What is it?
Nestled towards the bottom end of Shields Road in Byker, Junk It Up is dream for a vegan who has no desire to wait for some very tasty grub. Offering naughty, but nevertheless plant-based fast food, it’s become a must visit for any treat-seeking soul who has opted for a meat and dairy-free diet.
The takeaway now has a big city centre sibling on Pink Lane where you can enjoy restaurant surroundings and an alcoholic tipple too.
Why is it smashing?
Boasting a 100% vegan menu, Junk It Up firmly dispels any illusions about vegan food being all about clean-eating. Serving up such delights as Southern Fried Fricken in a variety of guises, as well as a crowd of kebabs including Donner, Tandoori and Bourbon BBQ and a box full of pizzas – topped with vegan cheese of course – you really don’t have to be vegan to appreciate its talents.
