On 10th March, an exclusive vegan katsu burger is coming to London for one month only. Top plant-based burger restaurant Halo Burger has collaborated with MasterChef winner and Vegan Japaneasy author, Tim Anderson to create a burger that captures the satisfying crunch and rich umami tang of a classic Katsu, all whilst being 100 per cent plant-based.
The Vegan Katsu Cheeseburger sees a juicy deep-fried 1/4lb Beyond Meat patty encased in super crispy panko breadcrumbs paired with a deep-fried smoked Gouda style cheese slice, umami mayo, Tonkatsu sauce and shredded cabbage. Paying homage to a timeless favourite, the Katsu Burger is inspired by Tim Anderson’s desire to increase accessibility to Japanese food coupled with his ‘halo moment’ when trying Halo burger at the POP Brixton branch.
Inspired by his new book Vegan JapanEasy: Classic & modern vegan Japanese recipes to cook at home (Hardie Grant, £22). Tim Anderson has ‘Japanified’ the classic Halo burger, using key Japanese flavours to create an authentic twist on tradition.
The burger will be available Sunday-Wednesday from Halo’s Shoreditch site and will embody classic Japanese soul food flavours combined with the iconic meaty Halo style. Exclusively available from the 10th March for one month only, head down to Halo Burger and get a taste of the UK’s first plant-based Katsu Burger.
