You know, I used to love eating vegan burgers when I was in California. I would buy the frozen patties from the supermarkets, try different types, and I generally prefer those made with textured vegetable protein (TVP) as they had more bite and chew. I kinda still miss that luxury. Anyway, I was mighty pleased when Vegan Burg came to existence but somehow just didn't have the opportunity to try until very recently.
Located near Ubi MRT, the restaurant is just off the main road but parking could be a problem because there's limited parking. You gotta park behind in the estates.
Vegan Burg serves a few types of burgers, all the TVP type and I got the BBQ burger which came with a sunflower and walnut wholemeal bun that I enjoyed very much despite it being a gluten-bomb. The patty itself had quite an enjoyable texture but the BBQ sauce was really the key flavor contributor, so much so, it got a bit overwhelming after a while. The fresh vegetables helped cut the richness a little.
I also got a side order of tofu-dogs, which weren't too bad actually. The snap from the casing was obviously missing but the taste kinda grows on you.
Veggie burger craving satisfied :) Have you ever thought about why vegetarians like / would want to have "fake" meat? I guess for meat eaters who want to make the switch to vegetarianism, such mock meats would make good substitutions.
Anyway, I learnt that Vegan Burg is now also opened at Raffles Place! Woots for city-workers I hope. The burgers are not cheap but they are rather niche so I suppose that's the premium attached to the novelty.
Have you tried to go meatless? There's a global campaign to reduce consumption of meat by going meatless on Mondays. Try it! your body will thank you and the animals too :)
