A new food truck has stormed onto the market in London, Ontario, offering the perfect vegan “cheat day” meal: an all-vegan Big Mac style burger. Judging from the lines, we think this vendor is onto something.
The truck goes by the name of McVegans, and it stops all over the London area. The founder, James McInnes, named this vegan behemoth of a sandwich—the Big McInnes—after himself. And customers are willing to brave the lines. The vendor has been a hit at food festivals and farmers’ markets, selling over 1,000 burgers in its first weekend in operation.

You can track McVegans’ schedule by checking out its Facebook page or visiting its storefront at 5619 Colonel Talbot Rd. in London, open daily from 10 ’til 6.
This is just the tip of what we hope turns out to be a very big and delicious iceberg.
If a vegan Big Mac sounds like your dream, you may be able to find one near you.
After opening a new store in Toronto, Doomie’s Home Cookin’—which also has a restaurant in Hollywood, California—is noteworthy for serving vegan Big Mac style burgers in two different countries. You may not spot it on the menu, but never fear: It’s just a mouthwatering secret.

Los Angeles–area marketplace Organix also features an outstanding vegan “Mac Daddy” (among other delicious sandwiches and Mexican fare) at its deli counter.

Be amazed by all the things that can be made vegan!
Creative chefs in restaurants and home kitchens all over the world are showing that you can make vegan versions of anything you can eat—from American fast-food staples such as Big Macs to caviar and haggis (and, of course, the foods that you already eat every day).
Not only is vegan food delicious, it’s also good for animals and the environment.
And while you definitely shouldn’t eat whopping burgers like this every day if you’re concerned about your health, we can help you find a tasty, healthy recipe for every other meal you’ll eat this year.
