Columbus Ohio has an amazing vegan fast food place and I was finally able to experience it the other day. Eden Burger, located in the college area on North High Street offers all of the vegan comfort foods that you could ever hope for – mac and cheese, mozzarella sticks, nuggets doused in buffalo or bbq sauce, milkshakes, burgers, fries, etc. It has been a long time since I hung out in Columbus, so Eden Burger has been on my list for a few years now. I couldn’t wait to try the food and I was starving when I got there so don’t judge me for the obnoxious amount of food that I ordered.
I spent a whopping $36 including a tip, but here is what I got: the eden burger, a brownie milkshake, mozzarella sticks, buffalo tempeh nuggets. I must say that almost everything would absolutely be worth getting again. The mozzarella sticks were my favorite item. It isn’t often you get to have something like that when you are trying to stick to eating vegan. The breading on them was crunchy and delightful and the cheese in the middle was gooey and perfect. The marinara sauce that was served on the side with was a perfect match and had a nice flavor.
We all know I’m a huge sucker for vegan mac and cheese. It is probably my favorite vegan comfort food to order out. This mac and cheese was creamy and delicious. The buffalo tempeh nuggets were good as they were nice and saucy as I like nuggets to be. My only gripe is that I forgot to get some ranch dip on the side to have something cool to go with the spiciness of the buffalo sauce. The eden burger was pretty good. I would prefer the impossible burger patty instead of whatever homemade patty Eden Burger has going on, but I liked the melty vegan cheese and the toppings that came on it. As I’ve said before, I’m not a huge fan of vegan burgers when I go out to eat because they usually don’t measure up to how good the ones I make at home are, but I wanted to give one a try here and I wasn’t disappointed. I’m a huge fan of vegan milkshakes and I felt like the milkshake here was disappointing. Maybe it is just because I’ve been spoiled by Strong Hearts Café which has the best vegan milkshakes in the world. The milkshake was too thin of a consistency for me. It sure looked delicious though.
Overall I was very impressed with the food here! If you are a vegan fast food junkie like I am, then definitely be sure to try out Eden Burger next time you are in Columbus!
