Vegan Burg

The pamphlet

My foodie-colleague kept raving about this particular burger joint/cafe whenever we passed by.

That day we were at lost as to what and where for lunch so he drove around aimlessly until we came to this vicinity and he goes, "Let's have Veg Burger!" (yes, he kinda' got the name wrong).

Honestly, they only vegetarian burger that I've ever eaten before was the one from Komala's, where it comes served with these big, fat piping hot fries that's lighlty spiced. So, I guess I got really curious about a vegan place selling mainly 'burgers'.

The exterior

The interior

The place was done pretty nicely, bright, with lots of greenery and the wooden furniture were painted white, to give that rustic look and an overall down-to-earth appeal. I like!

The counter

The menu seem pretty limited, apparently. 5 types of burgers, 1 kids meal, 6 sides, 1 type of ice-cream and drinks.

Price-wise, they come across as a little steeper that your regular burger joints. Then again, it's a well-known fact that organic foods are more expensive, anyway.


Comes together in the set, with the burger and fries. (L) Orange Passionfruit (R) Apple Blackcurrant.

If you expect them to take out real, fresh fruits and put them through the juicer or something; guess you'll be disappointed. These 'juices' came from a dispenser. Seemed like the diluted fruit juice concentrate type.

Potato Spinach Pops
- $3.80 5pc

Can't help ordering this. Kinda' tempting, actually. These were freshly fried and came served to us, piping-hot ( a little over-fried, though).

A ball of mashed potato with spinach bits. Reminds me of bread-crumbed bergedil or the Japanese Korroke (croquet).

Char-Grilled Satay burger

"...satay sauce is drizzled over a tender Vegan patty, giving our Satay burger new meaning to nutty, savoury goodness. With a mild spicy kick, complemented by crisp lettuce and crunchy onion rings..."

My colleagues' order. They seem to like it. I had a bite and the patty was really tender and does taste a lil' savoury.

I think that the term, 'Vegan' patty means that it's made up of mainly soy.

The fries are normal. Slightly thicker than McD, yet not as fat as Swensens of Komala's. I think they sprinkle some seaweed on it.

Smoky BBQ burger

"...thick patty of succulent minced mushrooms, oven-baked and slathered in smokey BBQ sauce, coupled with layers of fresh lettuce, tomato and alfalfa, nestled within the softest organic rye bread..."

I love BBQ sauce so it's only natural that I have the inclination to order this. That and the mushroom patty.

The patty does carry a slightly 'earthy' mushroom taste. However it's the texture that really won me over. This one here is soft yet not mushy. And slightly chewy. Nice!

And the bread, as with typical organic breads; is light and has this robust taste which I can't really describe. I like it, though.

up close

They sure slathered on a lot of that BBQ sauce!

Interestingly enough, they do have vegetarian 'franks'. As with 'old-school hot dogs'.

I'm very much interested in the Tangy Tartar burger (maybe their take on a 'fish' burger?), the organic ginger beer/cola and
Guilt Free Chocolate Ice Cream.

... Another visit perhaps?
