If you are located in the Los Angeles area, then you’re in luck, because Del Taco has just added a new vegan-friendly alternative to their menu! This past Thursday, in collaboration with Beyond Meat, Del Taco will now be offering their Beyond Meat Crumbles at their Culver City and Santa Monica locations.
Not only is this plant-based beef alternative an exciting new addition to the menu for vegan and vegetarian diners, but it will also be the first time this product has ever been offered at a fast food, drive-thru restaurant in the United States!
Two new dishes will include the Beyond Meat Beef Crumbles: one called the Beyond Taco and the other a Beyond Avocado Taco. Additionally, you can choose to swap any protein on the menu for the vegan crumbles, giving you a huge array of veggie options!
Beyond Meat exclaims that the new vegan tacos are the perfect plant-based option because they, “look and satisfy just like a ground beef taco served with the convenience of a drive-thru. Both tacos are delicious, juicy, meaty tacos for true meat lovers with all the flavor and protein. It just happens to be made from plants.”
For those living on the West Coast, head over to Santa Monica or Culver City to try the new, delicious Beyond Tacos!
