California’s Southern Fried Vegan Is Coming to Chicago This Weekend
Southern California’s first vegan pop-up vendor will be making an appearance in Chicago, Illinois this weekend!
Southern California’s first vegan pop-up vendor, Southern Fried Vegan, is coming to Chicago on Sunday, July 18. The pop-up will take place at Dovetail Brewery located at 1800 W Belle Plaine Ave, Chicago, IL 60613 from 1-5pm.
Southern Fried Vegan’s Smoked BBQ Vegan Meats
The Southern Fried Vegan pop-up will feature various smoked BBQ vegan meats, Fried Chickun, Mac ‘N Cheeze, Jambalaya, Cajun Corn, and Totchos. In addition, Southern Fried Vegan will also be serving a new item they’ve coined “The Porker,” a burger featuring slow-smoked BBQ’d OmniPork Strips with fried pickles, slaw, and a vegan chili truffle aioli.
OmniPork Pork Protein Made Entirely from Plants
OmniPork is a new pork protein made entirely from plants. It was originally tested at 25 restaurants in Hawaii and California, and after much success, OmniPork is beginning to expand. The plant-based pork is made using a proprietary blend of plant-based protein from non-GMO soy, peas, shiitake mushrooms, and rice, and is available in three varieties—Ground, Strips, and Luncheon. OmniPork can be seasoned, steamed, pan-fried, deep-fried, stuffed, or crumbled—you choose!
Southern Fried Vegan’s Vegan Eats at Coachella and VegFests
Southern Fried Vegan’s BBQ eats have become a crowd favorite at festivals like Coachella and VegFests, as well as Vegandale festival, which is hosted annually in New York, Chicago, Austin, and Toronto.
