Casey’s Corner has a new hitter on the team, the Plant-Based Slaw Dog. The new vegan dog comes as a meal with your choice of apple slices or French fries and costs $11.49.
There are 3 different components that make this dish possible. First, we have the dog itself which is a Hot Italian Beyond Sausage by Beyond Meat. Next, we have the slaw, comprised of cabbage, white onions, fresh cilantro, shredded rainbow carrots, kale, corn, peppers, and BBQ vegan aioli. Finally, the dog is wrapped in a soft warm bun for completion.
The Slaw Dog as a whole was very tasty. The sausage had a nice snap when bitten into, and the slaw was flavorful and creamy. We chose French fries as our side, and those were as good as they can get for Disney fries.
However, despite the sausage being a Hot Italian, it did not come at a hot enough temperature for our liking. The sausage was also lacking any spice or flavor. When eating the sausage alone, it was puzzling to figure out if all the flavor was just in the slaw and the BBQ vegan aioli on top… but then again, that’s kind of how hot dogs usually work. (The condiments form a large part of the flavor profile.)
Nevertheless, the Plant-Base Slaw Dog did not hit a home run, but it did make the team. Menu options like this make it so that everyone can have peace of mind when eating at Walt Disney World.
