Henry's Burgers

An all-vegan burger joint that's as good for the planet as it is for your tastebuds.

At Fitzroy burger bar Henry's, you won't find any animal products. What you will find is a plant-based offering out to prove that what's good for the planet can also be great for your tastebuds.

Here, in a plant-filled haven designed by Studio Round and Austin Maynard Architects, an all-vegan menu is innovative and packed with creative touches. It comes courtesy of Head Chef Jarrod Moore, whose flair for plant-based eats has been honed at the likes of the East Brunswick Club and The B.East. The kitchen's flipping all-natural burger patties from UK label Moving Mountains, a careful concoction of mushrooms, beetroot juice, coconut oil, and pea, soy and wheat proteins designed to satisfy the toughest of burger critics.

You can order the likes of the Henry's Original — loaded with vegan cheddar, pickles and special sauce ($14) — or the Schnitzroy, rocking a southern-fried 'pretender-loin' ($14). 'Disco' fries feature beer-battered chips drenched in vegan cheese and gravy ($9), and post-burger, you can smash your ice cream craving with some vanilla bean soft serve, topped with your choice of chocolate, caramel or strawberry ($4.50). Meanwhile, the drinks list runs from vegan thickshakes and house-made lemonade to a tidy selection of natural wines and local beers.

And you can bet the sustainability angle extends well beyond the cruelty-free fare. All Henry's packaging is either compostable or recyclable, food scraps are composted locally and both the menu and kitchen have been designed to minimise waste as much as possible.
