Description Plant based Street food is exactly what it says, classic Street foods from around the world, recreated from 100% plant based ingredients.

We present our masterpieces in palm leaf bowls/plates. As in India huge amounts of palm leaves naturally shed, fall to the ground and litter the streets, and then to dispose of them they get burned.

In fact we have thrived as a species so well that we are now faced with a dilemma, one of the things that has enabled the species to grow at the rate at which it has, has now become totally unsustainable, animal products, and the farming of animals, are no lon
