A new vegan fast food concept will open its first location in San Diego's Ocean Beach neighborhood this January. From the owner of Evolution Fast Food in Hillcrest, Plant Power Fast Food will premier at 2204 Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and will offer an entirely plant-based menu that features burgers, shakes, fries, tacos, wraps, smoothies, salads, and fresh juices from a Sonic-style drive up eatery. A second location is planned for Encinitas for a Spring 2016 opening, with hopes of creating a regional chain of vegan fast food eateries over the next few years.
Plant Power Fast Food is the inspiration of Mitch Wallis, who is also the CEO of Hillcrest's Evolution Fast Food. At Plant Power in Ocean Beach, customers will have the choice of ordering through a drive-up kiosk for car dining or take out, as well as offer indoor ordering and dining. The second location is planned for 411 Sante Fe Drive in Encinitas at a former Burger King location and will have a typical drive-thru window.
The menu at Plant Power will be inspired by traditional fast food fare, reimagined to eliminate all meat and animal products. Expect dishes like the Buffalo 66 - a vegan take on a spicy Buffalo chicken sandwich; The Rambler burger with crispy onion rings, cheddar 'cheese', barbecue sauce and chipotle aioli; the Chimichurri 'Steak' Sandwich with marinated 'steak' strips, chimichurri sauce, spring mix, onion and tomato; and an assortment of street tacos, sandwiches, burgers salads and more. Once up and running, Plant Power plans to introduce a breakfast menu that will feature bagels and vegan cream cheese, 'egg' sandwiches and more.
