Mooshies – Brick Lane, E1

Hey Gurls!

I am addressing you as girls as in my mind my audience will be pretty much women in their 20-35. Yeah, I am pretending to have organic followers that are interested in the shit I am writing! But you know what they say?! Fake it until you make it!

Today I want to tell you a story about a nice and cute gal called Barbara (aka Moi) that fell in love with a fit and hot AF vegan guy. The first time they met, they randomly bumped into each other in a trendy vegan place that sells expensive burger and spicy nachos and by the time they got they orders to their table, they knew Love knocked at their door…

Just kidding, my love life is shit as always. Thank Goodness the only real thing about this story was the burger place! I have been there different times with work colleagues, family and friends… and I am thinking, next time I go I should ask for a discount! You know, I always feel like a better person when I support local vegan businesses!

Mooshies is a small shop in the heart of Brick Lane that sells mind-blowing and highly addictive vegan burgers.

Their Magic mushroom burger is filled with a huge Oyster mushroom, breaded and fried with two hash browns on top. The bread of the bun is toasted to perfection and the mushroom is crispy AF. All the different ingredients and textures are well combined. The only downside are sweet potato fries, a bit too mushy. 

The Fillet-on-Phish burger with panko fried eggplant, nori seaweed, and mayo is literally a foodgasm! The fried eggplants are just divine and satisfying, and the seaweed gives the “fish” taste everyone is looking for. Their fried mozzarella sticks are awesome, the vegan cheese is so stringy and hot that will melt in your hands; the dip made with mayo and Sriracha is just sick!  

Pig-out tip: add the dip into the burger and your taste buds will be thankful for that!  

The quinoa and bean burger unfortunately is slightly disappointing: the taste is ok, but not even close to the other ones. The patty crumbles at each bite, as if a binding ingredient is missing. And the nachos definitely lack in guacamole. 

The shop has an urban style, with graffiti on the walls and wooden tables, quite bare and unpretentious, but hey, it’s Brick Lane. The cost of a burger is about £8-9, pretty expensive, but totally worthy.
