You can give your love a fried chicken - or vegan 'Chick-Un' - bouquet for Valentine's Day

Woo your meat-free boo, or tell that special someone "I clucking love you"

Is the way to your love's heart through their stomach? Is their love language edible? Say "I love you" with fried chicken - or its plant-based swap - instead, thanks to a set of sibling Vancouver restaurants tying a ribbon around one of their signature menu items.

Back again for another Valentine's Day, Juke Fried Chicken is offering its "Let's Cluck!" fried chicken bouquet. Move over roses: These bouquets feature eight juicy, crispy, seasoned pieces of Juke's fried chicken in decorative wrap. Priced at $29, this once-a-year special is available for pre-order via Juke's website; pick up at the Chinatown restaurant on Feb. 14.

As a delightful alternative, Juke's sibling spot, the fully plant-based Beetbox, is getting in on the action by offering its own V-Day bouquet, but here, the "V" stands for vegan. Beetbox's Fried Chick-Un Finger Bouquet includes a dozen of the casual resto's popular Fried Chick-Un Fingers (breaded and fried seitan) accompanied with housemade Maple Mustard Dip packaged in decorative Valentine’s Day wrap. Ringing up at $24, you can woo your meat-free boo by placing an order online, and picking it up from Beetbox on Feb. 14.
