Burger King Japan goes bunless for latest plant-based offering

The item is throughout the country until September 2.

Burger King Japan is ditching its toasted sesame buns for its latest plant-based offering.

Instead, the chain’s new “Version 2” of the Plant-Based Whopper will use soy-based patties created by Aussie food tech v2food to sandwich lettuce, sliced tomatoes, onions, pickles, ketchup and mustard.

The item is throughout the country until September 2.

Burger King Japan will also be the first to offer the double v2food patties as a replacement for the Plant-Based Whopper buns.
