It’s a sad day for plant-based foodies.
Popular vegan street food restaurant VeganKO has just announced they have had to unexpectedly move out of their Kyle Street premises.
Taking to Instagram to make the announcement over the weekend, the restaurant has had to move out at short notice, and closed up-shop at Kyle Street for good yesterday (Jan 9th).
“It was a nice ride at the Kyle Street premises but unfortunately we have to move out with very short notice which leaves us open until tomorrow. It’s a temporary thing until we find better solution with sitting area and hopefully (an) even better location!
Thank you all for your continuous support and making right choices while choosing your junk fast food. We will miss you but only for a short time!”
VeganKO, which started initially as a food truck across from McDonalds in Turners Cross in 2019, made headlines when they first arrived as one of the first vegan fast-food vendors in Cork.
Offering plant-based alternatives to fan favourites like cheeseburgers, hot dogs, kebabs, and even loaded garlic and cheese fries, VeganKO quickly took off, and not just with vegan customers. According to owners Nino Huzjak and Martina Ratkovic, there is a 50/50 mix of vegan/non-vegan customers opting to experiment with vegan alternative that taste just like the real thing.
The Kyle Street premises, which only opened in 2020, has closed its doors for good on January 9th. Here’s hoping they secure a new forever home soon!
