Fully veganized comfort classics

Compassion Meals offers plant-based diners bac’n mac and cheese and Nashville hot chick’n

With the number of U.S. consumers identifying as vegan growing from 1% to 6% (that’s a 600% increase, folks) in recent years according to Forbes, it’s no surprise the Farm-to-Fork Capital has seen a surge in vegan pop-ups. One of the new rising stars is Compassion Meals, which is run by vegan chef and fashion model, Nkoyo Adakama. Compassion Meals offers “American comfort classics with a creative vegan twist,” says Adakama, who is constantly creating new recipes. Some of her past events have served barbecue “ribs,” bac’n mac and cheese, Nashville hot chick’n and fried chick’n doughnut sandwiches. At her pop-up on June 29 from noon to 5 p.m. at Tower Brewing, Adakama will serve a fully veganized original and nacho cheese fried chick’n concha sandwich. If you can’t make it, you can also buy her meals online at compassionmeals.com. Keep an eye on Adakama and her creations for Compassion Meals as she hints that big plans are coming soon.
