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 😉

#289 Gastronomic festive take away menu from ‘t Vijfde Seizoen (3), Aalter

restaurant review #289 – ‘t Vijfde Seizoen is a gastronomic restaurant in Aalter (between Bruges and Ghent). This literally translates as ‘the fifth season’. In ‘normal’ (non lockdown) times, there is always a vegetarian menu standardly available, which can be veganised upon request (it’s advised to ask it in advance).I already posted two reviews of respective visits to ‘t Vijfde Seizoen here.

#286 Vegan pie and more at Karbon, Ghent

restaurant review #286 – This review is from a visit to Karbon in the beginning of October 2020, before the second lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic were enforced. Karbon is a new place in Ghent, where you can order take away (big counter with options stalled out) or eat in the restaurant itself. It is in the city center, not far from the Belfry. We were here on the opening day (Oct 9), as we had seen a post from Chez Mariette delivering vegan pies to Karbon. They also offer several vegan lunch and dinner options, or you can ask to have your dish veganised. Vegan breakfast is also possible. Vegan options are not labeled on menu, so you need to ask. Vegetarian options can mostly be veganised (eg leave out feta).

#285 Delicious tapas in beautiful historic setting, Atelier Flori, Bruges

restaurant review #285 – Atelier Flori is a vegan wine and tapas bar in the center of Bruges. It opened at the end of 2019. It is a bit tucked away in the Korte Vuldersstraat, near ‘t Zand. This review is from a visit to Atelier Flori in September 2020, before the second lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic were enforced. The menu only offers a handful of light options (e.g. nachos with dip), as this is primarily a wine bar. We chose the vegan etagère for two (32€) and it was magnificent! With homemade vegan cheezes, lasagne, avocado spread, a small glass of soup, bread, fresh vegetables and much more.More than enough for the two of us! We had some alcohol free drinks (lemnade 3,50€, mocktail 5€). For dessert we shared a chocolate mousse (made with aquafaba) with whip (5€). Nice! We enjoyed the beautiful decor. The bar is located in an old historic building in the city centre of Bruges. It used to be the painting studio (atelier) of painter Flori Van …
