Vegan Drive-thru Plant Power Fast Food has expanded to Encinitas, California - and taken over the site of a former Burger King.

The second location of the vegan fast food eatery is the beach city of San Diego, and it is believed to be among the country's first drive-thru vegan restaurants.

The restaurant chain believes that 'one of the most powerful decisions that any of can make is to decrease the amount of animal products in our diet'.

Healthy fast food

Ocean Beach-based Plant Power Fast Food calls itself 'FREE drive-through experience', because their menu is cholesterol-free, meat-free, dairy-free, and GMO-free, according to co-founder Zach Vouga.

"The interest in convenient, healthy food is growing exponentially as a result of the medical challenges facing many Americans today," Vouga added.

The vegan eatery serves 'fast food with a healthy twist', including plant-based nuggets, burgers, desserts, and specialties such as the 'Fillet O'Fishless' and 'Canadian Bacon, Provolone & Egg Muffin'.

Plant Power is also committed to being affordable, with prices ranging from $6.25 to $8.95.
