This Friday 28th May is World Vegan Burger Day, and what a better way to show the world vegan burgers are not only delicious and versatile, but also better for the animals and the environment, than with this dedicated day.
Vegan burgers simply put, are burgers that contain no meat, egg or dairy. Most vegan patties are made from soy beans or tofu, or sometimes from plant-based meat alternatives!

- The Burgerie – Auckland
Looking for an alternative to your usual? This fast food joint is one of Auckland’s best kept secrets. This hidden gem really is ‘a diamond in the rust‘. The joint’s best seller is the famous Kiwi Burger but also their Soya Tower Burger. If your looking for a greasy yet decadent option this WVBD, The Burgerie is the place to go. Unfortunately they don’t have a website, so you’ll have to experience it for yourself!
- BurgerFuel – AKL, Tauranga, Hamilton, Rotorua, Te Awamutu, Palmerston North, CHCH, Timaru & WLGN
A classic but such a goodie. BurgerFuel is famous across the country for both their vegan and non-vegan options, meaning if you have an omnivore joining you this Friday, then this is the perfect spot for the both of you.
