Root Pop is a vegan café, but not in the sense of which you would normally associate vegan restaurants. This vegan concept is completely unique for Beijing. We aren’t about force-feeding guests facts about how eating meat and dairy will kill you one day or how you should only be eating superfood salads if you want to stay fit. Rather, Brandon has designed a menu for us with all the comfort foods you are used to eating at home, but with a vegan twist. Root Pop.
