McDonald’s is getting into the market for meatless burgers with the new McPlant. It’s a hamburger with no ham. Scratch that, it’s a hamburger with no beef, either. By this weekend, it should be available at a small number of American McDonald’s outlets. It’s not the first meatless fast food burger, as Burger King has been selling the Impossible Burger for a couple of years now.
Despite the name, the McPlant is not vegan, although it may be pass as vegetarian. It is normally served with cheese and mayonnaise, and it will be cooked on the same grill as regular burgers, at least in the US. In the UK, the McPlant is grilled on a separate cooking surface, and the cheese and mayo are also made of plants, making it certified vegan burger.

But how does it taste? Mat Smith has tried it and he says, “it tastes like… a McDonald’s burger.” Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing is entirely up to you. Read the rest of his review at Engadget. -via Fark
