David Chang is the owner of the Momofuku Nishi eatery that blends together Italian and Asian cuisine, and will be one of the first locations to serve the Impossible Foods simulated vegan meat patties that actually bleed a faux blood. The burger patties are constructed using biotechnology to simulate the look, feel, taste and texture of meat using plant ingredients. The dish offers a close comparison to real meat, taking much less to produce.
The fast casual burger dish will contain the Impossible Burger patty made with plants and specifically engineered vegan products to replicate the taste of beef without using animal-based ingredients. The burger is dressed 'Nishi style' without cheese and served with a side of fries.
Simulated meats appearing in fast casual meals could potentially open the doors for other ways the product can be used to supplement vegan cuisine.
