Fast-casual restaurant chain Shake Shack recently launched its first vegan burger in the United Kingdom. The Vegan Shackburger features a plant-based patty made with vegetables, grains, and herbs such as kale, quinoa, and sweet potato, and is topped with vegan cheese, lettuce, tomato, and vegan ShackSauce, all served on a toasted bun. The new menu item is a limited-time offer at select UK locations, including Brent Cross, Canary Wharf, Mansion House, and Stratford.
Stateside, the chain’s only meatless option is a cheese-laden portobello mushroom-based burger that cannot be ordered without dairy. In 2018, select NYC locations of Shake Shack trialled the Veggie Shack, the chain’s first vegan-friendly burger, for a limited time.
