Vurger Co - Shoreditch
Time for a visit to exclusively vegan burger joint 'Vurger Co' in Shoreditch, they have another branch in Canary Wharf and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for more in the near future!
It has the look and feel of a modern fast food place, it was clean, bright and well organised.
There was plenty of seating, it was pretty comfy, and pretty close together, but calm at lunch time during the week.
Servers were efficient and pleasant, and asked if we wanted to upgrade to have avocado on our meals - which of course we accepted! They had a pager system for when the food is ready rather than table service, and I actually quite like this system for fast food in general.
What I didn't like so much was how much plastic they used, they certainly do a lot of take aways, but they had plastic cutlery on the tables for people staying in, served my milkshake in a one use only plastic cup, and put a meal inside a take away cup. I thought that they could have done better with reusable equipment for all of these things for inside diners.

Beyond meat patty, topped with double vegan cheese, gherkins and house made burger sauce.
All of the above can be served bun free, in a bowl.
I went for the 'Big Mex', and I think it's the biggest burger I've ever eaten, the number of extremely tasty layers was insane, and they all contributed to such a delicious taste. The patty was a spicy vegetable patty, I've been having so many meat like burgers of late that it was so nice to have something different, it was breaded on the outside, fluffy, and so tasty. The vegan cheese complimented it well, the avocado was super fresh, and the crispy onions were the best addition to a burger ever. It full of fiery spice, just like a Tex Mex burger should be!
My mum had an auburger bowl - which is basically a deconstructed burger with no bun. It was a spicy and soft burger, crispy on the outside but internally had the texture of sweet potato, it was dressed with good amounts of vegan mayonnaise and had plenty of different salads with it, all fresh and tasty.
The milkshake was really appreciated with all the spiciness of the burger and the Oreo one was delicious! There are plenty of milkshake choices; Oreo, Strawberry, Banana Caramel, Biscoff, Chocolate hazelnut, Banana, and Salted caramel popcorn. There is also an option to add vegan whipped cream, which I did, and if you want, the option to add rum or whisky.
It was creamy, incredibly choclatety and had small pieces of delicious Oreo all the way through it.
