“We know Katsu curry is one of the nation’s favourite flavours, so we can’t wait for people to try these twists on our classic Whopper® and Royale.”

Burger King UK has introduced a Japanese-inspired Katsu Curry range, including two new meat-free katsu burgers.

The katsu range is for a limited period only  and will be available in participating restaurants from 8th March until September 2022.

The new Katsu Vegan Royale features a meat-free Royale chicken patty, katsu sauce, pickled slaw, crispy onion, and the chain’s signature vegan mayo.

Meanwhile, the Katsu Plant-Based Chilli Whopper comes with two meatless Whopper patties, chilli sauce, crispy onion, pickled slaw, and katsu curry sauce.

Both new burgers are served-up in golden vegan-friendly buns complete with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

According to Burger King, the new Katsu burgers taste similar to traditional meat burgers. Furthermore, the vegan iterations cost the same as their meat-based counterparts.

 The Katsu Royales is priced at £6.29 and £8.29 in a meal. While the Katsu Chilli Whopper burgers cost £7.29 and £9.29 in a meal.

‘Can’t wait’

Katie Evans from Burger King UK said in a statement: “We know Katsu curry is one of the nation’s favourite flavours, so we can’t wait for people to try these twists on our classic Whopper® and Royale.

“We’re promising new specials that max on flavour, with vegan and vegetarian options that taste almost identical.”

 Burger King has been steadily increasing its plant-based range amid soaring demand. Moreover, the new options are part of a strategy to make half of its menu meat-free by 2031 in line with its long-term commitment to reduce its carbon footprint.

Plant-based options at Burger King

Last year, the fast-food chain brought back its plant-based Rebel Whopper and launched a Vegan Society-certified Vegan Royale burger. In addition, it added vegan chicken nuggets made in collaboration with The Vegetarian Butcher.

Burger King has also launched a variety of plant-based burgers worldwide. Most recently, it added its plant-based products to its menu in 25 countries in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa with The Vegetarian Butcher.  The partnership has led to the launch of the Whopper Vegetal in Mexico, vegan chicken nuggets in Germany, and the Plant-Based Whopper in China.
