We’re just over a week into Veganuary, and if you’re struggling for inspiration, this might be just the thing to keep you on the veg.

One of our favourite street food spots GRUB is hosting its ninth instalment of ExtraVEGANza this month, boasting a whopping great celebration of all things plant-based. 


GRUB has been flying the flag for vegan eats since the first edition of the dairy-free festival in 2017, so you’re guaranteed to have the pick of the best when it comes to the city’s plant-based offerings.

Traders at the event include Afflecks favourites Desert Island Dumplings, Nina’s Taco Truck, Seitan’s Kebab, Munchie Mummy’s Vegan Bakery and vegan fast food connoisseurs Wholesome Junkies.

The fun doesn’t stop at the food though. There will also be a 100% vegan bar to enjoy, offering wine, cocktails, spirits, soft drinks and beer from the best vegan-friendly local breweries. 

Head down to GRUB’s home at the Red Bank arches from Friday 26 January to Sunday 28 January for good vegan vibes.
