Popular Burger Chain Transitions To A 100% Vegan Menu
A popular burger chain in Los Angeles has ditched all animal products to transition to an entirely vegan menu.
Burgerlords — which has locations in Chinatown and Highland Park — has attributed the change in part to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Gone Back And Forth With The Idea”
“Growing up working in my family’s restaurant, I always wanted to have my own place that represented how I ate,” said Frederick Guerrero, Burgerlords owner.
“We’ve gone back and forth with the idea of going all vegan with the restaurants, so we figured that now was [as good a] time as any to make the leap.”
The new menu features indulgent dishes such as the Buffalo Ranch Tofu Burger, and Crispy Tofu Nuggets.

Vegan Menu Award
Animal welfare organization People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has honored the plant-based move with a Vegan Business Award for the chain.
“As COVID-19 forces the world to face the dangers of the meat industry, Burgerlords is busy becoming the king of delicious meat-free burgers,” said Tracy Reiman, PETA Executive Vice President.
“PETA is recognizing this beloved business’s crowd-pleasing cuisine for showing that the future of dining is vegan.”
