Veggie Velo....get on your bike!

One sunny weekday I went out to lunch with my fellow workmates and on Hindmarsh Square was officially in food-truck heaven!  Burgers, tacos, popcorn, fresh juices….what more could I ask for?  Then, out of the corner of my eye, I see a little hot plate on top of a bike, and there it was – Veggie Velo!

Veggie Velo is literally run on the back of a bike and serves vegetarian burgers.  The overall concept of being eco-friendly ties in well with the health conscious concept that is trying to be promoted.   

There are three types of burgers available: 

1) Quinoa patty with lettuce, carrot, beetroot, alfalfa, onion jam, sweet potato and cashew spread (vegan friendly)
2) Haloumi burger with grilled mushrooms, lemon thyme and the same salads mentioned above
3) Combination 

Vegie Velo also serves salads and desserts. 

I opted for the combination burger.  Overall, I was a little disappointed.  The quinoa patty was a little dry and tasteless however the wholemeal bun was fresh and the haloumi and mushroom were delicious.  Salads were fresh and added a crisp textural element to the burger.  I would definitely go back for the haloumi and mushroom option.  

Overall, the cost is a little expensive, the combination burger was about $12 with the quinoa or haloumi options costing $10 (burger only).  To compare, Burger Theory charges about $13 for a burger, fries and a drink. 

For some, the concept of a 'healthy' burger may not bode well, however if you are looking for something healthy, I recommend the haloumi and mushroom burger (and lets be honest, haloumi is awesome!).

Due to the pricing, Mirko gives Veggie Velo 6/10 chops on the chopping board.
