oh god i love lord of the fries. coupled with a coconut water, it is the best hangover cure of all time.
we cycled down to the brunswick street store on new years day because we are pretty amazing at life. last year i opened the year by vomiting and crying and having lie downs on the pavement, so being able to not only keep food inside my body but also ride a bicycle was a real improvement.
actually getting food and being inside lord of the fries was pretty complicated. the staff and all the customers were really struggling with being alive which i fully understand. but eventually i got my vegan spicy burger which looks like this:
this picture, taken several weeks ago of another lord of the fries spicy burger, does NOT do the beautiful creature justice.
so, lord of the fries burgers! the vegetarian burgers are a fucking delight, really. the faux meat patty is a great texture and flavour and the sauces and fixings are just delicious. these burgers have tricked many a drunk fool into thinking they are eating a delicious cow. the vegan versions are not *quite* as delicious, because the mayo is not as amazing (it’s a bit vinegary, as vegan mayo tends to be) and the cheese is that yellow shit (i think it’s toffututi brand cheese slice? correct me if i’m wrong), which is a bit dissapointing because the vegan cheese they use on their fries is quite a lot better. BUT WHEVS, this spicy burger was delicious and life affirming. A++
rating: 4 out of a possible 5 vegan burgers (1 point lost due to service being provided by kids clearly in need of some coconut water and a lie down)
