Specialist producers of vegan junk food, Biff’s Jack Shack are out to prove being vegan doesn’t mean you have to miss out on tasty, indulgent junk food. With a soft launch on January 17th followed by a full roll-out eight days later, visitors to the Eat 17 store can choose take-away options including crispy fried jackfruit burger, ‘chicken wings’ and signature toppings such as home-made vegan ‘bacon’ jam.
Walthamstow was where it all began for Eat 17 back in 2006. This was where co-founders Chris and James launched their first grocery store and bistro. Yet they wanted to be more than an average store. They wanted to sell and promote quality, unique, local and seasonal food at everyday prices. Now each of their stores stocks over 4,000 products including local producers and food freshly made by Eat 17. Welcoming London based Biff’s Jack Shack continues the ethos of Eat 17 to introduce interesting and unique foods and flavours to their customers, in a store which already has its own pastry kitchen creating great treats.
Biff’s Jack Shack aims to prove vegan food can be fun, interesting and just as ‘filthy’ when it comes to junk food options. Founded in 2016 by Biff Burrows and Christa Bloom the concept was based on finding a worthy, indulgent vegan option to some of the disappointing burger choices which existed at the time. They set up Biff’s Jack Shack x Boxpark Shoreditch in London offering a menu of burgers, wings, fries and toppings they believe will excite meat-eaters as well as vegans. Their takeaway in Eat 17 in Walthamstow, East London will give the opportunity for even more people to be inspired by their vegan junk food.
The cornerstone of the burgers and wings made by Biff’s Jack Shack is the tropical fruit jackfruit. Braising it and double dipping in a panko crumb before frying provides a unique product with an ultimate meat-like texture. Add to this their ‘bacon’ jam and the only vegan poutine in London, this new venture in Eat 17 could open many more eyes to just how good and flavoursome this style of food can be. Meat lovers too should give it a go.
