No matter which street you happen to stumble upon in The 6ix, there’s a fried chicken restaurant. Which is not surprising, considering the popularity of the dish among many. However, it definitely leaves out the vegetarians and vegans, but maybe not for longer. The city’s new vegan fried chicken joint, Blissful Bird, is now serving what it calls, ‘plant based fried chickun’.
So what exactly is fried chickun? Their version is made with non-GMO tofu, gluten free flours and pea protein. The menu features sandwich combos like Chicken Parm and What The Cluck. They also have chickun bowls, that each come with brown rice. You can pick different sauce bases, like masala, coconut curry and tahini.
The vegan fried chicken joint is currently operating out of Snakes and Lattes’ College Street location. You can place orders for pick-up or delivery via Ritual, Uber Eats and DoorDash. Support local by ordering from Blissful Bird throughout the pandemic. Vegans and non-vegans unite!
