After the second lockdown delayed its opening, Hampstead’s new vegan restaurant Kojo is looking forward to opening its doors for the first time on December 7 – and its aiming to make sure diners feel it’s as pandemic-friendly as possible.
Kojo is promoting a plant-based lifestyle and its menu does not include processed vegan “meats”, instead on focusing on a “natural” dishes.
Situated on the site of the old Carluccio’s on Rosslyn Hill, the new restaurant’s owners will be making a point of ensuring there is as little opportunity as possible for virus transmission.
Krystal Sanchez, who is managing marketing, told the Ham&High the restaurant is entirely contactless, with customers seating themselves and ordering everything on an app.
The restaurant will also be split in two – the right side dedicated to dine in customers, the left only for the grab-and-go crowd.
