The KFC inspired vegan chicken is so worth it!

Really Happy Chicken sold out of their vegan chicken dishes in just a few hours since opening its doors in Brighton today.

The fast-food shop makes its vegan chicken from seitan- a wheat protein that makes it “look, taste and feel like the real deal.”

Customers were able to enjoy fried chicken burgers, hot wings, fillets, shakes, and popcorn chicken.

RHC’s first few customers were a mix of locals and vegan food enthusiasts from beyond Brighton and Sussex.

And, many took to social media to rave about the dishes they tasted.

Herbivorous_life said: “I had the privilege of being one of the first customers & I’m glad to say- it was so worth it!

“It was difficult to choose what to order because everything sounded so enticing, but as someone who loves spice, I went with the buffalo burger and it did not disappoint. 

“Also had an Oreo shake which was so delicious, thick and creamy.”

?After spending the week soaking up the sun & eating my way through my favourite city…it was probably time to leave.    ? My friends made their way home, but after hearing that @reallyhappychickn was opening on the 4th (today!), I couldn’t resist extending my trip JUST so I could try them out.    I had the privilege of being one of the first customers & I’m glad to say- it was so worth it!    ??I’ve tried a lot of vegan chicken in my time and this was definitely up there.    It was difficult to choose what to order because everything sounded so enticing, but as someone who loves spice, I went with the buffalo burger and it did not disappoint ?   ??Also had an Oreo shake which was so delicious, thick and creamy.    ??Don’t judge me for dipping my chips into it (if you’ve never done that, you haven’t yet lived) ? Speaking of chips…their seasoned chips were seasonsational (ok that pun was a stretch but PHWOAAAR?)    ?Location wise it is very central – and a stones throw away from the beach. The owner and staff members were also so friendly and welcoming. This place honestly deserves to boom – and they’re also taking part in the 50% eat out to help out scheme so get your booties down there (don’t be chicken?) !    ?To top things off, I also had the pleasure of meeting the absolute geniuses and fellow foodies behind @vegan_food_uk (who are super lovely and such a b e a u t i f u l couple!). If you’re not already- make sure to follow them on Instagram and join the ‘vegan food uk’ group on Facebook.    .  .  #vegan #plantbased #veganfood #vegetarian #crueltyfree #junkfood #food #delicious #healthy #chicken #govegan #foodporn #foodie #veganlife #vegansofig #bekind #love #veganrecipes #whatveganseat #vegano #veganism #instafood #fitness #veganfoodshare #natural #health #dairyfree #vegansofinstagram #yummy #veganchicken

Fellow foodies behind the Vegan Food UK group were floored by the size of the epic burger. “Look at the size of that vegan burger,” Janine said whilst posing for a picture.

‘See you tomorrow’

The restaurant’s opening has been a hit, and while RHC ran out of supplies and couldn’t last till until 10pm as promised, the team is gearing up to feed “hungry punters” all over again.
