Due to a growing demand for plant-based options, BarBurrito is excited to announce its partnership with Beyond Meat to offer two new vegan crumbles. For a limited time, regular-sized “Feisty Beef” or “Spicy Sausage” burritos will be sold at a discounted introductory price. Customers can try both plant-based proteins and vote for their favourite in a “Battle of the Bowls” at barburrito.ca/beyondmeat until November 30.

Beyond Meat has skyrocketed in popularity over the last few years as a plant-based alternative that looks, cooks, and tastes like traditional meat. More and more restaurants have been adopting the gluten-free, soy-free protein in their menus, but BarBurrito is the first to offer two varieties.

One of BarBurrito’s team members was a large advocate for the partnership. “As a vegan who suffers from celiac disease, I understand the difficulties of finding food that accommodates dietary restrictions. We’re excited to be able to offer something for everyone.”

Both the Feisty Beef and Spicy Sausage proteins can be added to burritos, bowls, tacos, quesadillas, Extreme Fries, and Extreme Chips. Choose from an array of toppings including fresh veggies, house-made guac and salsa, and 4 vegan sauces (Chipotle BBQ, Spicy Buffalo, Jalapeno Eclipse, and Signature Hot Sauce).

BarBurrito is a chain of 100 (and growing) fast-casual restaurants across Canada. Alex Shtein founded the company in Toronto in 2005 when he saw a need for fresh, fast, high-quality Tex-Mex food. The brand operates coast-to-coast, with locations coming soon to the Atlantic provinces and the US.
