Casual Fine Dining with Stem + Glory
Tucked away on a quiet side-street behind Smithfield Market, Stem + Glory boasts an array of tasty vegan food created by a talented team of chefs. Alongside the harmonious white walls and green accents, you’ll walk into the subtly fragrant aroma of fresh vegetables which are perpetually being chopped, diced and peeled in the open kitchen. Stem + Glory emphasises on food that is tasty first and vegan second, rather than the other way around, but also make sure you have your cameras ready because you'll be taking a lot of #Instaworthy photos.

Fried Chicken at the Temple of Seitan
Growing up in the suburbs of Melbourne, Rebecca McGuinness worked at a KFC as a teenager and liked the taste of meat. So when she became vegan at 19, she started learning to make mock meats herself. Since she moved to London as a legal secretary, she noticed an explosion of the vegan scene and decided to embark on creating the Temple of Seitan with her husband. Suggested in the name, the "chicken" in question is made from seitan, a wheat protein with a meat-like texture and it just tastes amazing!
