We too have days with criminal hangovers and an occasional Saturday night in when we want, need fast food delivered to our doors. Cater our vegan fast food needs, PLEASE!
There are a few god-like restaurants who are flying the delicious vegan fast food flag in Dublin. YOU NEED TO CHECK THIS GOODNESS OUT:
*IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER (don’t @ me. All vegan fast food is good food)
Get ready for your seaside nostalgia to be through the roof;
Hidden away in EatYard lies vegans best kept secret. Yep, Vish is here to bring you back to a saltier time of battered cod and chips.
With the ‘vish fillet’ being made from cassava, wild seaweed and battered with love, it genuinely tastes like the real deal. With a dollop of mustard aioli, sapphires and triple cooked chips, you will be reminded how fish are friends and not food.
They also offer cauliflower wings, carrot dogs and the most stunning deserts.

SOVA VEGAN BUTCHER
Brunch used to be fun – but if I’m honest, it can be frustrating for a vegan, especially when the only edible item on the menu is plain oats.
Is it too much to ask for a vegan pulled pork bap? Sova Vegan Butcher thinks not.
Open for brunch, lunch dinner, this restaurant welcomes mouth-watering vegans and their mates to show how delicious and nutritious food can be without animal produce.
Comprised of oyster mushrooms, red cabbage and their divine house made BBQ sauce mayo, their pulled pork is heavenly! It’s that kind of sambo you dig your teeth into and the flavour pours out leaving your eyes rolling to the gods.
4) Umi FalafelView this post on Instagram
For those of you who are screaming, “falafels aren’t fast food!”, you cannot question this selection until you try it.
Honestly, every time I have the Palestinian Pocket from UMI I’m gagged . It’s just a big juicy hot mess filled with all the goods, what’s not to love? If you get in there before 6pm you can get it with perfectly crisped Batata Haras (a.k.a boojee wedges) with a coffee for €9 – literally bargain town.
TOP TIP: Get extra humus, because you can never have too much.
