Vegan MoFo 2013 - Football Food Sunday
Wow, Vegan MoFo is kicking off and I'm bringing back an old favourite for ya, Football Food Sunday. It's still only pre-season but that's not gonna stop me from throwing down with some epic football food.
Yesterday my friend Sal and I went to Clapham's Venn Street Market to check out some of the best Football Food London has to offer. New kids on the block The Mighty Fork opened their stall with a bang earlier this summer and they've been doing a roaring trade in vegan hot dogs ever since.
*Sadly The Mighty Fork has now closed*
When we rocked up yesterday lunch time this was the only stall at the market with a queue and we couldn't wait to join the line and get ordering.
I went for the Sauerkraut Dog which comes topped with, you guessed it, sauerkraut, as well as ketchup and American mustard.
Sal ordered The Big Chilli which comes topped with black bean chilli, jalapeños, diced red onions and American Mustard.
Both dogs were delicious, we loved The Fork's use of 9" tofu wieners rather than a heftier seitan sausage and the choices of toppings were great. They also make a Brew Dog with hot beer sauce, sautéed onions, jalapeños & American mustard as well as a Yasai Dog which is topped with Japanese yasai curry sautéed onions, wasabi mayo and spring onions.
These inventive flavours alongside fast and friendly service are sure to make The Mighty Fork a huge success.
Venn Street Market hosts two more totally vegan stalls on a Saturday, Ms Cupcake...
...and the Vegan Soda Bread stand who sell the most delicious chocolate mud cake in London, if not the world.
We ended our day out with a couple of drinks at a craft beer bar opposite the market. What a rad day and I even made it home in time to lose a quiz!
I am well and truly back in the MoFo game over here and I can't wait to continue with Mac 'n Cheese Monday tomorrow.
