From ABC7 News:
Laricia Chandler, also known as “Chef Fab,” opened Can’t Believe It’s Not Meat soon after she and her family adopted a vegetarian diet. She reimagined comfort food staples like Italian beef sandwiches, cheeseburgers, and pizza puffs into meatless munchies that impressed her friends and acquaintances.
“People’s first phrase would be ‘Oh my god I can’t believe this isn’t meat,” she said. “So I’m like, we should do a restaurant and call it ‘Can’t Believe It’s Not Meat.'” The restaurant’s menu was inspired by Chef Fab’s cravings. She was five months pregnant when first getting the restaurant off the ground. “The Big Mik,” a vegan take on a fast-food giant’s popular burger, is a best seller. “People literally order like five at a time,” Baker said.
