eco-friendly vegetarian fast food
Otarian is a vegetarian, European fast-food chain that highlights carbon, rather than calorie, count. Menu items, which include veggie burgers, tacos, Asian stir-fries, Indian curries, salads, soups, and sides, list how much energy is saved by consuming that dish versus a more meat-heavy version. Entrees are around $7-9 and sides are around $4. The menu clearly indicates which items are vegan and which can easily be made vegan (usually by leaving off the cheese).
In line with their environmental theme, Otarian uses biodegradable utensils and its employees are only allowed to give 1 napkin to each customers.
