Top5-Veggie-Burgers-In-Melbourne

Who doesn’t love a good burger. And just because we’re veggie doesn’t mean that we wanna miss out of this burger hype. Well, it’s not really a hype is it, it’s always there. Burgers never go out of fashion. Anyway. We’ve eaten our way through a whole lot of burgers and this city and today we’re sharing our top 5 veggie burgers around town. Be prepped for some delicious tips that just might make you more than a little bit hungry.

ParlourDiner-Veggie-Burger

Parlour Diner   

Yes, you’ll have to wait for your food (specifically if you head on over here on a weekend night) and yes, it is totally worth it. This homely american style Windsor diner offers some juicy burgers. The veggie option, called the Earth Burger, comes with halloumi, a chargrilled portobello mushroom, tomatoes and lettuce, splashed with tasty sauce and slipped in the middle of a perfectly soft brioche bun. It’s really apparent that this is no burger they’ve just slapped together to have a veggie option, there’s actually thought put into it.

Beatbox Kitchen

We <3 anything from a food truck, because food on wheels is somehow more quirky and great than food, well, without wheels. Beatbox Kitchen has one veggie option, a portobello burger, which would surely make this list even if it was served at a stationary location. Soft yet chewy and so frigging delicious that I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

Lord-of-the-fries-Burger

Lord of the Fries

Yes. This picture might look a bit gritty, but this is what happens when you send your husband on a food run in the middle of party preps. It’s messy, but you know what? It doesn’t matter because it’s utterly delicious. Lord of the Fries manages to give me that greasy fast food fix veggie style. And if you didn’t know it was vegetarian, you’d never even think twice of it being meat. And as a meat-loving vegetarian – you can’t do better than that. I especially love the fact that all their burgers are vegetarian. It’s one of the few places where us veggies actually can pick and choose based on what kind of burger we want.

ZombieBurger

Zombie Burger

Parmesan-crusted pan-fried eggplant stack with melted provolone cheese, fresh basil, ZB roasted capsicum salsa and crisp iceberg lettuce on a toasted brioche bun. This is one tasty veggie burger we’ll tell you that. If you ask Sandra she’ll excitedly yell ‘Best burger in town’ with accompanying crazy eyes. And that’s saying something. Don’t forget to order some Zombie Fritts as well, which is crispy battered cauliflower florets. Omnomnomnom!

Honourable mentions
When creating this list we came across more great burger places. They’re all delicious, but they didn’t quite make this list. We’re not ones to keep good food out in the cold, so to speak, so we just want to add a few honourable mentions.

Huxtaburger makes a mean tofu burger. Sure, it might be a bit too soft and silky for most people, but for me it’s the perfect light lunch option. Yum!

Y’all knows Grill’d, right? Sure it’s a chain, but they make it feel homely and healthy. Their burgers are big and bloody good. But you know what? The fries, they’re heavenly. Like really.

1000 £ Bend has a saganaki burger that’s good. Cheese is always a great way to fill up your meal, and this one does it nicely.

Do you have any favourite place that serves a mean veggie burger that’s not on this list? Please leave a comment, as we’re hungry and want to expand our veggie burger horizons!
