‘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
