Miami – In time for Super Bowl LIV, PETA has scoured Miami for the best vegan wings—and 10 of the area’s top vegan and vegan-friendly eateries scored big.
Here are the MVPs:
- Gardein Wings from Yard House, available in Buffalo, Smokey BBQ sauce, and Ancho BBQ sauce
- Buffalo Cauliflower, in house-made cashew Buffalo sauce and served with vegan ranch, from Clovermint Café & Market
- Mora Pizza‘s Vegan Wings, smothered in BBQ, or Buffalo sauce and served with vegan ranch or bleu cheese dressing
- CauliWings, with BBQ, jerk, Buffalo, or pineapple-jalapeño sauce, from The Spanglish Vegan

- Spicy Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower Wings, served with house-made dairy-free ranch, from Full Bloom
- Cheezious‘ saucy Tempeh Buffalo Wings

- Vegan Gardein Chicken Tenders, smothered in Buffalo or BBQ sauce and served with house-made vegan ranch, from Vannucchi Brothers
- Green Belly Cafe‘s Roasted Cauliflower Bites, dipped in a spicy coconut milk batter and covered with breadcrumbs
“This vast vegan selection is proof that Miami is ‘King of the Wings,'” says PETA Executive President Tracy Reiman. “All the satisfying meat-free snacks on PETA’s list soar high above cruel and boring chicken wings—and they show kindness to gentle birds.”
Every year, hundreds of millions of chickens are killed for the Super Bowl alone. As PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—reveals in its “Chicken in Reverse” video, birds killed for their flesh are crammed by the tens of thousands into filthy sheds and bred to grow such unnaturally large upper bodies that their legs often become crippled under the weight. At the slaughterhouse, their throats are often cut while they’re still conscious, and many are scalded to death in defeathering tanks.
Each eatery will receive a framed certificate from PETA.
PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For those preparing their own Super Bowl feasts, a list of vegan game-day recipes is available here. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
