Leading law firm Blake Morgan has advised Miami Burger on the opening of its first UK super-healthy, plant-based, fast-food restaurant.

Located in the Oracle shopping centre in Reading, Miami Burger serves all the usual fast-food favourites – burgers, double burgers, ‘cheezeburgers’, onion rings, wraps, hot dogs, ‘chick’n’ burgers and much more – but as everything is ‘coincidentally’ plant-based and cooked without deep-fat fryers, all the food is ‘significantly healthier without sacrificing fantastic taste’. The new restaurant, at 10 Broad Street in the Oracle Shopping Centre, seats 135 customers.
