American vegan chain Vegetarian grills became the latest restaurant to launch a vegan fried “chicken” sandwich. The limited edition Crispy Buffalo Chickin ‘Sandwich will be available from now until JJuly 27.
The sandwich features plant-based fried chicken, vegan ranch dressing, buffalo sauce, pickles, lettuce and tomato, all served in a toasted vegan brioche bun.
Veggie Grill also recently launched a new summer dessert, a vegan lime cheesecake. It consists of a lime cake topped with a layer of cheesecake and lime zest. Cheesecake is one of the many new menu items the chain has added to its line over the past year – others include Reuben on Rye and Deli Sub.
Last October, Veggie Grill began offering a limited edition tuna fondant made from Good Catch’s plant-based tuna. The channel is also part of the investment portfolio of KBW Ventures, whose CEO and founder is Saudi Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed.
“We believe our Plant-Based Crispy Chicken Crispy Sandwich rivals any other fried chicken sandwich on the market,” said TK Pillan, Founder and Executive Chairman of Veggie Grill. “All of our menu items at Veggie Grill are meant to be familiar and delicious, for those embracing their food conscious journey and to show how good plant-based foods are today.”
