Vegan Burg


We decided to go healthy this week (and alas, fine dining options were out since the little boy was tagging along with us) and check out Vegan Burg. The concept of healthy vegetarian burgers piqued our interest since that seemed to be the ultimate oxymoron.

We had the Hawaiian Pineapple (pan-grilled pineapple slice, soya patty glazed with sweet plum sauce) and the Smokey BBQ (oven-baked patty of minced mushrooms, smokey BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato and alfafa, organic rye bread): $10.85 for a set including seaweed fries and a drink. Reminding me more of sandwiches rather than burgers, these creations were decent but unspectacular, with the most memorable part being the sauces. Surprisingly for an outlet trumpeting the health benefits of its meals, the seaweed fries were crispy and not shy on the salt.


I liked the casual chillax ambience and decor, and that the burgers came in cute mess-tins (army boys will probably think this is a minus point). The little boy got his own mess-tin to eat his puffs off too :-) So is the food worth going back for? Probably not, I've had better "healthy food" elsewhere. So will we go back? Yes, for the ambience and the ease of touting a baby there.

N.B. As I typed out this post, I suddenly got cravings for Onaka's wonderfully tasty and healthy dishes - their dumplings, thunder tea rice, salads, in fact just about everything, are simply delicious! Hmm, a visit back to my old workplace is in order.
