Plant-based menu proving popular at chicken-centric Fingers Wings and Other Things in Conshohocken

The “other things” at Fingers Wings and Other Things use to be burgers and cheesesteaks. Now it is the growing plant-based portion of the menu that owner Craig Flaxman has been working on for about two years.

When the pandemic struck, Flaxman noticed that the demand for plant-based dishes was growing and began to explore different options beyond the Impossible Burger that had been added to many local menus and even at Burger King.

One of Finger Wings and Other Things’ most popular plant-based items is the Improbable Chicken Cheesesteak which Flaxman developed after discovering the shredded protein alternative to chicken at a food show in Baltimore.

The ‘Works!’ is filled with meatless chicken steak, fried onions, peppers, mushrooms, marinara, and American cheese (with an option to sub vegan cheese).

Flaxman was flabbergasted when the vendor moved to discontinue the product due to the lack of sales and was told that he was the only one regularly buying it. Flaxman implored them to keep it because he was selling several a day. Luckily, he was able to continue securing the product through a special order.

The Eggplant Fries are lightly battered and served with marinara.

The Falafel Pita has hummus, tzatziki sauce, cucumber, tomato, and red onion. Served with French fries.

The Impossible Burger is a meatless burger topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, and American cheese (with the option to sub vegan cheese).

The dairy-free Tahini Shake is a 12 ounce “thick and creamy” vegan milkshake made with almond milk ice cream and tahini (which is made by grinding sesame seeds). Vanilla and chocolate options are available.

There are several other plant-based menu items. You can view the entire menu at Fingers Wings and Other Things menu here and it is available for dine-in, takeout, and delivery.
