ABOUT US

Kabala Kitchen was set up in late 2016 by duo Alice (who was working as a chef in Cambridge) and Richard (who was working as a museum attendant in London). The pair decided to move back to Bristol (Alice’s hometown) to set up Kabala Kitchen, and were for a time known as ‘Planted’ before a name change in summer 2017.

After a run of three successful pop-up supper clubs in Long Ashton Community Centre, they began street food trading in May 2017, appearing at various food and farmer’s markets, festivals and events. They now trade regularly at Harbourside Market and BS5 Market, with occasional guest appearances at St. Nicholas Market, Tobacco Factory Sunday Market and other one-off events around the South-West.

Our aim is to design and create dishes which are based on familiar, ‘comfort food’ favourites. These dishes that inspire the menu are often the most meat- and dairy-filled, so there is a certain amount of experimentation and innovation involved, resulting in an often unusual twist on the classic. As a result, the dishes are exciting, healthier and inclusive: they are suitable for vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Our style of cooking and serving is informal and straightforward, and we aspire to deliver efficient and friendly service to all of our customers.

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 lower our carbon 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’. All of our cooking scraps and food waste is taken away to be anaerobically digested, and all of our other waste is properly sorted and recycled to ensure as little as possible ends up in landfill.”
