Veggie Burgers, Nepal & India

A surprising experience

sunny 95 °F

In the USA, we tend to avoid eating veggie burgers at restaurants because they are typically frozen factory patties resold with an incredible markup. In our first week traveling in Nepal we noticed veggie burgers on the menus but never gave them a second thought. One night Robin looked for an alternative to momos and decided to order a veggie burger. We were blown away when our 50 cent veggie burger and fries arrived in front of us in Pokhara! It had clearly just been made by hand, and was sooo delicious!

In McLeod Ganj we tried both veggie burgers and tofu burgers… in Amritstar we had one with hints of curry! Each time we were pleasantly surprised. Lesson learned:
“when traveling, let go of all expectations and don’t assume that you know what something is based on the English translation”

We even saw veggie burgers at KFC and McDonalds… and since McD’s in India does not contain a single beef burger, they instead offer paneer (thick tofu like cheese) burgers, and other fun vegetarian items.
