‘we want TO make vegan FOOD cool’
Former MIC sisters Lucy and Tiffany Watson have launched their first vegan restaurant, Tell Your Friends, and they plan to be game-changers
Hey girls, tell us about the restaurant.
Tell Your Friends is our vegan restaurant located in Parsons Green, London. It has a fully plant-based menu and we offer breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as all-day brunches at weekends. We’ll also be introducing Sunday roasts and have a grab-and-go section for people to get healthy vegan food on the move.
Why is being vegan so popular now?
We think because information is more accessible to everyone, we’re all able to research and find out where our food is coming from, and the health benefits or scares of certain foods. People are becoming more aware of the importance of eating the right food and protecting the environment and the welfare of animals.
What’s the biggest vegan myth you’d like to bust?
The idea that you can’t get protein as part of a vegan diet. You absolutely can, and it’s so easy to have a vegan diet rich in protein. You just have to do your research into which plant-based foods are high in protein. There are lots.
What’s your fave snack post-workout?
Cacao and date energy balls. Where do you love to eat, apart from your own place? We love Farmacy Kitchen in Notting Hill for brunch, Wulf & Lamb in Chelsea for lunch and Fed By Water in East London for dinner. What’s your vision for Tell Your Friends? Our vision for Tell Your Friends is to show people how delicious and healthy vegan food can be. Tell Your Friends is open now, 175 New King’s Road, London, SW6 4SW
