Although I like my meat, good food is the priority. If that means no burgers, or lots of burgers; it is all about quality.
For this edition of Life of Shayan, I was recommended a Fried Vegan burger by the team from Temple of Sietan. At the time, the thought excited me and did not faze me. I mean, why should it, I have had veggie burgers before. The only difference this time, was that this was fully vegan.
What is Seitan? Well according to the Spruce it is:
"Although it is made from wheat, seitan has little in common with flour or bread. Also called “wheat meat”, "wheat protein", “wheat gluten” or simply “gluten”, seitan becomes surprisingly similar to the look and texture of meat when cooked, making it a popular meat substitute."
To be honest I didn't really care, what it was. I just wanted good food.
Previous Veggie burgers I have had before have been mixed. Sometimes I feel they try to overcompensate for the lack of meat and pack way too much in.
The best veggie burger I have had to date is Shake Shacks Shroom burger. A fried mushroom which has cheese in it. Oh Yes!
So let's get straight to the verdict and you can see how I feel with my video below. ENJOY
GOOD TIMES: It is Vegan, packed full of Protein and popular in trendy East London
WATCH OUT: Lacks real depth to the flavour. Needs a bit more to it
