Popeyes’ fried chicken sandwich ain’t got nothing on these vegan versions! Yep, we went there!

Anyway, the real reason we’re here is to fill your feed with vegan fried chicken sandwiches that reign over any other! *cough* Popeyes *cough* Here are our top finger-looking must-haves!

Fountain Valley

Do you hear the choir of angels singing? Ok—that might be a bit dramatic, but this plant-based restaurant manifests the most ethereal fried chicken sandwiches of all!

Plant Power Fast Food

Long Beach, Redlands, Encinitas, and San Diego

Get your kicks with the Buffalo ‘66 from Plant Power! This top-notch handheld surpasses the standards of its iconic name with a groundbreakingly delicious makeup!

Food Truck

This vegan food truck is named after a chicken sandwich, so you know you’re in good hands! These peeps specialize in Original, Rockin, or Korean Fried Chicken Sandwiches!

Lettuce Feast

Food Truck

Ask Siri to look up “Vegan Fried Chicken Sandwiches” and this food truck will be one of the first names she’ll recite in her foreign accent! (No, it’s not just you who thinks Siri is more fun with an accent!) A wide array of spice levels, the most beautiful butter buns you ever did see, vegan cheddar cheese, ranch, and secret sauce––you name it, Lettuce Feast has it!

Silver Lake

Reading the word “fried” is one of the most heartbreaking moments for a gluten-free foodie. Why? Because “fried” normally translates to “full of gluten.” Not this time! by CHLOE saves the day with their Chicky Chicky Parm Parm! This upbeat tempeh chicken parm-inspired sub is gluten-free when ordered with a GF bun! Our hearts are full!

AVO Cafe

Santa Monica

The cool of the breeze, the smell of the salty ocean air, and the taste of a vegan burger––can you say “goals?” AVO Cafe hosts the most charming patio steps away from the ocean with a healthy and fresh menu! A breaded and sprouted tofu cutlet, lettuce, and various sauces bless the bun of your choice to constitute their Mock Chicken Burger! Continuing on the gluten-free trend, request Cauli Buns (made from cauliflower and garbanzo beans!)

AVO Cafe

Healthy Junk

Anaheim

Aside from classic chicken sandwiches, Healthy Junk breaks out a special menu item each week, which often features fried goodness! Their Cajun Fried Chikin Sandwich and Chikin Parm Burger are a few past ancestors! Maybe they’ll resurrect again? Stop by and check out what’s hot!
