Vegan street food business serving innovative and healthy twists on comfort food classics. Available to cater for weddings, parties, wellness retreats and workplace lunches. Bristol, UK.
Kabala Kitchen is owned and managed by Bristol-based chef Alice Kabala. After spending three years as kitchen manager and head chef at a highly acclaimed yoga teacher training and retreat centre, she launched Kabala Kitcen in 2016 with then business partner Richard George.
After a run of three successful pop-up supper clubs in the first half of 2017 (under previous business name ‘Planted’), they began street food trading in May 2017, appearing at various food markets, festivals and events. Kabala Kitchen now trades regularly at Harbourside Market and Temple Quay Market, as well as catering for numerous private events such as weddings, parties and wellness retreats.
“Our aim is to create dishes which are based on familiar, ‘comfort food’ classics, but with an innovative and healthy twist. We take inspiration from a variety of different cuisines, and offer a creative twist on favourites such as quesadillas, hot dogs, ramen noodles, carbonara and more. Almost every element of our food is handmade from scratch in our little kitchen in Ashton.
We’re a proud holder of a GOLD ‘Bristol Eating Better’ award, achieving 97% of the required actions to ensure that we offer healthy food options, and promote sustainability within the business. We’re also Crumbs Finalists, being selected as a nominee in the ‘Roaming Kitchens’ category at the 2019 Crumbs awards.
Sustainability is important to us and at the core of what we do. As our menu is 100% plant-based, it uses much fewer of our planet’s finite resources to produce. We seek out local suppliers for our produce, and design our menu around seasonal ingredients to further lower our carbon and water footprint. All of our disposables are recyclable or compostable (never plastic), and we encourage consumers to bring their own reusable container by donating 5% of the dish price to Avon Wildlife Trust’s community food project ‘Feed Bristol’. ”
-Alice Kabala, co-founder
