Vegetarians at Burger Kings in the United States and many other markets currently have one main meal option: a Morning Star Veggie Burger. But herbivores might have more options soon, as Burger King considers rolling out its Indian vegetarian menu options in other markets.
Since India’s population leans vegetarian, the fast food joint offers six vegetarian sandwiches in the country, according to Quartz. Options on the Burger King India menu include: a Veg Chilli Cheese Melt, a vegetarian Whopper, Crispy Veg, Spicy Bean Royale, Paneer King Melt, and the BK Veggie. There are also vegetarian sides such as Veggie Strips, which look like mozzarella sticks stuffed with vegetables instead of cheese, and spicy onion rings called Fiery Rings.
“Looking at the response here, the global management is evaluating introducing some of these options going forward to other vegetarian-friendly markets like the UK,” Raj Varman, Burger King India’s CEO, told PTI.
Burger King isn’t the only fast food restaurant to realize tastes are changing. Wendy’s recently tested a black bean veggie burger in select Ohio stores that received rave reviews.
