Following in the footsteps of fast-food chains like Burger King and Sizzler, KFC, née Kentucky Fried Chicken, has unveiled a plant-based menu.
Partnering up with food giant CP’s homegrown plant-based brand Meat Zero, KFC has developed a range of plant-based goodies that the brand says capture the look, taste, texture, and smell of the colonel’s fried bird.
Some of the dishes on the menu include plant-based chicken pops (B49), spicy rice bowls with plant-based chicken pops (B75), combo plant-based pops (B79), combo plant-based zabb rice bowls (B119), and combo salad bowls with plant-based pops (B119).
The meat-free options are currently available at just two “KFC Green” branches: the Sangsom Building (Viphavadhi-Rangsit Rd.) and Vanachai Depot Chachoengsao.
With more people in Thailand reducing their meat consumption
, it seems the time was right for the fried chicken brand, known for its extra-secret recipe made from a proprietary blend of 11 herbs and spices, to jump on the bandwagon. But this trial menu will only be available until Sep 29
. If you’re lucky, it might appear in stores near you after that.
