Philadelphia, PA - Primary Plant-BasedPhiladelphia, PA - Primary Plant-Based will open on November 20. This new pop-up comes from Mark McKinney, the executive chef of Royal Tavern, Cantina Los Caballitos, Cantina Dos Segundos, Khyber Pass Pub, and Triangle Tavern.

 Philadelphia's Newest Primary Plant-Based Pop-up


Chef McKinney is renowned for his vegan dishes at Royal Burger at Royal Tavern. McKinney, a long-time vegan, has always wanted to do a plant-based concept for several years.

The 2020 pandemic has given Chef Mark time to consider what’s most important to him. Expect health, sustainability, and diversity to be some of the hallmarks of Primary Plant-Based.

“I’m very excited to launch Primary Plant-Based,” McKinney said. “Vegan cuisine is particularly close to me. I’ve been vegan most of my adult life. My vegan food is health forward with major Asian and global influences.”

Primary Plant-Based will feature a menu that changes frequently and reflects the season.

Dishes on McKinney’s first menu include Sweet Potato Toast (think shrimp toast), Spicy Peanut Mole Noodles, Maitake Mushrooms & Grits, Rou Jia Mo “meat sandwiched in bread” and Baked Churro Donuts with chocolate ganache.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of this pop-up,” says Stephen Simons, co-owner of Primary Plant-Based, Royal Boucherie, and Royal Sushi & Izakaya. “I know Chef Mark is loved in the vegan community, but I expect many of our guests to be vegan-adjacent or veg-curious. I’m a meat-eater, but at least once or twice a week, my family and I like to eat a completely plant-based meal. I think that Primary Plant-Based will make this a lot easier for us and others looking for some healthy and delicious dining options.”

Primary Plant-Based shares a kitchen with Khyber Pass Pub and is available for takeout through Khyber. Delivery is available through Primary Plant-Based will be open from 3-9 pm, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday beginning November 20, 2020, • 56 S. Second St., Philadelphia • 215.238.5888
