Victoria is getting a new spot for vegan burgers

A casual drive-thru window selling burgers, fries and shakes—all 100% plant-based

There is arguably no better place to be vegan than in Victoria.

Voted Canada’s top destination for plant-based restaurants earlier this year, the city is packed with colourful and diverse options for those seeking a greener diet. Virtuous Pie has become a staple for takeout pizzas, while bakeries like Fern Cafe are famous for their decadent selection of cakes and pastries—all made without the need for eggs and dairy.

That being said, we couldn’t be more excited to see that Victoria is adding yet another vegan spot to its arsenal. This time, it comes in the form of a 24-hour drive-thru window selling burgers, fries and shakes.

Odd Burger, a popular vegan fast food chain across Canada, is finally expanding to the province, opening two locations in Vancouver and Victoria this year. Construction is already underway, the company posting a picture of their highly anticipated location at 790 Fisgard St.

“We can’t wait to serve you Victoria!” the company wrote on their Iatest Instagram post.

You wouldn’t be able to tell that Odd burgers are vegan at first glance. Pictures on their website look nearly identical to those of traditional fast food chains, with some items even adopting familiar names such as the “Vopper” and “Buffalo ChickUn” sandwich.

Though they’re known best for their burgers, Odd Burger offers a lot of different menu items often found at classic diners and fast food destinations. Breakfast sandwiches range from a ham maple crunch to a “faconator” (yes, they do breakfast) and on top of burgers, wraps, and fries, they also have a decadent list of milkshakes and desserts like hot fudge sundaes and whoopie pies.

With a mission to disrupt the fast-food industry by offering food made from scratch using plant-based, minimally processed and sustainable ingredients, Odd Burger showcases the possibilities of what plant-based eating can be. By using advanced technology and large scale plant-based food manufacturing facilities, they aim to reshape our food future by delivering the most classic and casual meal—the drive-thru burger—to one that can survive independently from animal products.

We can’t wait to see what the future of fast food looks like.
