3 BEST VEGAN BURGERS IN LONDON

In honour of national burger day, I thought I’d share my 3 favourite vegan burgers from London (and its surrounding areas). These 3 burgers are proof of how delicious and flavourful veggie burgers can be, and I’m pretty sure that by the end of this post you’ll be craving a big, delicious veggie burger (I know I am)!

1. Mildred’s Classic Burger

The classic burger from Mildred’s is without a doubt my favourite burger of all time. The burger patty contains smoked tofu, lentils and piquillo peppers, and is served in a fluffy focaccia bun with relish, rocket, red onion and tomato. It is bursting with flavour and tastes even better when accompanied by a portion of Mildred’s delicious chunky chips.

Mildred’s now has 3 locations across London: Soho, Camden & Kings Cross, so there is even more opportunity to try out one of these delicious burgers for yourself!

2. Fortify Café’s Falafel Burger

As a big fan of falafel, I am an even bigger fan of Fortify Café’s delicious falafel burger! It is served in a big wholemeal bun, with creamy mint yoghurt sauce and a huge, flavourful garden salad on the side.

Fortify Café is located in Maidstone in Kent, just outside of London, and is definitely worth a visit!

3. VBites Café’s Hickory Chick Burger

VBites Café has a huge variety of veggie burgers on their menu and I particularly love their Hickory Chick Burger. It contains smokey, glazed BBQ chicky pieces, and is served on a toasted bun with coleslaw and delicious skinny fries on the side.

VBites Café is located in the beautiful Brighton, just outside of London, meaning you can enjoy a walk along the beach after eating a delicious burger.

I would love to hear if you guys have tried any of these burgers and/or what your favourite veggie burgers are?

Fortify Café Maidstone

After finding this list of six great vegan/vegan-friendly restaurants to visit in Kent, I checked out Fortify Café‘s extensive menu and instantly knew we had to check it out!

My mum and I visited the Café for lunch earlier this week and were warmly welcomed by James, the lovely owner, and his friendly staff. The restaurant, situated in Maidstone, has a great, cosy atmosphere and was full of packed full of customers throughout the afternoon – a testament to how delicious the food is!

The entire menu is 100% vegan and is an amazing example of how varied vegan food can be. Whether you fancy a toastie, a kebab, a burger, or a quiche – Fortify Café has got you covered! Needless to say, we were spoiled for choice but eventually managed to decide on what to order and everything was absolutely delicious!

DRINKS ▽▼▽▼▽

My mum ordered a freshly squeezed orange juice which she enjoyed so much that I didn’t even have a chance to snap a picture before it disappeared! I decided to go for a chocolate milkshake, which was creamy and delicious.

MAINS ▽▼▽▼▽

It was so hard to chose between all of the main course options but I finally decided on the falafel burger, whilst my mum went for the frittata. Both dishes were absolutely delicious and were served with huge, refreshing salads – the potato salad in particular was amazing!

DESSERT ▽▼▽▼▽

For dessert we shared the rocky road with vanilla ice-cream, which was honestly the best, creamiest ice-cream I have ever eaten! My mum also took advantage of the huge variety of dairy-free milks on offer and ordered an oat milk latte which she enjoyed very much!

Side note: How cute of an idea is ‘The Happy News’ newspaper?!

My mum and I absolutely loved everything we ate/drank at Fortify Café and fully intend to work our way through the rest of the menu! Thank you so much to James and his lovely team for a delicious meal.
