Calgary, AB—Canada’s beef industry capital—just got its first vegan fast-food restaurant. V Burger boasts a full menu of vegan comfort food, including burgers, chicken nuggets, French fries, poutine, milkshakes, and sundaes. The eatery has also created a signature, house-made V Mix Ice Cream, which allows customers to customize the dessert with a choice of more than 20 mix-ins, and also sells vegan soft serve, ice cream sandwiches, and OMV ice cream pints to take home.
“We were inspired to introduce the future of fast food to the modern world,” V Burger founder Ryan Wesley told VegNews. “Veganism is the way of the changing world, and one of the key points to keeping our environment stable and healthy. We aren’t just a basic fast-food restaurant. We targeted both vegans and omnivores, creating our own twist on vegan fast food and creating something major that Calgary lacks.”
Calgary is also home to several vegan cafes, including saVeg (owned by Canadian YouTube star Rose Lee), The Dandelion, Hearts Choices, Raw Eatery & Market, Tamarind Vietnamese Grill, and a location of vegan chain Copper Branch.
