Brightons first all-vegan kebab shop opened its doors today.
Masses of people waited outside What the Pitta this morning to taste their famous vegan kebabs.
The Turkish food chain gave away 100 free doner kebabs to the first lucky customers who walked through their door.
“Was well worth the wait”
Turkish pizzas, cous cous salad boxes and sticky baklava were also on offer at the Brighton branch today.
What the Pitta is owned by two British-Turkish friends, Cem Yildiz and Rojdan Gul.
Yildiz and Gul opened their first pop-up in Shoreditch in August 2016. Now they have permanent branches in Shoreditch, Camden, Croydon and Brighton.
The kebabs are priced at £7.95. They are stuffed with non-GMO soya pieces & sauces, with the bread being handmade on site.
Neena Findlay was in Brighton today and she told us: “The queue looked huge, I was on my own but chatted to a few people, there was a nice jovial atmosphere.”
She continued: “We waited approx 45 mins in the end but it was well worth the wait for my first vegan doner…top marks to What the Pitta!”
Brighton is already popular with vegans offering lots of vegan eateries and vegan-friendly restaurants. Including the award-winning plant based Italian restaurant, Purezza.
What the Pitta is located on East Street, Brighton. You can follow them on their Instagram page for all updates.
