I had been dying to try out VeganBurg after I know that it has recently opened its second outlet on 1 Feb 2012 at Golden Shoe, which is just opposite my office building! The first time that I got to know of this unique vegan burger was on television, but it only has 1 outlet at Eunos which is too far for me. Finally I found a friend who was interested to try out the organic vegan burgers with me.
This little eatery is tucked in a little corner of Golden Shoe, behind a stationery store, and one has to be alert for the signage in order to find VeganBurg haha.
The food and beverages offered in this eatery are all organic stuff, meant to be healthy, nutritious and wholesome fast food. After some time pondering on what to eat, we decided that the set meal is definitely more worth it.
Each set meal consists of a burger, a side and a juice/beverage, and there were many choices available. I ordered the Smoky BBQ burger set meal with Vegan Franks and Apple Blackcurrant Juice ($10.85) while my friend ordered the Creamy Pepper Shrooms set meal with Granny's Comfort Soup and Apple Blackcurrant Juice ($11.85).

Granny's Comfort Soup - Minestrone soup
The burger was quite big with generous fillings, that is, if you compare it to those burgers you find in typical fast food restaurants like MacDonald's.
It was really like what the menu described: a 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. In fact the fillings were so generous that I thought I ended up quite "dirty" with BBQ sauce on my lips and palms as it wasn't easy to manage haha. They also added a lot of vegetables into the burger, as you can see from the picture. Really very different from the fast food burgers! Granny's Comfort Soup
This side was what my friend ordered, but she did not realise that it was actually Minestrone soup, which she doesn't like. After a few sips she decided to just leave it aside. I also don't really like Minestrone soup so I only tried a bit as well. It was a waste that she ordered this side! We should have found out what soup that was first before ordering...Vegan Franks
On first bite, the Vegan Franks felt weird, compared to the normal Chicken Franks. Later on I realised that it was because they used tofu as the filling so it is softer than the usual meat franks. I got accustomed to the taste after a few tries and I must say actually, the taste is not bad! The franks had a delicious smoky flavour. Creamy Pepper Shrooms Burger
I didn't try this but my friend said it was very good, generous with the fillings and sauce. I think the next time I will try this, see how different it is compared to my favourite Mushroom Swiss Burger from BK hehe. Afterall, this burger is "back by popular demand" so there must be some good in it!
In general, the food and beverage prices here are not exactly that cheap, but I think it is still quite worthwhile to come here for some healthy and nutritious fast food once in a while. I will definitely go back again!
At least you are not spending this money to put junk into your stomach, are you? And who ever said that Vegan fast food can't be great, they must not have tried VeganBurg yet!;)
