“In fact, the Grand Hyatt’s JUST Egg sandwich is currently the most-reviewed dish on the plant-focused food app A Billion Veg.

Taste test

JUST Egg won positive praise from top bloggers Toni Okamoto of Plant-Based On A Budget, and Michelle Cehn of World of Vegan who taste-tested the product for Plant Based News.

After sampling the egg, Okamoto said: “I think it’s really good. I think the texture is good, I used to eat eggs like they were going out of style…it tastes very familiar.”

Cehn added: “It looks exactly like eggs. That is crazy – and the color – the color is spot on. I’m so in awe of this.”
