Plant-praising herbivores and meat-minded carnivores alike probably thought this day would never come: VEGAN FRIED CHICKEN EXISTS, and—wait for it—you can acquire it at a local food truck.
‘Local,’ assuming you are lucky enough to reside in northern Virginia. The up-and-coming, Richmond-based Mean Bird RVA is ready to dig its claws into the greater area and beyond in order to share the finest fried chicken around (BOTH traditional and vegan).
Fronted by husband-wife duo Mike and Sarah Moore, Mean Bird offers traditional fried chicken, vegan fried “chicken,” homemade biscuits, seasonal specials, sides and dipping sauces. The Veggie Bird, the truck’s signature vegan fried chicken, is made with fresh vegetables, whole grains, herbs and seasonings
They’ve already found success catering private events despite having only recently taken flight, and have implemented a Kickstarter project to help fund their goal of reaching more neighborhoods.
Basically, they’re saying we have the power to make the dream of a vegan fried chicken food truck a reality.
Well, 2016 is the year for making things happen, and we have until January 12 to help make Mean Bird happen. Bring it on.
