Patrons of Spur Steak Ranches restaurants can now enjoy vegetarian and vegan friendly food at their favourite local eatery. This follows the introduction of a new plant-based menu at the restaurants across Spur in South Africa.
The official vegetarian and plant-based menu offers the option of vegan cheese. The menu includes the following meals: Veggie Schnitzel, Crumbed Veggie Burger, Bean Burger and Soya Burger. Spur-style crispy onion rings come standard as a side. Customers can choose between and chips, a baked potato or sweet potato fries.
Spur added the innovative, plant-based protein burger, Beyond Burger, to the menu from today (22 November 2019). Beyond Burger is supplied by Infinite Foods – distributors and manufacturers of the best-in-class plant-based food brands.
“As a family restaurant, the most important value for us to embody is inclusivity. In our opinion, this is synonymous with the meaning of family,” says Kevin Robertson, Chief Operating Officer, Spur Steak Ranches.
“No one family is the same. We have included options in our menu that make it possible for a group of diverse people to get together and enjoy a variety of meal options. It is therefore important that the addition of the plant-based options is well-thought out and has mouth-watering items to excite everyone,” adds Robertson.
The Nachos Mexicana (nachos smothered in zippy salsa, sticky cheese, chunky cottage cheese and guacamole) and the large cheesy quesadillas will stay as a vegetarian starter options for everyone. Vegetarians, also have the option of a Greek Salad and or fresh hot vegetables.
Robertson explains that the timing of the plant-based menu coincides perfectly with the introduction of new crockery in the Spur Steak Ranches restaurants. The crockery is in line with modern trends to complement the brand’s new look and feel.
“Spur Steak Ranches is a on a journey of transformation as a brand and business. The introduction of the plant-based menu is one of the progressive steps we are taking towards a more sustainable brand and business. Additionally, we are giving our customers greater choice, “explains Robertson.
“A major part of our success as a business is rooted in our steak house heritage. However, inclusivity is still important to us. While our meals are prepared in a kitchen that handles animal products, we still urge our customers to walk the journey with us as we evolve as a brand. We value the feedback of each and every single patron; and we’d like to continue to bring them together over great food as they create unforgettable memories.”
