Vegan Fast Food Is Fabulous: Check Out These Chains

Published by .

As chain restaurants continue to add vegan options, it’s never been easier to find convenient vegan food wherever you live. Some rapidly growing chains don’t serve meat and dairy at all. At these vegan chains, you can find loaded burgers, vegan chicken sandwiches, filling salads, and so much more, all made without ingredients that harm animals. Cows, chickens, pigs, fish, and other animals used for food never get the chance to live the way nature intended. Instead, they are kept in cramped and filthy cages, genetically manipulated to grow larger or produce more milk, and slaughtered by the billions each year.

This upscale Los Angeles–based restaurant by chef Tal Ronnen is known for creative dishes, like Spaghetti Carbonara with a vegan egg yolk, Artichoke Oysters, and even a fish-friendly Bagel Tower with kelp “caviar” and “whitefish” salad made from hearts of palm. It also has locations in Calabasas, California, and Las Vegas.

Comedian Kevin Hart’s fast-food chain features a vegan menu with signature burgers, crispy “chicken” sandwiches, milkshakes, and other tasty, animal-friendly favorites.
