CookDaily is back in east London a month after announcing closure

Related tags: Vegan, QSR

Recently-closed vegan restaurant CookDaily has moved into the site previously occupied by another plant-based restaurant in London Fields.

The pioneering restaurant, fronted by founder Chef King, launched in the courtyard of community hub and start-up accelerator Fount London on 27 October.

It replaces The Fields restaurant, which also served a predominantly vegan menu with a fine dining spin, and closed down on 7 October.

Already cementing itself as a hub for the vegan community, the launch of the new CookDaily was attended by Ed 'Earthling' Winters, who has just launched an east London vegan restaurant himself, called Unity Diner, in Hoxton. 

CookDaily’s new home, at arch 338 Westgate Street, has many similarities to its initial iteration at Shoreditch’s Boxpark.

The menu comprises the restaurant’s signature list of noodle and rice bowls, alongside a new side dish of teriyaki ‘chikn’ bites. The dish has been developed over a series of pop ups at Vegan Nights street food events in east London.  

The restaurant will also continue to sell its popular ‘Vegan- No Blood No Bones’ merchandise, alongside a new range of vegan-branded clothing that will be exclusive to the restaurant.

Speaking to BigHospitality after the closing of the Boxpark site, founder King said that he had taken the decision to move on to new projects to escape the contraints that come with being part of a development such as Boxpark.

At the time, King outlined plans to launch his standalone restaurant in January 2019, in a larger space allowing his business to produce more podcasts, merchandise and a radio station.
