Excellent burgers - Edit

Definitely exists! Bumped into this place by accident as I was heading somewhere with a friend and decided to go for a late lunch. There was a sign outside clearly pointing into the building, and they now have menus with an English translation on it, and our waitress spoke okay English and explained the menu. A large burger is two patties. Free water. Say if you're vegan. I'll definitely go back!

Pros: Good food, Cheap, Friendly waitress

This is the reason we will return to Petersburg! - Edit

Cool place with nice and really tasty vegan burgers - maybe the best vegan burger I have ever tasted so far. Friendly and nice staff even though only a little english is spoken. No english menus, actually no menus at all. Maybe hard to find find because there is only a one sign on the street and then you have to climb few floors up to find this place. I have also a gluten-free diet which is time to time a bit problematic in Russia but in this place it was easy to negotiate and the dish was tasty nonetheless it was made without bread. Totally worth visiting as friend put it after tasted the burger: "This is the reason why I will return to Saint-Petersburg!"

Pros: Super nice staff!, Cool interior, Gluten-free friendly

Cons: Hard to find

Delicious Veggie + Vegan Burgers! - Edit

By far the most delicious veggie and vegan burgers in the whole city (and maybe the country). The owners are Hare Krishnans who know how to use Indian spices very well.

Because of their relaxed atmosphere and home-feel they don't have menus, but ask you to build your own burger with the following options:

Bun options:
- tomato italian
- "yellow" with turmeric and lentil
- rye-wheat with flaxseed
- Indian with curry and cumin

Patty options:
- lentil
- chickpea
- bean
- buckwheat
- spinach
+ added cheese or tofu

Sauce options:
- vegan pesto
- vegan (raw) "mayonaise"
- sour cream with black salt (VEGETARIAN)
- tomato chutny
- sweet and sour

Also each burger comes with deliciously fresh veggies. Be sure to specify whether you're a vegan or a vegetarian!

P.S. They don't accept credit cards, so make sure you have some cash on you!

Pros: Completely unique burger experience, cheap and high quality, Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff

Cons: Don't accept cards for payment, Are tricky to find (second floor)
