burgers, and no-crab cakes.

The Future - Edit

Amazing store - every town should have a hundred of these and we'd all be in a better place.

Great lunch of fish less tacos. Wanted to eat the whole of the salad bar.

Wonderful staff too.

Pros: Amazing range of food, Tasty and healthy, Great, well informed staff

Good place! - Edit

Their deli "meats" are really delicious and the tunaless tuna is very good as well, especially with mayo.
the crew there is very nice and allows you to sample everything before you buy! it is quite pricey though

Pros: delicious

Cons: expensive

Good but as much gimmick as innovativation. - Edit

They have a deli counter with several mock meat items. You can buy by weight or have them make you a meal using these items. It's good but not great, and not as innovative as the hype would have you believe.

Cute concept - Edit

This really is a vegetarian butchery. There are display cases with "veg proteins". Burgers, sausages and flavoured up mock meats like teriyaki chicken, tuna salad from chickpeas, etc. Prepared salads are also available. Also available are takeaway meals, juices, and they have grocery items like vegenaise, tempeh/tofu, and ice cream/popsicle treats in the freezer section. The butcher part is paid by weight. Limited seating, this place is meant for takeaway.

I highly recommend the chicken salad. Their juices are actually really good (the pineapple with a hint of mint was genius. They told me they use a cod-press juicer so it can last longer. Not long until it went into my belly! I also highly recommend their prepared boxes. I tried the Indonesian tofu which was fabulous with the mango salsa and the chickpea wraps with the mango tamarind chutney was also incredible. Lots of fresh greens. Highly recommended.

Cons: limited seating
