Posting on Facebook, he said: "The chicken and chorizo is the favourite between our customers. We brought a bigger paella pan and it seemed that we covered the demand.

"The gazpacho is also a vegan and delicious option that many people likes."

When it comes to cooking a vegan paella, however, it has been more 'challenging'.

Pepe said on his page: "It is being very challenging to cook a vegan paella in the way a paella is cooked. It has not many fans and we are not completely satisfied about this product. However, we will carry on trying ingredients and methods and re-adjust the price accordingly to its cost."

Despite this, dozens of Crowthorne residents said Pepe's food is "delicious" with newbies dying to try out his food.
