South Shields' Sea Change cafe in Ocean Road offering vegan and vegetarian 'fish' and chips over Easter weekend
Vegans and vegetarians will be able to get their Good Friday fix of “fish” and chips this year, thanks to a popular Ocean Road cafe.
Sea Change is offering two alternative versions of the classic seaside dish for takeaway over Easter weekend.
The cafe is serving battered halloumi or tofu in a brioche bun served with home-made chunky chips and mushy peas alongside its usual reduced ‘lockdown menu’.
The community cafe opened in 2019 and provides employment opportunities for people living with autism and learning difficulties.
Sea Change has been open on Friday evenings and Saturday lunchtimes and afternoons during the third national lockdown.
But for the bank holiday weekend it is open from 12pm to 4pm on Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday to offer its fish and chips alternatives.
