‘Babs recognised for delicious plant-based fare

A Glasgow restaurant has placed in the top 10 list of vegan kebabs in the UK.

The charity PETA has finalised its list of the top 10 places to find vegan kebabs in the UK. It includes tasty plant-based options that are available via delivery and eateries that offer gift cards that can be used when it’s safe for them to re-open.

On the list is Glasgow restaurant ‘Babs on West Nile Street – whose kebabs can be dropped off at your door. Its gourmet grilled delights include the vegan steak shish – which is served with beetroot hummus, paprika rice, shredded lettuce, coal-grilled aubergine, red-pepper ajvar, and house pickles – and a vegan steak skewer.

PETA director of vegan corporate projects Dawn Carr said: ‘The vegan steak at Babs delivers a moreish meaty flavour with zero cruelty. PETA’s top 10 list of vegan kebabs in the UK will thrill diners with classic-tasting cuisine that doesn’t involve the grilled flesh of gentle animals.’

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that ‘animals are not ours to eat’ – notes that everyone who goes vegan spares the lives of nearly 200 animals every year. In addition, each person who goes vegan reduces his or her own risk of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, strokes, cancer, and numerous other health concerns. Vegans also have significantly lower carbon footprints than meat-eaters do, as animal agriculture is a major producer of the greenhouse-gas emissions that cause climate change.

Rounding out PETA’s list are ‘Babs in Glasgow, I Am Döner in Leeds, The Big Kebabski in Devon, The Filthy Vegan in Nottingham, The Botanist in Newcastle, Seitan’s Kebab in Manchester, Döner Summer in York, Chelsea FC Vegan Kitchen in London, and What The Pitta! in Brighton.
