Even the most ethical eater craves junk food from time to time, but rather than pushing it until you cave, waking to an empty KFC bucket and waves of regret, indulge your fast food cravings at Soul Burger, the all-vegan burger bar taking Sydney by storm. The flagship venue is in Randwick, but now they’ve expanded their operation to Glebe, only a few doors down from the Cruelty Free Shop. It looks just like any other burger bar, with a simple timber and monochrome fit out, some classic hits on the stereo and a milkshake machine behind the counter, but they’re using coconut milk, not dairy. You can see right into the kitchen because their plant-based patties have nothing to hide. A cheeseburger features a refreshingly unsweetened bun with an impressively beef-like patty, a slice of vegan cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomato, relish and an egg-free mustard aioli. It’s filling and virtuous and comes pretty close to the original – only the juicy savouriness is missing but maybe some more salt would fix it. The mushroom burger is at the total other end of the spectrum – it might be too juicy – so load up on napkins before you tuck in.
