Flower Burger – Vegan Burger Review

Flower Burger can be found on Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia – a lovely street dotted with many fabulous restaurants and cute spots for coffee. Flower Burger is an all-vegan burger joint with European locations in The Netherlands, France and Italy – the Charlotte Street location is their only UK site!

I visited on a Saturday lunchtime and was greeted warmly by the staff. The interior has a 70’s flower power vibe, and downstairs there are unusual seating areas; think multicoloured swings for seats with psychedelic graphics and bespoke lighting. Diners order at the counter, and then your food is brought over to your table.

The menu is 100% vegan – and the burgers aren’t trying to be ‘meaty’, which is something a lot of vegan burger restaurants are trying to achieve. The colourful buns are all dyed with natural ingredients! The yellow burger bun colour is achieved using Turmeric, the black burger bun colour comes from Vegetable Charcoal, and the violet tones of the Cherrybomb’s burger bun comes from Beetroot extract. The Flower Burger team are always looking for new natural colourants and ingredients where possible.

I ordered two burgers to try – the Jungle Burger and the Cherrybomb. The Cherrybomb is a Lentil, and Basmati Rice patty with Rocktail Sauce, Tomato Confit, Lettuce, Flower Cheddar, and Soybean Sprouts all sandwiched in a pink bun. It was rather sweet, which I wasn’t expecting, but it was certainly enjoyable.

The Jungle Burger was a firm favourite for me. This burger was very savoury, and the patty had quite a meaty texture (even though it’s made entirely from veggies).The Jungle Burger is an Oat and Red Bean patty with Wild Sauce, crunchy Onion, Oven-Baked Aubergines, Flower Cheddar, Tomatoes and Lettuce all in a green bun. I’d recommend this one!

For the month of January, there is also a special on the menu called The Earth Burger  – get down to Flower Burger to try this out before Veganuary is over! In a green bun with Red Sesame Seeds is a Barley and Seitan BBQ patty with Teriyaki Ginger Mayo Sauce, a Mustardy Sauce, Lettuce, Tomatoes and Breaded Aubergine.

There are three side dishes available on the menu – two variations of wedges and edamame beans. In terms of desserts, diners can try a vegan take on Tiramisu (Tirimisun), and other treats include Chocolate Salami and a Melting Chocolate Dessert (all vegan, of course). Alcoholic drinks are also available from the fridge if you fancy a drink with your burger.

The staff were friendly, and the restaurant was spotlessly clean, which I always look out for, especially in the midst of the pandemic. Flower Burger is a great vegan spot – I’ve never tried burgers like this before, so I would recommend checking out Flower Burger for vegans and veggies (and maybe even an adventurous meat-eater). Available for eat-in / takeaway and also delivery on Deliveroo and UberEats.
