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?

Exploring Brighton + eating at VBites vegan restaurant

Last week my friend Anna from the Ukraine came to stay with us for a few days and we spent our time exploring London, Kent and Brighton. Anna and I have so much in common, including our love for photography, animals and eating copious amounts of delicious vegan food; so as usual, we had such a great time, took crazy amounts of pictures, hung out with some adorable rescue animals and ate as much delicious vegan food as was humanly possible!

♥ BRIGHTON ♥

One of the highlights of Anna’s visit was our girly road trip to Brighton with Alfia, Maria and Natalie. We spent the day chilling out on the beach, shopping in the little boutiques by the seafront, and eating at the awesome VBites restaurant.

By the time we arrived at Brighton after an early start and a loooong car journey filled with contact lense dramas (more deets in the vlog ;)), we were all feeling pretty hungry/some of us even a little hangry; so we decided to head straight to VBites and stuff our faces with delicious vegan food.

Natalie and Maria both ordered the Bean Burger, Alfia went for the Marinated Chicky, Anna got a Hotdog and after much deliberation (everything looked so good!) I decided to go for the Hickory Chick burger. We all absolutely loved our meals and would definitely head back to VBites next time we’re in Brighton!

Photoshoot ▷▷▷

Anna is an insanely talented photographer, so after we’d stuffed ourself with food and chilled out by the beach, we decided to pretend we were models for the day, take advantage of the beautiful scenery and do an awesome beachfront photoshoot for my clothing line. Here are some of my favourite pictures from the shoot that I’m so excited to share with you all.

All of these jumpers are available on my online store jadegreenvegan.com/shop.

♥ VLOG ♥

As well as taking crazy amount of pictures, we also made a vlog of Anna’s entire trip, so if you guys would like to see everything we got up to and all of the awesome vegan cafés/restaurants we visited be sure to watch our vlog ▷▷▷

Mildred’s Veggie/ Vegan Restaurant in London

Earlier this week, I dragged my three most veggie friends (2 vegetarians and 1 wannabe vegetarian) to Mildred’s a London vegetarian/ vegan restaurant with me!

The restaurant was packed and had a great atmosphere; so whilst we waited for a table, we started the night off with cocktails at the bar. I ordered the Porn Star, mainly for the fun of ordering it (it never gets old ordering a cocktail with a naughty name, right?! …Maybe that’s just me). Despite my immature ordering tactic, it turned out to be amazing… until I spilt it all over Maria and myself when we sat down at our table. This happens at some point on most nights out with us. I really need to work on getting my clumsiness under control.

After wiping up the spilt cocktail (and of course ordering another!) we checked out the menu which is entirely vegetarian and almost entirely vegan or can be turned into a vegan option. As two of us have been life-long vegetarians, we’re used to choosing from the small vegetarian section of menus where there is rarely more than 2 choices; so it was strange, if not a little overwhelming to be so spoilt for choice. Everything looked amazing and it definitely tasted just as good!

To start, I had the gyoza dumplings with mirin and soy dipping sauce. They were DELICIOUS!image

Then for main, I had smoked tofu and white bean sausages, with carrot parsnip and potato mash, wilted kale and pear cider gravy. So. Yummy.

We all had a great night, with amazing food and maybe a few too many cocktails! Mildred’s is definitely worth checking out, I think we’ve found our new hang out spot…mildreds
