    Judging by the people queuing up to eat a pricey Honest burger without a seat in the Villaaaage today, I think not.

    It's not made by them though - it's made by Beyond Meat. And if I'm paying £11 to £12.50 for a burger, I'd like to sit down and enjoy it on a plate.

    Good on them for outsourcing to some expert vegan burger makers rather than an in-house half-arsed effort. They're spending extra cash to deliver something for their customers. And I say that as a militant meat eater.

    I never figured why a vegan, or vegetarian would want to eat an ersatz meat patty.
    What's wrong with a nice fat juicy grilled mushroom ?

    E2a is it possible some cannot forego conspicuous consumption of something instagrammable with a hefty price tag.

    Nothing but they get boring after a while. And seeing as we live in a meat eating world, it's easier for people turning veggie/vegan to eat familiar looking/tasting food. I haven't eaten meat for decades but I enjoy eating vegan/veggie sausage sandwiches, burgers, mince or whatever as well as other non-meat foods. It's better to have more choice!

    PS I have no interest in Instagramming anything I eat.

    I’d imagine for those veggies and vegans who would want to avoid all kinds of cross contamination however small, their burger being prepared in a vegan environment would be good news. You have to wonder how many omnivore restaurants offering veggie options have two sets of grills, ovens etc to ensure veggie food never gets near non-veggie food.

    It's one of the reasons I'm rarely keen on eating veggie fast food in meat-tastic restaurants. The smell of cooking flesh can put me off a bit too.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    Jackson Boxer knows his onions. Comes from south London restaurant royalty (Dad ran a deli in Bonnington Square, brothet is the Frank of ‘Franks’, Grandmother is Arabella Boxer the cookery writer and he opened Brunswick House in Vauxhall).

    Good point about the new converts but isn't the choice thing capitalist programming that could well do with binning ?

    Some do, just saying.

    I don't know any of these people but are there private schools/royalty/city boys etc involved? Most nu-Brixton ventures seem to be fired by these types.

    Not really. Point about moving on from capitalism to communism is not to reduce choice but to make it affordable for all.

    I find some of the new vegetarian / vegan products interesting. I think it time to move on from idea that being vegetarian or vegan one must limit ones taste choices.

    Food is a socially constructed thing. Its manipulating natural products. So I'm all for mass produced vegan/ vegetarian alternatives to the meat industry. Which in an era of climate change is harmful use of earth's resources.

    To be fair they could be using that as an example of a successful concept that's worked in Brixton so what could the next one be!

    Wrong kind of "concept."

    It's not a 'concept' though, is it? It's a traditional business that has been around for centuries.

    There's been a fire on Brixton Hill at the Lisboa Grill, about 30 minutes ago. Just saw a video on Twitter from @food_pix
