FINALLY a burger from a burger chain that is actually vegan.
Ok here’s the details and below my thoughts:
Note – it’s sometimes called a ‘streamliner’ sometimes a ‘Boca burger’:
Veggie Burger (Soy Boca® Burger) ingredients:
Water, soy protein concentrate, wheat gluten, contains Less Than 2% of methylcellulose, salt, caramel colour, dried onions, yeast extract, sesame oil, hydrolysed wheat protein, natural and artificial flavour (non-meat), Disodium Guanylate, Disodium Inosinate. Allergens: Wheat, Soy, Sesame (note sesame is considered a major allergen only in Canada)
“Johnny Rockets currently uses soybean oil for its fried foods.”
The verdict – the burger is pretty bland but has some serious home comfort skills going on. The bun is vegan and they don’t put Mayo on the burger – but I ask for it without mustard, as, well…. Mustard is gross.
I do have it with fried mushrooms and the manager tells me that every Johnny Rockets has a separate area for vegan and veggie food to be cooked.
BEST OF ALL – the sweet potatoes fries and APPLE PIE are vegan (if you have it without cream or ice cream) a burger and dessert! Heaven!
Although there’s none in the UK yet, I’m pretty sure with enough emails we can get one in London at the least!
