Next Meats Co. collaborated with Wayback Burgers to create a plant-based short rib burger made with the world's first plant-based Japanese-style barbecue meat. The East Meats Next burger features the NEXT Yakiniku short rib with fresh kimchi and ponzu cucumbers. The meatless alternative is rich in protein, free from cholesterol and it is described as being full of light Japanese barbecue flavoring.
The partnering brands are teaming up to give away free samples of the East Meats Next slider at the upcoming Sacramento Vegan Food Festival. Fortunately for foodies in the area, there will be a new Wayback Burgers location opening in Sacramento soon.
The Tokyo-based alternative meat venture also announced that its vegan-friendly NEXT Yakiniku Short Rib will be available in the United States with the upcoming launch of an e-commerce shop.
