V Burger Bar, East Victoria ParkOctober 30th, 2012 8 comments
The fact that it was almost 2pm on a Friday and the place was packed should have been the giveaway.
As I jostled my way to the counter to peruse the menu and place my order, the wait staff were friendly and attentive. With enthusiasm they called the Chef in to consult on vegan choices.
My prize was the Med-Veg Burger (minus fetta, aoili & pesto) – thick, grilled slices of eggplant, zucchini and red pepper topped with red onion, tomato sauce and fresh spinach on a gluten-free bun ($12). I caved at the last minute and ordered the chips too ($3.80). It seemed crazy not to.
With a stroke of luck and a grin I successfully nabbed a table as two patrons departed. I settled in to enjoy the cafe’s cozy vibe whilst flipping through magazines from the nearby rack. In no time at all my order arrived fresh, hot and thoroughly delicious and I relished every morsel as I watched groups of friends come and go and a seemingly never-ending stream of visitors arrive at the door.
With gusto I polished off my meal only to glance up and spot a couple who obviously had designs on my table. I sighed. As satisfied as I was with such a tasty feast, I didn’t want it to end.
With bittersweet sorrow, I gathered up my belongings and vacated…
These are burgers, my friends, but not as you know them. V Burgers. Go forth and enjoy. xx

Bex is an incredible beauty, who is probably the cutest person I’ve ever met. She radiates positivity so much that she glows, or dare I say, sparkles. I am even more obsessed with Bex and her blog now.KristyKeepin It Kind

Rebecca posts awesome recipes and witty repartee, she is a brilliant photographer as well.
I love this blog for the density of information Rebecca delivers in a witty, fun way. Her blog’s title intrigued me and the content didn’t disappoint. It’s also chock full of great links that have been extremely helpful.
I love this blog not only for her awesome recipes, but also as a testament to how cool it is to commune with someone a half a world away (she’s in Australia, I’m in Colorado, USA).
I love Rebecca’s site. She looks so beautiful and her posts are so down-to-earth and fun. Vegan Sparkles is just an all-round cool site!MadisonVeggieful
Ms. Sparkles is an adorable Australian… We made the Cashew Cream of Mushroom soup and the Moroccan Sweet Potato Chickpea soup. Both were incredible! Vegan or no, you must try them!CatherineThe Catherine Blog
A cheerful vegan blog with great recipes and photos I would like to eat!
Vegan Sparkles makes me want to go Perth! She has probably won The Sunshine Award a dozen times but she’s just too adorable to leave out of this list.LindsayLindsay is Vegan
