Royale Eatery has just added a NEW vegan burger to their menu called the Vegan Do It.
We love them for this!
It is a 160g patty made with brown lentils & spices, topped with chilli hummus, pickled red onions and fresh coriander leaves, sprinkled with sesame seeds for R82. HELL YES! I HAVE TO TRY THIS! Thank you, Royale!
Truth be told, this is not the first time I have been to Royale Eatery on Long Street to try their vegan burgers. It’s about the third time. Or fourth.
A group of us went to see an epic play at Alexander Bar Theatre and then trawled Long Street to get some post-theatre chow. There were a few options for a late night snackaroo, but this was by far my favourite. I promise to never say “snackaroo” again.
Royale is a restaurant. They serve burgers. Not just any burgers – burgers that make your soul tingle and your dreams come true. I stole that straight off their website. I am guilty of plagiarism and a lack of creativity #veganthief
My go-to HAS to be their Vegan Cheese Burger which is a 160g soya mince patty with melted vegan cheddar, caramelised onion and their homemade tomato relish all served on a vegan roll. All burgers come with a side, and I am DEMANDING you to make that side their sweet potato fries. The other options don’t even matter. Just trust me. Shhhh. Just trust. Shhh. Trust #thatwascreepy
The following burgers can be “converted” to be vegan. Think of it as a purifying ritual… wash away their omnivorous sins…
- Veg Royale
- Breakfast Veg
- Yentle Express
- Roasted Tofu & Veg Burger
The following burger needs to be publicly shamed as it is beyond ‘veganising’ and is a lost cause to humanity:
- Zelig – NOT vegan – avoid like the plague it is
The following burgers were sent from heaven and are vegan and virginal:
- Vegan Cheese Burger (R84)
- Georgia Brown (R77)
- and the NEW Vegan Do It (R82)
REMEMBER to ask for a whole wheat or vegan roll when ordering (just to make doubly sure)
A slice of vegan cheddar will set you back R20 AND…
Royale also makes a Choc-Peppermint Vegan Shake (that has avo as a base) R42 sml, R84 lrg
A lot of their wines are vegan-friendly too:
Red Blends – Alphabetical
Pinotage – Painted Wolf and Eikendal
Merlot – Bein “Little Merlot”
Shiraz – FRAM, Arendsig
Cabernet Sauvignon – De Meye “Little River”, BIG flower, Warwick ‘The First Lady’ and Nitida
Sparkling – Krone Borealis Brut and Ambeloui Brut
all of which retail from R35-40 for a glass and R100-230 per bottle.
Royale Eatery makes bloody good burgers. When last have you been to Long Street? Come on!
P.S. Rumour has it that Royale Eatery is flirting with the idea of making vegan pizzas too! #whattheevenheck #iknow
