With a loyal fanbase already at their venue at Hatch on Oxford Road, vegan street food specialist Herbivorous opened their first bricks and mortar venue in October 2021, in Withington.
Known for their vibrant, unique and non-traditional take on vegan food, Herbivorous owners Robyn and Damian started out with the goal of bringing exciting vegan food to the mainstream and are now leading the way in a Manchester vegan food revolution. Having toured the UK at some of the nation’s biggest festivals in their bright green vintage Horsebox, Herbivorous has been serving up incredible vegan food from venues around the city.
Their independent and colorful restaurant serves delicious vegan comfort food that is both ethically sourced and sustainable.Robyn and Damian create almost all their dishes and products in house - making their seitan and sauces from scratch – the result of over five years of menu development by the pair.
Guests can expect an amazing range of plant-based burgers, flatbreads and sandwiches – from the new Tandoori “Lamb” Koftas to their classic Big Kahuna Burger and Fried “Chicken”. There’s a whole section dedicated to awesome loaded fries topped with plant-based toppings like Thai Basil Beef, and decadent Philly Cheese Steak.
Grazing and sharing is encouraged so the sides and sharers range is diverse and well-considered including Buffalo Wings, Loaded Onion Bhaji Rings and Sweet and Sour “Chicken” Balls.
Desserts include sticky toffee pudding and creamy cheesecake bringing the perfect portfolio of treats to welcome in the colder months ahead. All delicious, and all completely vegan.
Plant-based cocktails includes Rum Punch and Lemon Bonbon whilst beers and ciders are all sourced locally from the likes of Burton Road Brewery, Pomona Island and Bolton’s Red Bank Cider.
Herbivorous also offer local home deliveries.
It’s all about comfort food that is better for you and better for the planet - so good that dishes are enjoyed by vegans and non-vegans alike, leading to Herbivorous coining the new catchphrase “Vegan Food Envy”.
The vibrant and colourful festival-inspired venue is open seven days a week, serving dinner from 5pm on Monday to Thursday, and opening for lunch and dinner from Friday – Sunday.
