What is it?
The Vurger Co. will be serving up a vegetarian friendly burger that even a carnivore will crave, at a one day event to celebrate National Vegetarian Week.
On Friday 19th May, Londoners can stop by Bishops Square, Spitalfields Market and sink their teeth into a new culinary creation with the debut of ‘The Auburger’.
The versatile fruit appears in cuisines around the world; from aubergine parmigiana and ratatouille, to babaganoush and baingan ka bharta. Now Londoners can try it in a new form, as a burger. Those who fancy trying the Auburger can expect smoky BBQ flavours and surprisingly meaty textures, which is down to its recipe of aubergine, onion and chickpea mixed with TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce, topped off with smoked cheese in a brioche bun.
The burger has been masterminded by The Vurger Co. founders Rachel Hugh and Neil Potts, and the duo will be on hand to serve up single or double stacked Auburgers, which will cost £7 and £9 respectively. The duo are aiming to take the veggie burger out of the specialty aisle and into mainstream cooking.
The Auburger will be on sale in Bishops Square, Spitalfields from 12pm to 3pm on the day (while stocks last of course).
