It’s rare that a specialist all-vegan restaurant makes as big and as positive (sorry, By Chloe) an impact on London’s eating scene as Tofu Vegan has. The new Chinese spot on Upper Street is heaving seven days a week, as everyone tucks into house-made silken tofu in Szechuan sauce, mock meats like Chongqing chicken, dim sum, and much more plant-based fare that may surprise you with how impressive it is. More fool us, we guess. The space is big, so much so that it spills out onto the pavement, much like the sizzling fish-fragrant sauce that will likely fall from your greedy spoonfuls, and, considering the scarcity of actually good places to eat on the Angel-end of Upper Street, it’s no wonder this place is as bustling as it is.
