New for Veganuary is the Teriyaki Plant with a plant-based patty with fable pulled shiitake mushrooms, teriyaki sauce, applewood vegan cheese, grilled peppers, spring onions, umami mayo and salad with homemade rosemary chips. This burger will be available in all locations in January.

In addition to the plant-based versions of the popular Honest and Tribute, the new restaurant will also offer other brand new options such as buffalo, pesto and chilli burgers.

The latter consists of a plant-based patty with vegan bacon, smoked cheese, cranberry sauce and rocket.
International expansion for fable food
Fable Food is an Australian brand that uses mushrooms to make very realistic meat alternatives. Last year the company told the vegconomist that a lot of people had tried their products without realizing that it wasn’t beef.
Fable had a successful year in 2021. In August, the company raised $ 6.5 million in grants and announced a partnership with celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal to create a burger for Australian chain Grill’d. Then, last month, Fable entered the US by launching it at the vegan restaurant chain Beatnic, formerly known as byChloe.
“We love everything Honest Burgers stands for – creating delicious food using fresh, high-quality ingredients from responsible sources and serving incredibly delicious, homemade British burgers from scratch,” said Dan Joyce, Head of Growth at Fable. “It’s a real thrill to work with them to add our Fable Pulled Shiitake Mushrooms to their menu and to expand their already extensive plant-based range.”
