Sin City welcomes Vegan Drive-Thru
They say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but we hope the concept of vegan drive-thru restaurants expands past the party city.
Veg News reports that VegeWay Burger will have it’s soft opening on Sunday, and that guests to the restaurant won’t have to step foot out of their cars. Owner and chef Kenny Chye already brought Veggie House to Vegas’ Chinatown, so this will be his exciting next chapter in Sin City vegan domination.
The restaurant will offer an Asian-inspired menu alongside American classics. That mean you can roll up to the speaker and request a Vietnamese beef bahn mi sandwiches, or you can stick to a classic fries and shake. According to Eater, they’ve got In-N-Out style burgers at a comparable fast food price of $4.69, and we can’t help but want to drive across North America to get our hands on vegan popcorn chicken set to sell at the same price point.
Both the burger and popcorn chicken were sampled by this lucky food blogger, SuperFOOD Shelly. She said that Chef Kenny has dreamt of opening a burger spot for 25 years, and described her experience mowing down on one this way:
“He has a special seasoning and a great texture to the patty and gooey delicious cheeze that compliment the 2 different sauces as you bite into the soft bun and crispy lettuce, onion and tomato. He said he wanted a simple delicious experience that anyone can enjoy! I can’t wait to bering my omni friends to this drive-thru.”
The only other drive-thru vegan fast food currently on the map is Amy’s Drive-Thru, located in Rohnert Park, CA. If the height of vegan popularity or the growing availability of vegan options was ever doubted, I’d say drive-thru restaurants are easy proof of both!
