Best vegan burger in Taipei

4
Posted on 04 / 13 / 2015

This one’s a little more out of the way than other vegan places, but it’s close to iVegan so you can pick up some groceries afterwards. About Animals is my no.1 burger place of Taipei. Actually, their wasabi burger is so good, I’ve never ordered anything else when I’ve been there… it will satisfy vegans and omnis alike, just make sure you order a side with it if you’re a big eater.

They serve burgers, hotpots, rice dishes, and various deserts. They also have beer in the fridge, and animal rights/gay rights/everything rights postcards and labels on the walls. They have good music and a good atmosphere to chill out with friends and enjoy a burger.

One complaint: recently they seem to be undecided about whether they serve fries with their burgers. Without them you'll definitely be left unsatisfied, as the portions aren't large! Serve fries again please.

Pros: Excellent food, Laid back atmosphere, Eco-conscious
Cons: Small portions

Fantastic place! Try the wasabi burger, one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had! Cool, cosy atmosphere - loved this place.

Cosy place for vegan comfort food!

Great vegan addition to Taipei that offers up good vegan burgers/ fries and vege patties with the bonus of being one of the only vegan places that sells alcohol. Unpretentious and laid back atmosphere where one could easily spend an afternoon relaxing. Only downside is limited seating and lack of salad or more healthy options... But when you want a good burger and comfortable place to relax this is were to go! Conveniently located near MRT and IVegan supermarket as well.

Pros: part of proceeds go to animal welfare groups, sells alcohol, LGBT supportive
Cons: menu is primarily comfort food, doesn't include sa

Fantastic Addition to Taipei!

This place is really cute and the food is delicious. I ordered the Wasabi Burger, and hadn't realized how much I missed eating a Western-style veggie burger until the moment I bit into it. So good! The fries were a great treat too! I'm looking forward to going back and trying the Kimchi Burger, as I'm curious to see if it's spicier than the Wasabi Burger, which wasn't as spicy as I expected (but was still delicious).

Just a note, there is limited seating here, so don't be surprised if you show up and don't get a table. Still, there's a nice porch area which looked fun for hanging around outside, drinking a beer, and eating vegan food.

It is a bit hard to find About Animals. Here is my best description (sorry if you get lost). When you come out of WanLong MRT, exit 2, you have to choose either to turn left or right after coming up the escalator. Turn left, walking down the more narrow exit and walk past the 7-Eleven. Once you get to the street, turn right. At the first intersection, turn left and walk down the street until you see a sign for Jinglong Street Lane 1 on your right. Turn down Jinlong Street and About Animals will be a short way down on the right hand side.

Pros: Delicious Food, Great Atmosphere
Cons: Limited Seating

Sign Of The Times

Dropped in this little hangout with some friends as it is conveniently located just nearby the vegan supermarket.
It's a cool little place which is a local focus spot for animal rights advocates and lesbian and gay issues. The gal serving us was very sweet and accommodating.
I tried the wasabi burger which came with fries and a little fruit. I'm not a big wasabi fan, but liked the flavor of this burger, only mild spicy. It kinda fell apart on me though so they could work on the recipe a bit. Would love to come by again when they have an event and meet some locals. It's really a sign of the times that Taipei has places like this... leading the way.

Pros: Interesting Burgers, Cool Hang

We went to About Animals in the first week that it opened, it had a great range of beverages and in Taiwan it is hard to find good vegan (or veg) food with alcohol also served. The service was awesome, very friendly and open to suggestions and the food was great. The desserts from Vegan Heaven were amazing and sold out too quickly. I would highly recommend a visit and I can't wait to bring my family.

Pros: Great food, Great service, Beverages!
Cons: A little hard to find, Not open for lunch
