A Mouthwatering Plant-Based Junk Food Pop-Up Is Coming To Tampa This Month

Cruelty-free, fast-foodie goodness.

We're all guilty of letting fast-food seduce our palate from time to time; however, vegans have probably had to say pass more often than not since typical fast-food is usually prepared with or near products of animal origin. It's often believed when food is plant-based it can't look or taste as drool-worthy — but luckily for Floridians, a mouthwatering vegan restaurant is hosting a junk-food pop-up in Tampa this month that will make all bellies happy, vegan or not.

The Plant-Based Junk Food event in Tampa will take place at Southern Brewing & Winemaking on March 17 with bites available for purchase from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

There is no entry fee for this foodie pow-wow either, meaning you and your friends can expend every dime in your pocket on tasty treats to chow down. 

Vuture Food, a Los Angeles-based vegetarian and vegan restaurant based in our west coast cousin state, Cali, is responsible for this special one-time pop-up.

There will be just one booth in attendance, serving all types of delicious vegan fast-food creations.

The organizers said on their event page that the Vegan Crispy Chik’n Sandwiches may be "One of the best you'll ever have!" 

You might just want to put that to the test. 

Just by seeing the pictures, we're already drooling. You can get your hands on vegan comfort-food creations such as loaded french fries, hot dogs, and more.

If you are looking for not only vegan but also gluten-free food, you should take into account that even though their loaded fries are made with gluten-free ingredients, they are fried with patties that contain wheat.

According to organizers all of the food items for sale will contain soy. 

Before heading to Tampa on March 17, this pop-up will have dates in other major Florida cities too. They will be serving up to Tallahassee on March 12, Jacksonville on March 13, Gainsville on March 14, and Orlando on March 15.

To pay for the food, they will be accepting cash — just the exact change — and credit card.

Vuture Food's pop-up will also pass by Oakland Park and West Palm Beach before heading to Louisiana. Make sure to check for all the dates and locations on their social platforms.
