KIN Café; Plant-Based and Vegan Eatery in London’s Fitzrovia
Although I am a meat eater I appreciate that vegan cuisine has come along leaps and bounds in recent years, and since I have gone dairy-free I very much appreciate vegan menu items which fit with my diet and my love of good food. The menu at KIN made my mouth water! Vegan waffles anyone? Yes please!
KIN in London's fashionable Fitrovia was born out of a desire to indulge in honest, fresh, and healthy food, and most vitally, in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. The colourful plant-based and vegetarian eatery was built on the strong principle that vegan is the future, offering tasty food, great coffee, served by lovely people.
At KIN, the upmost importance is placed on flavour – if the dish isn’t delicious, it doesn’t make it to the menu!
To this end KIN strive to offer distinctive vegan dishes that will keep you coming back time and time again. To keep the menu interesting and packed with flavour, KIN’s talented chef creates unique dishes, continually changing the menu, ensuring there is always something new to feast upon.
Alongside offering top vegan dishes, KIN has with a strong vegetarian and gluten free selection and raw options too, all made sustainably with ethically sourced ingredients. Seating 24 inside and 16 outside, accompanied by a pre-order and takeaway service, KIN’s delicious menu is easily accessible for all.
KIN’s crowd-pleasing classics include the tasty Benedict to start the day, a Gnocchi & Sunblush Tomato Salad for lunch, and a tempting Peanut Butter Blondie or Hazelnut Cookie to finish, accompanied by fine quality coffee – which KIN are deeply passionate about – or fresh, organic, juices.
Also on offer are a range of alcoholic beverages from their range of organic, vegan and gluten-free wines, craft beers, ciders and spirits.
Everything brought into KIN, whether it is the fresh ingredients, coffee beans, wines, beers, or even their
biodegradable take-away packaging, has been chosen with careful consideration to the environmental and
KIN receives daily deliveries of fresh fruit and veg to uphold their sustainability mission. In fact, all fresh
ingredients are organic! KIN’s quality Mayini coffee comes from organic, shade-grown, Peruvian beans hand-picked by indigenous Mayini communities. The proceeds of the coffee bean sales facilitate the locals to combat harmful rainforest deforestation threatening their communities.
Further to this, the proceeds of KIN’s organic and vegan house wine contribute to go to the Born Free
Foundation who strive protect wild species, keeping them where they belong, and safeguard animals from
KIN, where possible, use suppliers who make a positive impact, not only environmentally but socially,
including training young people and other charitable works. KIN intends to set the benchmark for ethical and sustainable restaurants in London.
KIN has had such success with their daytime offering that they will be launching their exquisitely developed evening menu at in the beginning of July 2021. There will be a 25% discount for diners for the first 2 weeks of their dinner service.
Long-term, KIN strive to build a chain of successful yet innovative plant-based and vegan eateries. With the passion of Owner Mohammad Malekzadeh, his wife and cousin Reza Malekzadeh, together they hope to build a brand of delicious, sustainable, and ethical food for people all around London.
