Founded by Andy Hogben, Alter exists to challenge the common perceptions of vegan food by drawing inspiration from global street food cultures rather than working with meat and dairy substitutes. 

Despite offering a solely vegan menu, Alter is not just for vegans. It’s for everyone - an inclusive eating and drinking space that transports guests with upbeat dishes that focus on what's gained, not lost by being part of this global movement.
