Frankie and Benny’s The Vegan Beet Burger

We’re back with another review, this time of the new vegan burger on the menu at Frankie and Benny’s. Priced at £9.99, it’s a pleasant addition to the menu – it’s always great to see big chains adding those vegan options, and we especially appreciate the fact that it’s not just a field mushroom.

It’s served in a really nice bun, a glazed brioche which adds a bit of a luxury touch. So far, so good! 

There is so much filling that it’s actually too big to eat in one mouthful, as the burger and other elements simply squidge out the back when you try. I don’t like being defeated by a burger, but sometimes you just have to knife and fork it – and I would suggest that this is one of those times.

There’s lots of fresh salad in the bun which always adds that extra feeling of satisfaction, though of course it’s the burger itself we’re most interested in. This has a solid texture, and is very fibrous. There are lentils visible in the burger mixture, which overall is quite sweet. This might be a little strange except that it’s less noticeable when paired with the bun.

Inside the bun are a few smaller sliced gherkins as well as a big slice of tomato (you know how we feel about those here at VegBurge – we like to throw them straight out!). The burger was a tiny bit dry and could perhaps do with some added spice or diced onion. Overall, however, it was really tasty.

The ice cream sundae, I should note, is not vegan, however tasty it might be!

On the Vegburge scale, I give this…

Taste – 8/10

Price – 5/10

Rest of experience – 7/10
