Vish Shop, the vegan chip shop from Veginity founder Mark Senn, has opened on Dorset Street, with Vish and Chips, Carrot Dogs and Cauliflower Wings on the menu. It's a one minute walk from big brother restaurant Veginity, which opened a permanent site in June, after starting as a food truck in Portobello.
Vish Shop had most recently been operating at street food market Eatyard beside The Bernard Shaw, and had gained a very loyal following for their vegan version of fish and chips, so when Veginity opened without the cassava and seaweed substitute 'vish' (and the highly addictive BBQ sriracha cauliflower wings) on the menu we were wondering why. Now we know it was all part of a grand plan to turn the North inner city into a vegan dining destination.
Vish Shop are currently open from 12:00 - 22:00 Thursday - Saturday, and from 12:00 - 20:00 on Sundays. They're hoping to extend to Wednesday opening, and to soon be available on a food delivery service. We're also told they're considering extending to breakfast if the demand is there.
Between Beast Eatery opening last week, and the newly reopened Takeaveg in the Moore Street Mall, it's a very good time to be a vegan in Dublin. We here there's more to come, so watch this plant-based space.
