Trying The New Vegan Range at Yard & Coop Liverpool

Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting Yard & Coop in Liverpool to test out their new vegan menu for Veganuary [invited]. If you’ve followed my blog for a while then you might remember me sharing a few of my staple meat-free recipes over the years. So getting a chance to see what options Yard & Coop were offering for Veganuary definitely had me excited.

Known for their Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Yard & Coop have launched a special vegan menu for January along with a £1 prosecco deal (…dry January who? I don’t know her). Given that their focus is usually on fried chicken dishes, I had no idea what to expect when I heard about their new vegan menu. But I was definitely intrigued!

The Great Thun-Burger

After looking through the menu I was instantly drawn to the Greta Thun-Burger. As someone who will usually opt for the vegetarian or vegan option when it comes to burgers anyway, I was interested to see how Yard & Coop’s new vegan burger would stack up against some of my favourites.

Something that I’d never experienced was a meat-substitute burger that was so similar to a standard chicken burger. Normally when I go for the veg/vegan option I’ll have a seitan burger (which in my opinion is nothing like the texture of normal meat – in the best way!). But the not-so-chicken tot patty of The Greta Thun-Burger looked so much like chicken!

Bringing together vegan fried chicken, hash browns, vegan cheese, rainbow slaw and lime salsa, I was impressed! I was worried that the combination might be a bit soft but I found that it still had a bite to it which was lovely. The burger was served alongside vegan garlic mayo and skin on fries which were gorgeous (but so filling!).

The Drinks

Throughout January, you can get a glass of prosecco for £1 when your order any large plate, burger or chicken feast, or a vegan meal. Just make sure to book in advance and quote ‘£1 prosecco’ when you do. I enjoyed my prosecco whilst waiting for my burger and then decided to test out their cherryade which was delicious! I hadn’t had cherryade in years so this was a real treat.  

It was such a great experience to test out some new meat-free meals and to see meat-focused restaurants adding new options to cater to everyone! Have you tried out Yard & Coop’s new vegan range yet? What did you think?
