Atlanta's cult-favorite, cleverly named plant-based eatery, Slutty Vegan, is bringing its juicy goodness to Miami for one day only.

The decadent burger-and-sandwich spot will pop up at Bar One in South Beach this Sunday from 2 to 8 p.m. The 305 visit is part of the Gettin’ Slutty Tour, now in its second year, though this trip will be the brand's first time in Miami.

Slutty Vegan has become a national name for its stuffed and stacked plant-based creations. In 2018, the concept debuted as an Atlanta-based food truck. It soon grew so popular it expanded into a permanent location.

"Since we’ve opened our brick-and-mortar location last year, we have impacted the nation in a huge way with our fast-casual junk food that is completely plant-based," founder Pinky Cole says of the tour. "Every day, people from all over the United States are standing in line for hours to experience the juicy goodness of our plant-based burgers. This is our way of paying them back."


Slutty Vegan will make its South Beach stop after people began asking for some Slutty action. "Through social media comments, messages, and the tons of Miami residents who visit our Atlanta location, we know that there are lots of people waiting for us to come to Miami," Cole says. "Miami is a city that always shows love to the Slutty Vegan brand. We cannot wait until we get to 'Sluttify' everyone in the 305."

The pop-up's menu includes 11 cleverly named sandwiches and burgers, such as One Night Stand, a plant-based patty topped with vegan bacon, American cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, and special sauce on a Hawaiian bun; Hollywood Hooker Philly, a chopped Philly cheese sandwich with grilled peppers, onions, and vegan mayo on a wheat roll; and Ménage à Trois, a plant-based patty with vegan bacon, shrimp, lettuce, tomato, and special sauce. Also on the menu is a Buffalo "chicken" sandwich, a bratwurst, and a po'boy-style special. Burger combos will sell for $13 to $15.

Slutty Vegan is known as a celebrity hot spot. Tyler Perry, Will Packer, Tiffany Haddish, Taraji P. Henson, Iyanla Vanzant, Keisha Lance-Bottoms, Porsha Williams, Jermaine Dupri, Meagan Goode, Cory Booker, Jidenna, Lena Waithe, and other stars light up their Instagram feeds with food pics.

Other cities on the 50-city trek include Durham and Charlotte, North Carolina; Charleston, South Carolina; Chicago; New York; and Los Angeles.
