The menu includes several options for burgers (including a black bean and corn burger), but it's worth trying the 'Double Mooshie' - two grilled seitan burgers in buns with lettuce, tomato and onion served with chips or salad if you prefer. If you're feeling adventurous, Mooshies also has some interesting twists on more traditional dishes such as their 'Sloppy Joe' which replaces meat with tofu soya chunks in a sauce made from tomatoes, red pepper paste, apple juice concentrate & brown's tasty!

As well as being 100% vegan-friendly Mooshies also offers great deals on drinks too: besides classic soft drinks like Coca Cola, there's many alcoholic beverages available including wine by glass or bottle. And if you're feeling thirsty try one of their awesome milkshakes made with almond milk ice cream topped off with chocolate sauce & sprinkles!

Adopting a festival feel, the location of Vegan Nights currently stretches comfortably in excess of 50,000ft² of the Truman Brewery and boasts a huge outdoor food court and nightclub. With a curated line-up of around 40 food stalls serving a selection of plant-based street food, Vegan Nights really is the best place for lifelong vegans to socialise. Come for the food, stay for the (vegan) beer, DJs and authentic atmosphere.
