The butcher, on Islington Park Street, London, will be open to the public from 1st November – which is celebrated as World Vegan Day.

After becoming London’s first vegan diner, Rudy’s has donned the butcher’s apron to become the UK’s first completely vegan butcher in North London.

Rudy’s Vegan Butcher, situated on the corner of Islington Park Street, will open its doors to customers on World Vegan Day, 1st November.

The store, which looks just like a traditional butcher, will sell vegan versions of bacon, chicken, and turkey made from soya and seitan.

According to Rudy’s, customers can choose from an array of foods, including homemade pastrami, dirty burger patties, cheeze sauce, and chilli-non-carne, as well as a rack of jack, lobstah salad, meatballs, chick’n lover pate, and shredded BBQ pulled porc.
