Minnesota's Mall of America is welcoming Texas-based vegan chain Earth Burger into its hallowed halls in 2018, according to Vegan News. MOA is the largest shopping mall in the United States, so you know there has been many a weary vegan looking hopefully around the food court in between shopping splurges. They need look no further.
