“Plant-based meats are on a steady rise, and I find it important to adapt by offering menu options that could reach a broader audience of diners,” says Chef Sofia.”We want to serve customers who live a plant-based diet or someone who is simply feeling adventurous and wants to try something new. Of all the available options, I find that Better Balance is best tasting, and allows me to create delicious dishes for all our patrons without compromising flavor and texture.”
