NO KFC? NO PROBLEM. VEGAN FRIED CHICKEN FROM LIVERPOOL PUB NABS PETA AWARD FOR BEST IN THE UK
The Caledonia Earns Top 10 Spot for Delicious Cruelty-Free Fare
Liverpool – In the wake of KFC’s chicken “crisis”, PETA has finalised its list of the top 10 places to find vegan fried chicken in the UK, and Liverpool pub The Caledonia has nabbed a spot. Its scrumptious offerings include the Chimken BLT burger – which is topped with “bacon”, lettuce, and tomato – as well as crispy “wings” served plain, in BBQ sauce, or with gravy.
“The plant-based chicken at The Caledonia delivers huge flavour with zero cruelty,” says PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects Dawn Carr. “PETA’s top 10 list will help those turned away from KFC to get their fried ‘chicken’ fix without the battered flesh of dead birds.”
PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that chickens are smart, social, and sensitive animals who love their families and value their own
Every person who goes vegan not only spares more than 100 animals a year profound suffering and a terrifying death but also reduces his or her risk of suffering from heart attacks, obesity, diabetes, and numerous other ailments. And a report from the United Nations found that a global switch to vegan eating is necessary to combat the very worst effects of climate change.
The Caledonia will receive a framed award. Rounding out PETA’s list are Not Dogs in Birmingham, Seitan’s Grill in Cheltenham, Bread Meats Bread in Edinburgh, Earth in Hampshire, Vegan Fried Chicken in Leeds, Temple of Seitan in London, V-Rev in Manchester, Happy Friday Kitchen in Oxford, and Burger Lolz in Sheffield.
