Happy Veggie World

Happy Veggie Faux/Mock Meat Supplier in Richmond

If a Vegan “chicken” nugget looks like a chicken nugget and tastes like a chicken nugget, is it a chicken nugget? – Jacob H.

After hearing about Happy Veggie World from friends over the past 3 years, I finally got to visit them in Richmond this October. My god, what was I waiting for? (Actually, I went twice before, but showed up when they were closed… Woops! My bad!) So, I hope this post inspires you so that you don’t make the same mistake I did. For your faux meats and mock jerkys (jerky’s?), hit up Happy Veggie World! If you don’t at first succeed, try again!

Damn, look at that texture!
Happy Veggie has two locations for your convenience. I visited their Main Office/warehouse at #378 – 13988 Cambie Road, Richmond, BC.
Their store location is at #105 – 8231 Cambie Road, Richmond.

Their chicken drumsticks are pretty amazing. They have a nice chewy texture and a sweet savory flavor. Not too strong. Like a lot of Taiwanese food products, they’re really well-balanced.

After stocking up my freezer with my first Happy Veggie World food haul, I heated up some (okay, a lot) of oil and deep-fried these “chicken” drumsticks and their non-sentient nugget cousins.

The nuggets were my fave: they’re crispy with that ever-satisfying crunch sound as you bite into them, and that warm inviting welcome of the chewy yet soft inside that I remembered from McNuggets from McDicks (Hey, by the way, McDonald’s, hurry up with your vegan burgers and McNuggets, already! It’s 2019. Thanks 😛 And yes, I’ll have fries with that :)…)


After posting these vegan goodies on my IG, my friend asked me: “if a Vegan ‘chicken’ nugget looks like a chicken nugget and tastes like a chicken nugget, is it a chicken nugget? No, Jacob, no… it is not a chicken nugget.  ^^

Hey, guys! I’m Vegan – I mean, Antony! I love to eat! Actually, I work out so I can eat more. Other than food, I love consuming knowledge from books, videos, and podcasts. What an amazing time to be alive, eh? Some other things I love to do include traveling (who doesn’t??), cooking, acting and gettin’ tipsy at KTV. To connect, you can find me on Instagram where I post food pics, gym progress pics, and other really random crap.
