Let’s use as an example the IMPOSSIBLE BURGER that recently was introduced on many restaurant menus around the country – many animal-based restaurants.
The two in question are located downtown Cleveland, Ohio: STACK’D HANDCRAFTED SANDWICHES and WAHLBURGER’S.
Steve and I wanted to try the burger, so he checked both restaurants which claimed to carry it and they both did. However, neither restaurant provided a vegan bun or vegan cheese or vegan sauce. Everything except the burger was animal-based.
That’s like serving a gluten-free burger on a gluten bun to a person who does not eat gluten. It makes no sense.
As future chefs and restaurant owners, do the logical thing when serving vegan: Make the entire dish vegan or at least say it can be made vegan.
It almost seems intentional or a slap in the face to vegans who are the ones who worked and fought for decades to see these animal-free changes made in food offerings in restaurants. For meat-lovers only.
A vegan burger for meat lovers only. Flip it to the vegans who can’t have it because everything on it is animal-based. How small of STACK’D and WAHLBURGER’S.
