Whether you’ve decided to go vegan for 44 days, like Beyonce, you’re a devout plant-based eater, or you’re just looking to eat healthier every once in a while, we’ve tracked down five of the best vegan burger spots for you to try this week.
179 Loop Street, Cape Town CBD
We can testify to the awesomeness of this vegan burger. The burger consists of a chickpea patty, and vegan ‘secret sauce’, wrapped in an iceberg lettuce bun.
4 Gleneagles Road, Greenside, Johannesburg
If you reside in Jozi or happen to find yourself in the bustling city, head to Dukes for the Cleopatra Burger. The falafel patty is smothered with homemade hummus, and topped with cherry tomatoes, salsa, and drizzled with Tahini sauce, sandwiched between an egg-free bun.
37 Barrack Street, Corner of Harrington & Barrack Street, Zonnebloem, Cape Town
This has got to be the ultimate vegan burger. The Double Trouble Lekker Crispy burger at Lekker Vegan consists of two crispy fried patties, melted vegan cheddar, the Lekker OG sauce, fried onion rings, lettuce and tomato, topped with vegan sour cream and onion chips. Now that’s a mouthful!
The Greenside Café
34 Gleneagles Rd, Greenside, Johannesburg
This vegan burger is for the devout health nut. Made from edamame beans, brown rice, ginger, miso, and wrapped in nori; this burger will go down a treat.
11 Orphan St, Cape Town City Centre
Arguably, this place serves up some of the best vegan fare in Cape Town, if not South Africa. So obviously their vegan burger would be one of the best in the game. Try the Oh Sweet Kim burger, complete with quinoa, kimchi, avocado and a lentil patty.
