Recently Julia started blogging for Weekends in Rotterdam about fun hotspots, art, vintage shopping and good parties in Rotterdam.
For her first article she went to the press event of Flower Burger, a new hotspot in Rotterdam where you can get colourful vegan burgers.
Read Julia’s first review below.
Be sure to check out more vegan restaurants in Rotterdam!
Last Friday the very first Flower Burger opened in the Netherlands and of course Marije and I went for a bite. The concept is simple: colourful, vegan burgers in fast food style – but definitely don’t confuse it with junkfood.
The name Flower Burger comes from Flowerpower and that definitely pops out in the restaurant: colour everywhere!! The chairs, the ceiling and even the food is coloured, such as the iconic pink burger. In addition to the restaurants in Milan, Rome and other Italian cities, this is the first location in the Netherlands. The owner chose Rotterdam because he can identify with the people and the atmosphere here. And let’s be honest: which city is better for a trendy vegan kitchen than Rotterdam!
The colourful burgers at Flower Burger
Next to the cheerful yet simple interior, the food is also a great reason to visit this shop. You can choose from six burgers: Classic Chicken, Spicy Chickpea, Cheesy Chickpea, Cherry Bomb, Flower Burger and Tofungo. You also have a number of side dishes such as delicious Patatas Bravas. All burgers have a different basis such as chickpeas or beans in combination with a delicious homemade sauce and are all served in a bun in festive tones. I just quickly want to go back to the sauces, which in my opinion steal the whole show and even better is that they are all vegan, and yes, even the mayo. My personal favorite was the Flower Burger who tasted the most unique with a patty of beans and seitan with a magik sauce, flower-cheddar cheese and soya beans.
A quick vegan snack
The price-quality ratio is also excellent; they are not the most exclusive vegan burgers you’ll ever eat, but for less than ten euros you have a tasty, 100% vegan and instagram proof burger.
Flower Burger is a real fast food restaurant, don’t expect a restaurant where you’ll spent a lot of time but a place where you can quickly get a good-looking meal without feeling guilty afterwards. Definitely recommended for busy bees among us who still want to score a tasty dinner.
Tip: on Mondays you get 15% off, get yourself a bite!
