Winner: Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich

Restaurant: The Chickery, Washington, D.C.

Ingredients: Fried cauliflower steak spun in Buffalo sauce and topped with green leaf lettuce, tomato and ranch dressing on a sweet potato roll.

What makes it special: The Chickery specializes in chicken sandwiches, but it wanted to provide an option for vegetarian customers.

Now the item is gaining fans after debuting on the restaurant’s secret menu.
