Vegan Butcher Shop to be featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives
VegNews reports that last week, the shop closed down to feed Guy Fieri, the notoriously meat-hungry host and restauranteur with an infamous collection of bowling shirts. His iconic 1967 Chevy Camaro SS Convertible visited the Minneapolis hot spot which has seen tons of media attention since opening. Sibling owners Kale and Aubry Walch fed him a Turkey and Dill Havarti Sandwich and their Italian Cold Cuts Sandwich that is comprised of pastrami, ham, pepperoni, and mozzarella on a hoagie bun with pickled cherry peppers, mayonnaise, dried oregano, oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
Kale and Aubry took to their blog to confirm that he loved what he sampled, and to happily share that he spoke of members of the Fieri clan that have embraced veganism. Aubry went as far as telling VegNews that, “He said that most of the time he cooks just vegetables at home. People think he’s a crazy, hard-core meat eater, but he’s a pretty awesome dude.”
The team and their fans are most excited about vegan food getting national television time, and exposure to a new audience. The episode is set to air sometime this summer.
