The vegan market is on fire and McDonald’s is no stranger when it comes to trends. They are introducing the McAloo Tikki at their Chicago headquarters. The McAloo Tikki is already a standard burger in India. I am not too enthused by the name myself. Why not just call it the McVegan burger? The meat-free burger should attract new customers who crave an alternative to the menu options offered at many restaurants.
“Customers have expressed interest in items from McDonald’s restaurants in India, and we’re excited to offer them the opportunity to try the long-time vegetarian favorite, McAloo Tikki.”
The McAloo Tikki is “a toasted bun filled with a veggie patty made with potatoes, pea, and seasoning reminiscent of samosas; topped with fresh red onions, tomato slices, and eggless creamy tomato mayo.”
Fun Fact: McDonald’s sells more than 75 hamburgers every second.
