Essence Cuisine Tricolour quinoa, layers of courgette and tomato and raw pad Thai, made from kelp noodles and marinated kale are just three dishes on the Essence Cuisine menu, a Shoreditch restaurant serving meat-free, plant-based food. Vegans will love this minimalist restaurant with its rough cement plaster walls, folding tables - designed by Swedish architect Andreas Bozarth Fornell - and the absence of animal products on the menu. But it's not just for vegans. All dishes are dairy, gluten, and refined sugar free so the menu caters for healthy eating fans too. It's been developed with celebrity chef Matthew Kenney, who has gained cult status in the industry with Forbes describing him as, "one of the top entrepreneurs in his field".
