Popular restaurant chain TGI Fridays recently revealed its UK Christmas menu. The menu’s food selections feature very festive names and a few vegan options.
Guests who prefer meatless and dairy-free meals can start their dinner or lunch off with the Pomegranate & Avocado Houmous appetizer. The bean-based dip is “served with garlic ciabatta bread, tortilla chips, and topped with pomegranate seeds,” Birmingham Live reported.
For the main course, vegan customers can order the Festive Roasted Vegetable Fajitas. The dish’s roasted vegetables are “spiked with tequila and lime” and “served with a selection of dips and warm tortillas.”
Not surprisingly, the Christmas drink menu is full of sweet delights. Guests can order any of the following.
The Jingle Bell Punch contains “Stolichnaya premium vodka, Midori melon liqueur, and grenadine mixed with cranberry and blueberry juices,” Birmingham Live reported.
The Christmas Long Beach Iced Tea features “Stolichnaya premium vodka, Bombay Sapphire gin, Havana Club 3-Year-Old rum, and triple sec,” and is “topped with citrus juices and cranberry juice,” Birmingham Live continued.
The aptly named Jack Frost contains “Jack Daniel’s®, triple sec, sweet & sour, and Schweppes® lemonade with a sugar rim,” and the Cranberry Sparkle has “Archers peach schnapps, Stolichnaya premium vodka, and cranberry juice poured over Prosecco,” Birmingham Live added.
And finally, the Purple Snowstorm features “Havana Club 3-Year-Old rum, blue curaçao, Stolichnaya premium vodka, and Chambord with sweet & sour, a drizzle of grenadine and a sugar rim.”
Customers who prefer to abstain from alcohol can order the Blueberry Blitzen Mocktail, which has blueberry and apple juice, sweet & sour, and elderflower. It’s topped with soda.
TGI Fridays has unveiled various vegan items recently. The chain sells the vegan Beyond Burger in all locations in the U.S. and in all Taiwanese TGI Fridays. In the UK, customers can order the Smoked Tomato Bruschetta, Roasted Veg Alfredo Pasta, Garlic Ciabatta Bread, Avocado Houmous, and a Garlic Veg Fajita.
“Fridays has always been on the cusp of new food trends in the UK, and we felt the time was right to put a focus on new vegan items on our menu to cater to the ever-increasing demand,” Terry McDowell, head of food and drink at TGI Fridays UK and creator of the new menu, told Get Surrey of the shift.
