CAMDEN | NW1
There is a healthy alternative to Camden's chicken market stalls and fast food outlets, and it's called Dou Dou.
A Chinese and Thai-inspired restaurant, these guys serve nothing but vegan dishes buffet style, all day every day, for the princely sum of £5.90 for lunch, or £6.90 for dinner and weekends.
All the flavours you'd expect to see here are well represented, but through the medium of vegetables, grains and pulses. Think sweet and sour 'chicken', black bean 'beef', curries, fried rice, tempura, 'prawn' crackers, 'prawn' toast, spring rolls, noodles, minced 'pork', and a load more. They've even got roast potatoes. Sure, why not.
Whilst the food may be vegan, it certainly does not lack in flavour or choice. You get two hours free reign for your money, and with starters that include soup, around 15 buffet dishes, and dessert in the form of fresh fruit, you won't struggle to eat your fill. And if you don't have time to eat in, you can get a take away box for just £3.50. Note: cash only.
