Beyond Meat—the vegan company behind the popular patty—announced that it partnered with the chain in September 2018 to test its plant-based burger at select TGI Fridays locations in the greater Boston area. The meatless patty is made from pea protein, beets, and coconut oil, and is often know as the ‘bleeding’ burger thanks to the addition of beetroot in the recipe.
After huge demand from customers in the UK to add the plant-based pasty to the menu, the American-restaurant has announced that the vegan patty will be joining the UK menu from today (January 7th) and will be priced at £10.99.
According to TGI Fridays’ Head Chef, Terry McDowell: “Fridays flame-grilled, hand-crafted burgers are one of the most popular dishes on our menu and now everyone can enjoy their legendary taste, whether they are vegan, vegetarian, trying to cut down on meat, or anything in between!
“We launched our vegan burger in the States last year and have been inundated with messages asking if we planned to bring it to the UK. So, it is here by popular demand!
“We’ve put a lot of research and effort into ensuring we offer the best vegan burger in town, as well as one that comes with a 100% vegan bun.
“With high protein, zero cholesterol – yet all the flavour of a real burger and with a succulent and satisfying meaty ‘bite’ – the question is, why wouldn’t you give it a go?”
