There’s no shortage of plant-based burger restaurants in the capital but Oowee is one of the best, known for its reliably-tasty chicken and beef style patties served with all the trimmings. Oh, and you just can’t visit without trying a side of buttery Marmite fries. Here’s everything you need to know about the Oowee Vegan London branch.
Oowee began as an American-style burger joint in Bristol back in 2016 and opened its first fully vegan eatery in 2018. The restaurant quickly rose to fame and has won multiple awards, including being named Deliveroo’s 2020 Restaurant of the Year. Oowee now also has branches in Brighton and in Dalston, London, where it serves delicious seitan and Beyond Meat burgers, dirty fries, sides and salads.

What I love about Oowee
I’ve visited Oowee in Bristol and London and each branch has a relaxed, diner-style vibe. I love that the menu is short and simple, with a choice of either seitan or Beyond Meat burgers, both of which I’ve sampled. My favourite was the Chick’n Kiev Burger, which featured a thick slab of seitan in a crispy coating and with a good garlicky flavour, not too overpowering. They don’t skimp on portion sizes or sauces and toppings, so be prepared to get messy!
If you go, you have to order a portion of fries and if you’re a Marmite fiend like me (what kind of vegan isn’t?!) then you’ll need to try the Marmite butter option, which comes sprinkled with chopped chives. I have yet to try the shrimp (which gets rave online reviews) but there’s always another trip to Oowee on the horizon.
