Award-winning Earth Burger from San Antonio comes to Dallas, digitally
An exciting vegan burger from Alamo City is coming to Dallas: The pioneering San Antonio chain Earth Burger will be available for order at Oomi Digital Kitchen, the digital food hall at 3510 Ross Ave.
According to a release, they'll be available starting on Tuesday, January 17.
Oomi will be the first restaurant outside of South Central Texas to offer menu items from Earth Burger, an award-winning plant-based fast food chain founded in San Antonio in 2014.
Earth Burger is known for its burgers made with plant-based patties, chik-n, and “fishless” filets. The company is embarking on a national expansion expansion with assistance from Sinelli Concepts, the Dallas group founded by Jeff Sinelli that owns Which Wich Superior Sandwiches.
Oomi co-founder Markus Pineyro says in a statement that they're excited about Oomi's new partnership with Earth Burger.
"We'd been seeking plant-based offerings, so it was only natural for us to look for the best plant-based burger concept in Texas," Pineyro says.
Pineyro opened Oomi in December as a digital food hall featuring concepts created by chefs. The concept goes beyond the traditional fragmented ghost kitchen by allowing customers to choose from different restaurants in one order, facilitated by one hub. Diners can order for pick up or get delivery if they're in the right zone.
Oomi's lineup features up to 10 restaurants, which may change seasonally. Initial brands included WhichWich sandwiches, Austin-based FlyRite Chicken, Fuel America coffee, Acai Revolution, Momo Shack Dumplings, Pineyro's own concept, Urban Taco - and now Earth Burger.
In a statement, Earth Burger founder and chef Mike Behrend says "you're not settling for an average bland fast food meal at Earth Burger. Our completely meatless menu features bold recipes and sauces we create in house, bringing out the best flavor in our dishes. We want to provide a really delicious meal that just happens to be plant-based."
Oomi will give the same attention to detail to Earth Burger it has given to its other in-house brands, including the separation of ingredients—from storage to preparation and cooking—to ensure that there is no cross-contamination with its non-vegan/vegetarian items.
