Mao Chow is a tiny Chinese spot in London Fields making some of the tastiest all-vegan food in London. Their sesame dan dan noodles with soy mince, cucumber, and a sauce that we’d definitely enforce the 30-second rule for if we dropped it on the floor, are better than a lot of meat versions we’ve had in the past. Similarly, their handmade dumplings, mushroom bao, and gong bao asparagus are all dishes worth travelling for. The space is walk-in only, though squeeze-in would be more accurate, as it only seats 12. You can grab it to takeaway, but we’d recommend playing the long game and eating in, as you can also BYOB.
