For your carnivores out there, this is a bit of a kick in the bollocks…

A burger in New York has just been the named the best in the world by GQ magazine and only costs £4, but there’s a catch… it doesn’t contain any meat whatsoever. What. The. Fuck. Mind blown.

An impressive feat? Yes. Controversial? Very. The famous or infamous (depending how you look at it) Superiority Burger contains a full vegan patty, sandwiched in a bun with iceberg lettuce, tomato, dill pickle and sauce.

Instagrammers have been raving about its taste and texture, but all the ingredients in the chunky, nutty burger are unknown and the chef isn’t to keen to reveal his secret recipe… no surprises there really.

The owner of the new East Village Superiority Burger joint, Brooks Headley, told the Wall Street Journal about the rise of meat-free burgers and said it’s not about whether the patty is beef or not.

He said:

I don’t need something indistinguishable from meat in order to feel like I’m eating a hamburger. The act of eating a burger is so iconic and so American, and it’s not just about the patty. It’s the squish of the bun, the crunch of the lettuce and the tang of the ketchup- there’s something primally satisfying in all that.

What has the world come to!? If you need me I’ll be crying onto my Big Mac…
