The Vegan Butcherie in Woodstock: vegan comfort food even meat-eaters will love
Vegan chops, steaks, sausages, salami, “chicken” skewers and even ribs
Husband and wife team Romeo and Vero Mujinga, who have been in the vegan meat business for the last couple of years, opened their first restaurant in Woodstock in August. From pizza and pasta to burgers, boerewors and chops, the Vegan Butcherie offers a delicious and healthy variety of vegan meat alternatives. It’s comfort food even the most ardent meat lovers will enjoy.
Their vegan meat is made from mushrooms, soya, gluten-free flour and a variety of aromatic spices and their aim is to create tasty plant-based takeaways for those who enjoy the texture and taste of meat but without the cruelty. Vegan Butcherie’s products are popular among Cape Town’s vegan community, and they supply vegan restaurants and grocery stores all across the country.
“I've seen the demand for their food on social media, where many have said that it has changed the way vegans braai,” writes vegan blogger Shaun Robertson. “They’ve shown off their plant-based alternatives to their non-vegan friends and their minds have been blown by how tasty, smokey and ‘meaty’ it is.”
FROM VEGAN STEAK TO RIBS
The Vegan Butcherie serves a creamy risotto that is perfectly slow-cooked in vegan butter with mushrooms. How about a juicy steak served with creamy mashed potato and green beans, tossed in vegan butter and peppercorn or mushroom sauce? You can also grab a gourmet sandwich or wrap with the topping of your choice, chicken kebabs or even vegan ribs or chops.
