According to a photo shared to alternative social media website Reddit, international fast food chain KFC is now offering vegan options at at least one location in Vietnam.


The sign shows a number of dishes with both the words 'chay' and 'vegan' printed on it.

Chay, in Vietnamese, denotes an item which is vegetarian in the strict, or traditional, sense and does not include eggs or dairy - as opposed to a lacto-ovo, or western, vegetarian which does.

The chain is planning to trial a meat-free chicken in the UK by 2019

This development follows the announcement earlier this year that KFC would be working toward developing an animal-free chicken option - following trends already picked up by such major fast food chains as A&W and McDonald's.

The chain will reportedly test run the product in the UK by 2019.
