I love to indulge in some vegan junk food. Just because I eat plant based doesn’t mean that I eat salad all the time. Thank goodness I live in Cape Town because that is where Lekker Vegan is located.
gourmet vegan junk food
Lekker Vegan is the perfect vegan restaurant if you want some amazing vegan junk food. They have a great selection of vegan burgers, wraps, toasties, snacks, desserts and even have vegan soft serve.
What I also love about them is that their prices are really good. Often vegan options are crazy expensive but at Lekker Vegan you can buy a yummy vegan meal that won’t break the bank. Since they have opened I have tried quite a few of the items on their menu. I really enjoy their food so I will definitely be back to try the rest..
Vegan Gourmet Junk Food. Burgers, chips, gatsby’s, snacks & soft serve. Just better and cruelty-free.
Lekker Crispy Burger
This is the Lekker Crispy Burger which is the first item I tried on their menu shortly after they opened at the end of last year. It is loaded with a crispy fried patty, vegan melted cheddar, fried onion rings, lettuce, tomato, lekker OG sauce, sour cream & onion crisps. It is seriously delicious. You have to try it!! You have the option to make it naked (bunless salad version), add avo or double the patty. The burger on it’s own is very filling so the fact that it doesn’t come with chips is actually a good thing, but if you want some you have to remember to order that separately. They have crispy potato chips and crispy sweet potato chips on their menu under the snacks section. They are also amazing and come with a delicious sauce.
Lekker beefy gatsby – half portion
Of course I would try the half lekker beefy gatsby! It’s a vegan gatsby loaded with smokey vegan beef strips, crispy chips, vegan cheddar cheeze, lekker spicy sauce, lekker lettuce & tomato, red onion and jalapenos in a crispy bun. Little did i know that the half was so big that i had to use 2 hands to get a grip. I tried my best but only managed to eat half of the half! You could easily share it with someone. It’s a lot of bang for your buck and tastes so good! You have to try it!
Lekker Chick’n Bunini
I have ordered this one quite a few times. The Lekker Chick’n Bunini is filled with vegan chicken pieces, lekker mayo, spring onion & sesami seeds. They mayo that they used gives it a subtle creamy flavour.
Lekker Spicy Burger
If you like spicy meals then this one is for you! This is the Lekker Spicy Burger, which consists of a crispy fried patty, fresh jalapenos, asian pickled cucumber, lettuce, tomato, a lekker spicy sauce and sweet chilly crisps. It really is very good.
Lekker Satay Wrappy
I recently tried this one for the first time. The Lekker Satay Wrappy is a filled with tasti taters, lekker satay sauce, lettuce, tomato, lekker spicy sauce and spring onion. It is a great quick meal if you, like me, often forget to take food to work.
Apple crumble pie
Oh my! A mini vegan apple crumble pie! Need i say more. Let me just say that it is amazing and I have had it a few times!
