Australian burger chain Hungry Jack’s has launched a vegan burger, available at select locations throughout the country.
Announcing the news on Facebook, Hungry Jack’s said: “The Vegan [Vurger] differs from the Veggie Whopper in a couple of ways: It’s made with locally produced vegan-friendly mayo and delicious creamy melted vegan-friendly cheese.”
The burger will feature “a 100% vegan patty made with carrots, peas, corn, potato and capsicum, plus veganaise and non-dairy vegan cheese”.
The ‘Vurger’ will only be available in the following stores, for a limited time:
-Sydney: Circular Quay; Oxford St, Darlinghurst; Pitt & Park Sts; Event Cinemas George St.
-Melbourne: Elizabeth St; Bourke & Russell Sts; Southern Cross Station; Kingsway, South Melbourne; Melbourne Central Shopping Centre; Spencer St, Docklands; Hoddle St, Richmond.
Other fast-food chains have been making similar menu changes over the past year, with McDonald’s releasing the McVegan at select locations and Pizza Hut UK adding pizzas with vegan cheese to their menus.
