THERE is good news for those who fancy a kebab after a night on the town but want to keep things healthy.

A new takeaway opening later this year will provide the ideal solution.

What The Pitta, in East Street, Brighton, will offer entirely vegan kebabs and other vegan delights such as Turkish pizzas and couscous salads.

After opening three successful kebab shops in London, British-Turkish friends Cem Yildiz and Rojdan Gul see Brighton as a promising next step.

And it has been welcomed by others in the business.

Ayman Ibrahim, 31, manager at BnEat sandwich bar in Castle Square, Brighton, said: “I think this is really exciting news.

“We often have people coming in and asking for vegan options and have had to order more vegan friendly food to cater for them so it’s good to hear there will be more options for them.

“I work with a couple of vegans and they always talk about there being little choice in places around town, even though Brighton is pretty vegan friendly.”

Andra Ion, 22, a server at BnEat, is vegan and is excited about having more choice.

She said: “I am a little bored of only having falafel as an option when I go to kebab houses or other takeaway food places.

“I am looking forward to tasting some new options.”

Eli Basta, 23, owner of nearby vegan restaurant Happy Maki in Pool Valley, Brighton said: “I could make some jokes about them being

competition but no, I am really excited.

“Everyone I have spoken to about it sounds excited.

“It’s great to have more vegan options around for people but it’s also good to support local businesses, so we look forward to seeing what they’re about.

“There are a lot of junk food style vegan options in Brighton, which is different to what we do.

“But I guess it’s good to have a vegan junk food option as well.

“It will make it easier for

vegans to remain vegan when they have those moments of temptation.”

What The Pitta co-founder Cem Yildiz said: “We can’t wait to take our kebabs further afield with our Brighton opening.

“We hope to continue encouraging people across the South East to be meat free more often by providing delicious and satisfying alternatives, with added health and environmental benefits.”
