As soon as the clock strikes twelve, a mouthwatering smell attracts vegans and curious eaters to this address well known of those who decided to ban meat from their diet. As soon as we walk in, we discover the team being busy to prepare the first orders before our eyes. Look up to see the very various menu that displays the best of American vegan street-food.
The menu changes every day and every day, the team offers three different burgers among its best recipes. You can especially taste the legendary East Side based on vegan bacon, red onions and a double portion of cheddar, the whole is served with a mustard and ketchup sauce. You can also try the delicious Mexicain (Mexican) with guacamole, cheddar, red onions and tomato. But the must-eat burger is the Provençal featuring an incredible mix of flavors thanks to its vegan aioli, mozzarella and its homemade almond red pesto. As a steak, you can have an organic and vegan patty made of cereals and tofu that the staff cooks with vegetables and spices. The result is to die for.
Vegans are likely to cringe when they see cheese names, but be reassured: all recipes can be modified. Should you say it, your burger can be served with vegan fake cheese instead of cheese of animal origin. There you are, you happy?
But East Side Burgers isn’t only about burgers. They also serve very delicious hot dogs based on vegan chorizo that you can topped with various ingredients such as cheddar, vegan cheddar and fried onions. And to accompany your meal, the most gourmet eaters will obviously go for the sides and they’re totally right! It’s hard to resist the call of vegan fritters or cheese nuggets!
Once you’ve ordered your meal, think about giving your name at the checkout. All you have to do is to have a seat upstairs while waiting for you name to be called in the speaker and then collect your tray. In the meantime, we have a look at the décor that makes us feel like we left Paris for Brooklyn. We like the friendly atmosphere cadenced by the noise from conversations. Until it’s time to eat.
As a dessert, the choice is all yours since East Side Burgers offers many revisited pastries so that they can be 100% vegan. Homemade, the sweet menu varies according to the day. Cheesecakes, cookies and cruelty-free tartlets are all yours!
