Vegan street food business serving innovative and healthy twists on comfort food classics. Pop-up supper clubs, festival catering & events. Bristol, UK.
Kabala Kitchen was set up in late 2016 by duo Alice and Richard, 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 the first half of 2017, we began street food trading in May 2017, appearing at various food and farmer’s markets, festivals and events. We 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 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 to “veganise” them, resulting in an often unusual twist on the classic. As a result, the dishes are exciting, healthier and inclusive: they are suitable for herbivores and omnivores alike.
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 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’. 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.”
-Alice Kabala, co-founder
If you want to have our signature comfort food at your event, we are available to book throughout the year, and can cater for 30 people, or 300! Our street-food is a unique and affordable alternative to buffets and sit-down suppers, and is perfect for festival-style weddings, summer garden get-togethers, and evening parties.
