The Chicago Diner is a meat-free restaurant that offers a range of imitation wings that consumers who are seeking the familiar flavors of this classic dish, but that have dietary restrictions, are able to enjoy.
The restaurant offers two vegetarian and vegan "wing" options. The first of these is The Chicago Diner's Thai Chili Wings, which are based in the wheat gluten product seitan, are marinaded with a chili lime sauce, and are accompanied by a Sriracha Ranch dipping sauce. This particular dish is topped with a sesame garnish. The second "wings" menu item the restaurant offers is its Special Recipe Wings, which are also based in seitan and accompanied by the restaurant's vegan ranch dressing, and topped with either BBQ sauce or a spicy buffalo sauce.
