This new eatery adds a plant-based twist to traditional hibachi—here are the latest details!
Backed by Andrew Zimmerman and Robert Montwaid, Hippie Hibachi is opening at the Chattahoochee Food Works hall in the Underwood Hills neighborhood of Atlanta. The new eatery claims to be the first vegan hibachi concept in Atlanta. Hippie Hibachi was created by Joshua Brock, after he decided to switch to a plant-based lifestyle.
“We are so excited to introduce this in Atlanta. I think it’s fresh, unique, and exciting. The whole idea stems from wanting to satisfy this four-year craving I’ve had (since becoming vegan) for a traditional hibachi meal. I think that’s something all vegans can relate to, and I know this will be something everyone will enjoy. We’re putting an herbivorous spin on the hibachi experience that leaves people asking ‘This is vegan?!’” Brock told VegOut.
The concept is based on classic hibachi-style cuisine, where guests can choose from a variety of plant-based protein options like vegan teriyaki chicken (soy-based), vegan shrimp made from konjac root, Impossible beef, tofu, and mushrooms. Each protein can be paired with vegetables, fried rice, and house-made vegan Yum Yum sauce or Hippie Yaki sauce.
Hippie Hibachi aims to open inside Chattahoochee Food Works within the next two months. Follow @HippieHibachi on Instagram for updates!
