This vegan fried “fish” is made from banana flowers.

Banana flowers are the blossoms from a banana tree. Some say the blossom can be compared to artichokes, as it has a similar taste and texture.

But the restaurants Sutton and Sons is giving it some fish flavor to make vegan fish and chips. They start by marinating the blossoms in seaweed. The flower is then breaded and deep fried.

Sutton and Sons has been selling traditional fish and chips for almost 20 years. After incorporating vegan options into its menu they decided to open up an all vegan location called Sutton and Sons Vegan.

The restaurant is located in London, England. It also serves vegan prawns which are really just Japanese potato starch. The menu also includes fish cakes made from banana blossom, the sea plant samphire, and potato.

The banana blossom is used in many cuisines in Southeast Asia. It’s considered a vegetable and can be eaten raw or cooked.
