NZ’s first takeaway banana blossom fish!
Vegan version of Kiwi classic - NZ’s first takeaway banana blossom fish!
Fish and chips on the beach has got to be the most “Kiwi-as” summer tradition. But with the global movement towards sustainability and plant-based eating, many Kiwis are now trading in their favourite meat dishes for vegan alternatives. And that’s where Wise Boys come in.
This Tuesday (15 October 2019), Wise Boys Burgers will debut their brand new vegan beer-battered fish and chips and fish burger, both made using a plant known as banana blossom. Wise Boys have created a battered fish so realistic even your Dad wouldn’t know it’s meat-free. This will be the first time New Zealanders have been offered this super-realistic vegan alternative from their classic local takeaway shop. As usual with Wise Boys, the food will be served in fully compostable packaging from Innocent.
Keeping things local, the Boys have teamed up with Garage Project to create the tastiest, crispiest, Kiwiest beer batter ever. The two new menu offerings are:
FUSH ‘N’ CHUPS
Crispy beer-battered banana blossom ‘fish’, served with a portion of fries, slice of lemon and a housemade tangy tartare sauce:
Crispy beer-battered “fish” with lettuce, tomato, red onion, cheese, tomato relish and a housemade tangy tartare sauce all in a toasted bun:
Launch of the fush
When: Tuesday October 15,
Where: The food truck will be parked up on Te Hā O Hine Place (in front of Auckland Art gallery), as well as the Wise Boys store in the heart of Grey Lynn.
