Burger King opens veggie pop up restaurant in Spain’s Madrid.

The Burger King pop-up restaurant will be in place for one month. The menu will be 100 per cent vegetarian. Burger King also announced the launch of the ‘Long Vegetal’. This is a ‘veggie’ version of its classic ‘Long Chicken’.

The new ‘Long Vegetal’ comes with bread, lettuce, mayonnaise and a chicken substitute made from soy and wheat. The meat substitute has been created by The Vegetarian Butcher.

Vegans will be to enjoy the new product too if they opt to skip the mayonnaise. The new product joins the Veggie Whopper and Veggie Nuggets on Burger King’s permanent list of vegetarian products.

Borja Hernández de Alba, general manager of Restaurant Brands Iberia Spain and Portugal said: “We want to reach both people who base their diet on plant-based products and those who do eat meat but want to reduce their consumption.”

All the products with the V-Label, have a quality seal for vegetarian and vegan products. This guarantees that there is no cross-contamination with meat. It also guarantees that they are of a vegetable origin.

According to Borja: “They are made in the fryer where only the potatoes go”.

In Spain, more than 5 million people follow a plant-based diet.
