High quality fastfood at affordable prices

"Astrid och Aporna" (Astrid and the Monkeys)is a health store in Sweden, specializing in vegan goodies, such as "cheese", soy hotdogs, patties, etc. As of recent, they've been expanding their franchise, the latest expansion being this burger joint in Jægersborggade.
The place is located in a half basement, and most seating is outside on benches, whereas tall chairs and counters is what the inside has to offer. The deco style can only be described as simplistic - the focus is on the food here.
There's currently 3 different types of food to chose from: hotdog, burger and wrap - either with salads on the side, if you'd like that (those are 20 dkk). The hotdogs are the cheapest, around 30 dkk, whereas burgers are 69 dkk - melted veg. cheese inclusive.
I had the burger. Good choice. Everything was homemade, and one of the staff told me everything is organic. Veg spicy pattie, mayo, tomato salsa, salads. It tasted delicious, and is so far one of the best vegan burgers i've ever bought from a regular store. I'm a tall guy, so i didn't get full (i never do), but i know most of you would be very satisfied with the amount.
The hotdogs (which was served many times) looked and smelled delicious, filled to the limit with all kinds of toppings.
The staff told me the menu will vary from time to time. As long as they keep this standard, i'm definately one of their new regulars.
Only big minus is the seating (which is going to be a problem during winter for sure) and the physical surroundings. It could use some color and a less polished look.
Very high quality, Fair prices, Friendly staff
Only fastfood, Polished interior design, Lack of good seating
