Hank’s Deli is a brand new 100% vegan deli and shop that opened on Lloyds Avenue, Ipswich. When I first saw this, I was amazed! There is nothing like this that I have come across around this area, and it is so nice to have a completely vegan deli/café and shop, where you can purchase a lot of vegan products that are otherwise hard to find! Alongside Hullabaloo and the TFI Vegan Burger Van, Hank’s Deli is an amazing establishment to join the market!
Now, I cannot lie, I have been to the deli quite a few times and I definitely have a few firm favourites! The Rocky Road is AMAZING – the best I have ever had, and I don’t usually like it. I’ve now been back on several occasions to buy more for myself, and my friends and family, non-vegan, and they love it too!
Recently, I’ve tried the BBQ Chick’n (fake meat) Roll which is delicious. I’m really unsure of the meat substitute that they use, but it is definitely one of the best I’ve tried. It comes in a golden brioche bun with crispy lettuce, tomato, homemade mayo and their crunchy, creamy coleslaw. They also do a BBQ Pulled Jackfruit alternative which I am yet to try!
A special mention has to go to the Biscoff Cheesecake and Blueberry & Chocolate Muffin. Oh, and aaaalllll of their Brownies – Fudge, Biscoff, Oreo and Gluten Free – yes I’ve tried them all! Their sweet treat counter is definitely the best I’ve seen and you will not be disappointed by anything you buy. Everything is also very reasonably priced considering the quality of the products; vegan food is known to be very expensive
but being affordable is another reason why I love Hank’s.
Another speciality is Hank’s Vegan Tuna Chickpea Wrap that I had with their Lentil Salad. Both make a very good and filling lunch. I’d never had a vegan alternative to Tuna before then, and I was pleasantly surprised; it is really nice and tasty. I really want to try their lunch boxes.
As you can probably tell, I am a little bit obsessed with Hank’s Deli! It’s not only the food and affordability that makes Hank’s attractive, but also the atmosphere, variety (that vegans usually get a lack of) and the service! The staff are always SO friendly and you can tell that they really appreciate the support – they even remember the regular faces!
I cannot wait to go back and try their Full Breakfast, as well as their brand new Clucky’s Crispy Fillet Burger. Check out their Instagram @hanksdeli for some amazing, mouth watering images.
Oh, their sausage rolls are really good too!
