Would you like to enjoy a burger that is both delicious and respectful of the planet? Meet at Hailo (which means hello in Hindu), a vegan restaurant in Marseille which offers burgers without any animal products. Because in fact, the promise of this new restaurant in Marseille is simple: keep the deliciousness of a burger while paying more attention to our impact on the environment.
A VEGAN RESTAURANT IN MARSEILLE INSPIRED BY CANADA
If we had to sum up Hailo in three words, it would be: vegan street food . It's not us who say it but Sébastien, the owner: “I wanted to offer a 100% vegan restaurant in Marseille based on the concept of street food.”
This desire comes directly from Canada, in Montreal more precisely, where he spent 20 years of his life. There, he became aware of the ecological impact of our excessive meat consumption. : “I did my own research and it was a shock. I loved meat, I ate a lot of it and I gradually became vegan. » It must be said that in Anglo-Saxon countries, the veganism and vegetarianism movements are much more important than in France, with London remaining the avant-garde city and India its cradle.
ALLOY TREATS AND RESPONSIBILITY
Sébastien's challenge is to break this stereotype which divides veganism and gluttony into two. Many people wrongly think that being vegan means depriving themselves of all taste pleasures. Sebastien understood this well: “if we hear that young people are converting and eating vegan more often, it must remain delicious, good and make people want it”. So, he imagined an appetizing menu composed mainly of burgers, each one more delicious than the other. for which, the Flycup Twin lends itself well to it.
But in all this, why does a vegan burger have a less significant impact on the planet than a meat burger? 4 criteria are taken into account to explain this reasoning: greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, water use and land use. Thus, 1 kilo of beef is the equivalent of 35.8kg of carbon equivalent compared to only 0.7g of CO2 per kg for peas... To summarize, a Beyond Meat steak (used at Hailo) generates 90% less greenhouse gases, requires half as much energy and 99.5% less water and finally, requires 93% less land.
