When I used to travel to Singapore, I always made sure to stop at VeganBurg – a country-wide vegan burger joint that prided itself on healthy vegan options.
So when I heard their first (and only) US location was in the heart of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury, I knew I needed to go.
While the menu options seemed little lighter than I remember, the space itself was really nice, clean, and bright. I ordered the “Cracked Mayo” burger with seaweed fries (not as hippy as they sound, I promise), and Kristin ordered the Smoked Franks with a side of fries. Landen went with the standard – Chicken Tenders.
My burger was more of a chicken type sandwich, but it was super good. I do wish in hindsight I went with the BBQ burger, but I’ll wait til next time. The franks were actually really good and were just about the best vegan hot dog I can remember. Landen’s tenders seemed a lot like Gardein’s recipe (and probably were).
What really impressed me was the space. Haight-Ashbury can be a little on the seedy side, so it was really cool to see a vegan establishment put away the tie die and patchouli, and go with a bright and clean space.
In addition to the open seating area, there was a really clean and well laid out beverage station.
Overall I was really happy to finally step foot into a US-based VeganBurg! Now if only they would expand and maybe consider a Portland location!!??
