Vegan Burger



Vegan Burgers

Who doesn’t love a good fashioned old vegan burger? The entire team at Caavakushi most certainly do. If you’re anything like us and enjoy a burger with a vegan patty or two your in the right place. In this article we breakdown and review the 15 best vegan burger restaurants in Los Angeles. Warning, we can’t guarantee that this article won’t make you salivate.

Junk Food

We all love food that tastes great. But sometimes it isn’t the best option for us. Most of us know in the back of my minds that eating delicious junk food isn’t going to do our bodies any good. So why do we do it? We believe it’s because our bodies are hardwired to seek out pleasure. So eating something that tastes delicious is an instant form of gratification for us. We are driven by our desires and sometimes we just can’t help ourselves. Or can we?

Health Problems

Eating too many burgers maybe great for your taste buds but have you ever sat down and thought about what it’s doing to your body? Well it’s not doing your body any favours. In fact it’s doing the opposite of that. It’s silently destroying your body. The 3 most common health conditions caused by eating an unhealthy diet are obesity, heart disease and cancer.

Health Tools & Medication


It doesn’t take long to go from overweight to obese if you’re living an unhealthy lifestyle. It may feel as though it’s creeped up on you, but it hasn’t. The main cause of obesity is an unhealthy lifestyle. Which boils down to diet and exercise. If you’re not incorporating exercise into your daily routine next time you get on the scales, you might be in for a shock. But exercise isn’t the most important factor to consider in weight loss. Our eating habits have a greater impact on our bodies. Some people resort to fad diets and eating disorders to keep their weight down. Others swear by portion control. If you’re trying to lose weight or keep the weight off, think about the health implications of your eating habits. Don’t damage your body while you lose weight. Eating a healthy balanced diet should be an important part of your journey.



Heart Disease

Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the USA? It’s more common for men to suffer from heart disease than women. Are you surprised? There are many factors that can contribute to a person having heart disease. The most common factors are family history, smoking, excessive alcohol, being overweight, lack of exercise and a poor diet. You could develop coronary artery disease from a build-up of fatty plaque in your arteries known as atherosclerosis. This fatty plaque build-up is created by unhealthy foods that can clog up your arteries. Foods such as red meat, French fries and burgers are just a few foods that can cause heart disease.


Yes we’re aware that no one wants to here the big bad C word. You know someone who has been affected by cancer. It’s an uncomfortable topic but it’s definitely one that we need to discuss. Because of poor food choices some people’s diets have propelled their health into decline. Studies have shown a high correlation between cancer and meat consumption. There is also research which supports that diets high in dairy lead to ovarian and other types of cancer.

Healthy Burgers

The good news is that not all burgers are bad for you. In fact certain burgers won’t even cause you to develop any health issues. Did you even think that could be possible? Well luckily for all of us it is. Meat free burgers are 10 times more healthier than a burger made of animal meat. Although removing the dairy from a burger and switching it out with a dairy-free option also makes a remarkable difference. Vegan cheese and vegan patties could potentially save your life.

America’s Burger Trends

Burgers have been a staple part of the American diet for decades. Everyone loves a  burger. Beef burgers and hamburgers have always been a popular part of the American diet. But a new trend is gaining some momentum. Meat free burgers. Vegetarian and vegan burgers are now becoming increasingly popular. With people becoming more educated about food choices the demand for the healthier burgers is slowly rising. Do you think this is just a new short-lived trend in the burger world or is it the start of a new vegan age?

There are so many burger hotspots around Los Angeles but not all of them serve vegan options. So the Caavakushi team in LA decided to investigate for you. We wanted share the places we visited and give you our honest recommendations and thoughts. Below we have 15 vegan burger restaurants that made it onto our list.

15. Astro Burger

Astro Burger is on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. This establishment has been around for 50 years. Have you heard of Astro Burger? This restaurant doesn’t have much of a color scheme in mind. The team said the food and furnishings give of strong diner vibes. This won’t be the the swankiest restaurant you will ever dine at but they’re vegan food sure tastes good. Although they’re not exclusively vegan, they’ve been serving plant-based burgers for 30 years now. Did you know that they’ve been serving vegan burgers for over 30 years? Their Garden Burger is soy-tastic. It’s filled with soy. A vegan soy patty, vegan soy mayonnaise and soy cheese. That is a lot of soy protein! Be careful to specify that you would like all vegan options, as the vegetarian and vegan menu you seems a bit confusing.

14. Plant-It Burger

It’s located on spring Street in downtown Los Angeles. Heard of it? All their burgers are plant-based. The color black is used heavily in the Plant-It-Burger premises. The team said that the Ground Earth Burger was definitely their favorite. It features impossible chilli, caramelised onions, vegan ranch and cheese sauce. Each burger is also fully customizable.

13. Gegen

You can find this hot spot on sunset boulevard in LA. It’s one of a few vegan burger restaurants in Los Angeles that’s 100% plant-based. The outside of Gegen reminded the Caavakushi team of a Subway sandwich shop. They think it’s because of the excessive signage in the windows. Inside has an interesting brick wall with a patch of greenery, pink roses, and a neon sign in the middle. The team felt they understood what they were going for, but it was poorly executed. The King, Queen and Mad Rooster burgers left a great impression. The King and Queen burgers are the same. The Queen burger has a single beyond Patty and the King has a double. Have you tried the Gegen burgers? The burgers secret ingredient is the house sauce. The Mad Rooster was the winner for the team with its house breaded gardein chick’n patty.

12. Burger Lounge

The Burger Lounge has multiple vegan burger restaurants in Los Angeles. Heard of it? The team visited the Beverly Hills location. They serve meat and plant-based burgers. Green, orange, and black are the brand colors featured in the restaurant. The style is reminiscent of McDonald’s. Our team enjoyed the Flora Lounger and BL Ancient Grain Burgers. The Flora Lounge Burger has an Impossible Burger patty, BL 1000 island sauce, vegan cheddar, pickles, lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. If your looking for a classic burger with all the usual trimmings the Floral Lounge Burger is for you. The BL Ancient Grain Burger has the same ingredients as the Flora Lounge Burger. the only difference is it has a BL vegan patty. Both burgers do taste different, but it would have been nice if the Burger Lounge would have put a bit more effort into sourcing different ingredients for each burger.
