Hip Hop Vegans: Return of the Mac? | No Beef Ldn (@nobeefldn ‏)Pop Up Review

As a Hip-Hop Vegan, when I heard of No Beef Ldn it was like a match made in heav­en. It fell in com­plete align­ment with our eth­ics, brand and vis­ion – pro­mot­ing hip hop and well­being as an entity is what we are about. Mak­ing vegan­ism feel more access­ible to every­one is essen­tial and ‘No Beef Ldn’ is def­in­itely mak­ing pos­it­ive steps toward that.

The menus clas­sic twists on bur­gers and sides includ­ing A$AP Guacy and ‘Return of the Mac‘n’Cheez ’ made the pop up a lot more fun (food + puns = life) and DJ Hen­nie V bring­ing out all the old school tun­es just turned it into a vibe. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I really loved the ‘potluck’ feel of the event – there were plates of food being passed up and down the table cre­at­ing it into a com­munity. Like a buf­fet, but bet­ter.

There wasn’t a menu or intro­duc­tions to the plates of food but to give you the low down — there was a tasty chick­en bur­ger with avo­cado, sir­acha mayo (some­times ‘fake’ meat products are a no no in my books, but this was spot on) and another bur­ger that reminded me of seit­an with pickles, sprouts, toma­toes and pickles. Trust me, sprouts in a bur­ger is sur­pris­ingly good..

The thyme in their mac and cheese brought out comd nice fla­vour. Of course, I have to men­tion – ‘I got Fries on it’ (curly fries and sweet potato), curly fries are my child­hood sweet­heart. I could eat them every day. The best thing about hav­ing the pop up ‘potluck’ style was that I had a plate full of Mac n Cheese, fries and bur­gers – all at the same time. It was food­ie heav­en.

Let’s just say I rolled home that night.

It was a great night full of food, vegan vibes and great people. Pop down next time – you don’t want to miss it.

Love,

Omo Eats (curly fries)
