McDonald’s Introduces Vegan Menu Item at Their Chicago HQ

By Carly Sitzer

McDonald’s is the latest fast food company to embrace the vegan lifestyle: The chain restaurant titan has introduced the McAloo Tikki, a meat-free menu item at their headquarters restaurant in Chicago. 

The new item — a meat-free favorite at McDonald’s all over India — has been introduced at the HQ restaurant along with other international favorites, to show customers what McDonald’s has to offer around the globe. In a press release, McDonald’s Owner/Operator Nick Karavites said, “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 release describes McAloo Tikki as “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 an eggless creamy tomato mayo.”
