Vegan food is at the literal bleeding edge of culinary science, but before there were heme-infused burgers, pea protein mince and steaks made of specially cultivated soy chunks pounded into the vague shape of a cow by a man in a lab coat, there was the humble jackfruit.

The flaky, stringy, melting flesh of the jackfruit is one of the most versatile things ever to fall out of a tree, and as well as famously making a decent stand-in as pig-friendly pulled pork, its also found applications as a meatless alternative to beef patties.

WHO? Co-founders Biff Burrows and Christa Bloom started selling filthy vegan burgers out of the back of a van in 2017, before moving into a permanent spot in Shoreditchs Boxpark a year later, and into Walthamstown and Homerton after that.
