100+ vegan burgers for International Hamburger Day!

As International Hamburger Day or World Vegan Burger Day was coming up, I thought of making a compilation of some of the vegan burgers we have eaten over the years to celebrate!
Yes, #veganseatburgerstoo !

I hoped I would find a handful of vegan burgers for this post … turns out, I found 100 burgers! 🙂
And no, we don’t eat this every day 😉 I went back to posts from the beginning years of this blog, back to 2014!

There are burgers from restaurants and food stalls in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Luxembourg, the United Kingdom, Spain and Austria. And a handful of homemade burgers too.

The photos are just in random order, and with a link to the review of the restaurant or the event. There you can read whether we liked them or not 😉

I took all of these photos myself, but got some help from my husband in eating them 😉

Vegan bakery De Broodenier, Leuven

shop review#63 – De Broodenier is a vegan bakery in Leuven and opened in the Summer of 2020.
Finally a vegan bakery in Belgium that offers and vegan pastry ánd vegan bread! There are already several traditional bakeries offering vegan options like Danish pastry (see Frimout in Ghent, Filip and Liraz in Kuurne) and many bakeries that offer cakes and pies (see Peas in Hasselt), but a traditional vegan bakery with bread and pastry is still a rarity in Belgium.

De Broodenier is a run by brother and sister Michiel and Hilke. Hilke previously ran tea house T&Ko in Leuven, which I wrote about here.
