Plant Power

OB Scott Cowham takes Berkhamsted by storm after opening town's first 100 per cent plant-based restaurant.

OB Scott Cowham (Spencer, 2014) and his friend Matt Mills have set up Dojo Asian Fusion on Lower Kings Road in Berkhamsted. Dojo Asian Fusion serves up a full menu of completely plant-based Asian-style dishes.

The eatery takes a creative plant-based approach to classic dishes including pad Thai, duck pancakes, chicken satay and chicken katsu curry. The pair have come up with a menu which is, minus a few items, all made in-house using Matt’s recipe including his very own vegan fried egg.

The pair decided to go into business after the pandemic hit. Scott said: “We were both doing our own things before COVID, then we started looking at COVID-proof business ideas and takeaways were thriving where other industries were suffering".

Scott, who has been vegan for five years, also added that alongside the plant-based menu, they are striving to be as sustainable as possible. He said: “We wanted all our packaging to either be recyclable or compostable, branded packaging and bags are all recyclable. “We can’t promise zero waste as we have waste of sorts, but we are trying to be as sustainable as possible. Even our oil gets collected and recycled into biofuel”.

Check out the restaurant on Facebook and Instagram by searching ‘Dojo Asian Fusion’.
