Years ago KFC launched the Double Down burger as sandwich with two patties in place of top and bottom buns. Now, The Cornish Arms in Melbourne, Australia has launched a vegan version of the menu item with entirely plant-based ingredients.
Inspired by of-the-moment happenings in the world of food and pop culture, chef Lloyd Kembrey crafts the recipe with two mock chicken patties made from a base of soy, which are coated in spices, the sandwich is topped with vegan cheese, bacon, as well as tomatoes. The all-vegan bunless sandwich is served with a side of fries and slaw.
Although The Cornish Arms is not a vegan pub, it offers a variety of plant-based dishes and serves 12 vegan craft beers, noting: "dietary preference is no barrier to good food and nights with friends."
