Best Veggie Burger in Galway

A call out to all Galway vegetarians, we’re here to tell you the best places to get your hands on a great veggie burger!

A burger is everything - it’s a scrumptious dinner choice, an ideal accompaniment to a few bevs or, on the flip, the perfect cure. For us vegetarians, oftentimes it’s hard to find that juicy, full to the brim, can barely get in for a bite, burger that hits the same as a beef patty. Lucky for you, that’s exactly what we’ve got in store for you here…

Handsome Burger

Named by many as the best burger in town, Handsome Burger offers both veggie and vegan options that are jam packed with all the goodness of your usual faves. Choose from the ‘Bad n’ Bhaji’, a delicious tandoori bhaji on top of a brioche bun with feta, chutney and onions finished off with cucumber and mint raita. Or go for the vegan option, ‘The Beyond Burger’, a beyond patty (which is so beefy, it's crazy), handsome sauce, pickled cucumber, sticky onion and topped with a vegan bun - delicious.
