Vegan burger

anyone know if there's somewhere close to Basel where you can try this burger?

or should I call it a vegan disc?

Re: Vegan burger

When I order a burger, or a steak I expect to get meat. When I order caviar I donít want dog-fish eggs.

Donít try and deceive me, be honest

That's the one thing that really puzzles me about vegetarians or vegans: They put so much energy and phantasy into producing copies of hamburger, Schnitzel what ever.

If I don't want to eat meat, I don't want to be reminded of the look of it - or worse the taste either, do I?!
So why can't a vegan just eat a veggie-burger?

It would probably be more healthy to leave the bun out and eat the meat though

Re: Vegan burger

You can try the Beyond Meat Burger at the Helvti diner (of course in ZŁrich, the most trendsetting city of Switzerland )

I am puzzled that it puzzles so many non vegetarians.

Those vegetarians I know are vegetarians because of ethical reasons, not because they do not like the looks or taste of a steak. Maybe they even miss it or are in some way used to the looks/name of it and are happy they have a similiar replacement.

Re: Vegan burger

I really need to take a dip-stick to my Dyslexia and check the damned thing.
I read: "Vegan burgler!"
How do you know the vegan burgler has been in your home? The BiomŁll had been emptied and there is not a carrot in the house.

Re: Vegan burger

There's a big sign outside the Volkshaus Basel brasserie (near the Rebgasse parking) that they have Beyond Burgers...

No I don't know anything more than that, no not affiliated to the restaurant, just like looking out of bus windows.

Re: Vegan burger

It's capitalism at it's ultimate best.
Selling cheap vegi burgers for the price of a real one.


If I really wanted goat feed I would go to the Landi for lunch.
