A pair of vegan-focused restaurateurs are to launch a new fast food restaurant in London’s Soho that will serve both meat and plant-based dishes.

Brothers Alex and Oliver Santoro will open Wonderland next month on Old Compton Street and offer a menu that will centre on burgers and fried chicken, with side dishes, milkshakes and doughnuts also available.

The concept will take creative cues from pop culture cinema and feature graphic posters lining the walls, a holographic chrome counter, and a colour scheme of pink, purple and chrome.

Burger options will include the Pulp Fiction​-inspired ‘Royale with Cheese’ burger featuring an Aberdeen Angus beef patty topped with cheddar cheese, gherkins and ‘Wonder Sauce’; and the signature ‘Wonder burger’ made with a plant-based patty topped with vegan cheese.

The menu will also include Korean-style chicken wings; and a jalapeño-infused buttermilk fried chicken sandwich – both of which will also be available as plant-based options.

There will be separate fryers, grills and work-stations in the restaurant’s kitchen for the vegan and meat-based dishes.

The Santoro brothers were previously involved in vegan street food concept Genesis in Shoreditch, which launched back in 2018​. However, they left within a year.

Genesis has since relocated to Palmers Green and continues to operate under the leadership of its founder, James Pears.

The Santoro brothers also ran the now-defunct raw vegan food company Raw Imagination.
