21 Sep Vege-Way
Las Vegas now has one of the only vegan fast food restaurants and drive-thru services on the west coast, thanks to Chef Kenny Chye of Veggie House fame.
A dream for two years, Chye set out to create the vegan version of the infamous In N’Out burger. Did he do it? Yes. So. Much. Yes.
But, he didn’t just nail the plant-based/cruelty-free recreation he aspired to when creating a vegan fast food location, he also nailed popcorn chicken. Fish tacos. Chicken wraps. And, added some gorgeous salads — we’re looking at you, cilantro deliciousness — to the joint, too.
Officially opened Sept. 20, whispers and tastings have been going on for months, and now the vegan community in Las Vegas can boast they’ve got something other cities dream of: their very own place to eat vegan fast food.
What to order? The entire menu. Well, we all know the first time at the spot, that’s exactly what goes through our minds. But, if you want the true gem, it’s the burger. Double vegan burger if you’re hungry-hungry. And a milkshake. Chef Kenny’s favorite is the mango (all are made with almond milk). And, our personal favorite, the curly fries. Because curly fries.
For those who want to love up on a fast food spot and still eat healthy, you can. Well, ish. Two salads are on the menu, along with sweet potato fries, because they are definitely healthier than the curly fries we want to stuff our faces with.
