The Vegan Mac Daddy burger is the stuff of your filthiest food fantasies

Moving Mountains has announced that its raw vegan ‘bleeding’ burger is being rolled out to new restaurants.

took two years to develop, and , to mixed reviews.

Metro went to taste it, and we were a bit underwhelmed by how bland the burger was – it really needed something more than a bit of salad and eggless mayo to sex it up a bit.

Up until now, the burger was only available at vegetarian restaurant Mildreds, but it’s now being launched in five new locations – with an exciting twist.

American comfort food restaurant and cocktail bar Dirty Bones has added the burger to its menu, in a plant-based twist of its signature dish, The Mac Daddy burger.

The original contains a double brisket and dry aged steak burger, topped with pulled beef short rib, mac and cheese, and espresso-spiked BBQ sauce on seeded brioche.

Its cruelty-free counterpart consists of the Moving Mountains B12 patty topped with vegan mac and cashew ‘cheese’, smoky mushroom ‘short rib’ and espresso-spiked BBQ sauce on a soft bun.

Okay Moving Mountains, you win this time.

The Vegan Mac Daddy will cost you £12.

It’s available from Friday 1 June at ’ Oxford branch and its four London locations – Kensington, Carnaby, Shoreditch and Soho.

You can get the burger half price on launch day only, making it a very reasonable £6.


This will be the first time that the burger is available at a non-veggie location, so throw your hands in the air for being able to eat well with your omni pals.

Dirty Bones is also throwing some pretty epic sounding vegan pop-up dinner sessions at their Shoreditch branch, where you can enjoy a three course dinner and get your digestive juices to dissolve such delights as cauliflower ‘chicken’ and buckwheat waffles, cashew and almond milk mac and ‘cheese’, and a vegan twist on their buffalo hot wings.

The next sessions are on 29 May and 5 June – find out more .
