Soul Burger in Randwick Is Going Vegan

Meat eaters, your days may well be numbered. Just a few short months after beloved Newtown pizzeria Gigi caused a social media meltdown by announcing they would be removing all animal products from their pizzas, another fast food eatery has embraced veganism whole hog. As of this week, Randwick's Soul Burger have ditched the beef patties and cheese slices, and shifted to a menu made up entirely of plant products. And believe it or not, it actually sounds pretty damn tasty.

Diners at Soul Burger will be able to choose from eight different, animal-free burgers. The Sumo, for example, consists of a plant-based spicy sausage along with field mushrooms, vegan cheese, roasted pepper, lettuce, tomato, herbed mayo and relish. In addition to the burgers, customers can grab fries in regular or sweet potato varieties, shakes made with coconut-based icecream, as well as a selection of beers and organic soft drinks.

Soulburger Vegan Menu-04

While ditching meat may seem like a rather radical step for a burger joint, this isn't the first time Soul Burger has dabbled in animal-free dining. Owner Amit Tewari started the restaurant based on the concept of flexitarian eating, only ever using ethically sourced animal products and encouraging customers to try meatless options by offering discounted vegetarian burgers. He also gave vegans the chance to 'veganise' non-vegan items on the menu.

Whether Tewari's meatless burgers will win over card-carrying carnivores remains to be seen. Still, it's hard to ignore the growing vegan trend in Sydney – in addition to Soul Burger and Gigi, Newtown recently welcomed its first ever vegan fish and chip shop, the wonderfully named Bliss and Chips.

Soul Burger is located at 49 Perouse Road, Randwick. For more information, visit their website and Facebook page.

    YESSSSSS!!!! :) Cant wait to try all the vegan options!!! This is sooo exciting! It's really hard to get a good vegan burger in Sydney! Some of the vegetarian options even still have dairy-based sauce and patties are cooked on the same grill as the meat burgers. Thank you for finally acknowledging the Vegan in Sydney. There are more of us than you think. Hopefully you guys can start up in Newtown or Inner West where there is a huuuuge vegan community. People often ask me why I am a vegan . My simple response is I am a animal lover, I believe that all sentient beings have the right to be happy & FREE. Eating meat for me has been a healthy option and lifestyle and I also try to make the least amount of harm to animals and the environment. For those of you whoa re curious...watch 'Earthlings'. It will change your perception, open up your consciousness and life. Peace & light.
