Cook Daily’s maestro has big plans for vegan bowls

Vegan restaurant sensation Cook Daily will return to its Boxpark Shoreditch home after closing its first permanent restaurant in London Fields. Owner King Cook — King Senathit — announced the news on Instagram last week, posting a jubilant photo outside the new unit.

Cook told Eater in a profile last year that:

“It’s true that when people think of veganism, they think of white, middle-class and we are changing that. It is what it is and it’s been like that for a long time. I don’t feel that much about it. I’m doing something about it.

I don’t have to change to be vegan. I don’t have to start yoga. I don’t have to start juice cleansing. I can just be me and not have dead animals as a snack. I always push the vegan agenda. I’m representing for veganism. The passion now is to be the best and move forward with the movement, not a cult but a culture.”

This new opening is the start of a franchising push that Cook sees as the future of the brand, already signed by Market Halls Victoria — he wants it to be the vegan equivalent of Subway, according to Big Hospitality.
