White Castle is a family-owned restaurant chain located in 12 states that specializes in… mini hamburgers?
Yeah, White Castle is one of those odd fast food places that actually makes a start selling this:
A thin slice of meat, some toppings, and a slice of cheese no thinner than the meat itself, which they sell for about 75 cents to a dollar each. Mini burgers. Like, wow. They also have sliders with chicken and fish as well, but they are not as well known as the thinly sliced meat burger and the 80% of bun that it sold in bulk.
But I can’t say much, because White Castle has Veggie sliders too that they added recently, which is made using tons of vegetables, including “carrots, onions, string beans, soybeans, zucchini, peas, broccoli, corn, spinach, red pepper, garlic and parsley.” You can also buy it with Sweet Thai, Ranch, and Honey Mustard dipping sauce. It is also cooked separately from other meat products, so it remains vegan.
The sliders received a ton of good reviews when it first came out as well. So as a list, White Castle’s Vegetarian options include:
- Veggie Sliders (they reportedly made their buns Vegan as well, but I can’t find any evidence of his outside of PETA, a 2015 ingredient list does not mention this and PETA does not include sources.)
- French Fries
- Cheese Fries
- Onion Rings
- Mozzarella Sticks
They also have fish nibbles and a fish slider for those of you who are Pescaterians. They also have Cheesecake, Brownies, and Shakes for dessert. For breakfast, they have an Egg and Cheese slider, Egg and Cheese waffle slider, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Toast Sandwich, and Oatmeal, among other stuff.
White Castle is one of the many fast food restaurants who decided to incorporate vegetarian options, such as veggie burgers, into their lineup as a response to the ever-increasing demand for meat-less protein substitutes. Due to them being small, however, I suggest you buy way more than one slider.
