this isn’t chicken, so will you give these a try?
The burger boys behind Patty & Bun brought new vegan goodies to Brighton earlier this year, partnering with THIS to add plant-based ‘chicken’ nuggets and ‘bacon’ to their menu. If you are one for lookie-likey vegan ‘meat’-style products, then these could be for you. Plus, they’re the first restaurant in the UK to serve them up.
Developed alongside food scientists, the long-awaited plant-based products from THIS have been a year and a half in the making. We know what you may be thinking… what are they made from? Well, they’re mainly made from soybeans, water and peas, THIS then adds heat, pressure and water to these plant-based ingredients, creating vegan products with a texture that’s “ridiculously similar to meat”.
As well as being able to order a portion of five (£4.50) or eight (£6.75) THIS isn’t chicken nuggets with ketchup (pictured above), they’ve also created plant-based bacon that has a very similar look, taste and smell as the real McCoy. Described by Patty & Bun founder, Joe Grossmann, as “next level”, they will be adding these smokey-flavoured vegan rashers to all their vegan burgers, including their well-known Whoopi Goldburger (pictured), which is a tempeh and mushroom fritter, with bread and butter pickles, diced onion, smoked Gouda cheese, mustard, ketchup, lettuce, lovingly encased in a Bonsoy bun and priced at £8.75. It will also be the topping for their new Pamela burger, along with a plant protein patty, spicy mayo, cheddar, pickles, onion, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, Bonsoy bun. Hungry yet? We certainly are…
