Vegan Eats at Plant Based Junkie
If you haven’t been to Plant Based Junkie on Chicago’s south side, this is your sign to change that.
This black woman owned pickup-only spot recreates Chicago junk food faves like gyro burgers, chicken sandwiches, tacos, even chicken wings, made tantalizingly vegan!
What I enjoyed:
The Stupid Jerk Burger: This tantalizing burger has a perfectly seasoned Impossible patty, jerk mayo, a flavorful slaw and sliced pineapple. This burger really blew my skirt up and the flavors were so on point.
Bobbie, the owner, told me that she may not keep this burger on the menu because it is not selling as well as the other burgers. That would be a travesty! So please go try it and tell them that Plant-based Tamika sent you.
The Super Taco: This is one of their customer faves and I know why. It features impossible grounds seasoned to perfection, lettuce, tomato, cheese and more on a pita wrap. It was tantalizing.
Chik'n Wings: These were hands down the best vegan chicken wings I've had from a restaurant. They pulled just like chicken, so the texture is on point. The sauce and seasonings were also perfectly tangy with a hint of sweet.
You can opt for tater tots instead of fries, but don’t forget to add a side of their cheese sauce. I really enjoyed it and there is no weird aftertaste like other vegan cheese sauces.
