The Northern Quarter is welcoming a new resident.
Manchester has gained quite the flavour for vegan food in recent years. Spoiled with a variety of cuisines, the city has seen major success stories in the likes of Purezza, Vegan Shack, V Rev and What The Pitta – and now, it’s set to gain a brand new plant-based resident in The Vurger Co.
Marking their fourth venue and their first-ever venture up North, London’s The Vurger Co has secured a spot in the Northern Quarter – joining an eclectic mix of bars and restaurants who have found huge fanbases in the quirky corner of the city.
Founded back in 2018 when they opened their first venue in Shoreditch, the vegan burger joint has become well-known for its fun plant-based creations – which includes vegan pork crackling, a buffalo ‘chicken’ burger, crispy dippers and even vegan mac and cheese.
Their tasty list of burgers – which are made from Beyond Meat patties, chickpeas, black beans, or vegan chicken – is joined by lip-smacking vegan milkshakes, limited edition specials (which includes their pork crackling) as well as dippers and salad bowls.
Founders Rachel Hugh and Neil Potts said: “We are incredibly excited to announce that our next restaurant will be opening in Manchester! Manchester has been a huge goal for us right from the start, and after spending a year sourcing the right site, we couldn’t be more excited to be launching our biggest restaurant site to date later this year.
“We’re opening right in the heart of the Northern Quarter, and it will be our most ambitious project to date. We’re putting everything into making this an incredible space and we can’t wait to welcome our amazing customers from Manchester really soon!”
Adding: “It’s one of our favourite cities as it’s always buzzing with energy and it’s bursting with creativity, so we are over the moon to be able to make this happen. It’s been a long and challenging 18 months but we’re looking forward to bringing the best of what we do to this amazing city.”
Details of the new venue are currently being held close to The Vurger Co’s chest, however, fans can expect their ‘largest restaurant site to date’. Stay tuned for more details coming soon. In the meantime, check out the incredible menu here.
