I don’t visit half as much as I’d like to but I’m very aware that Gloucester Green Food Market in central Oxford offers a great variety of fresh food from awesome independent businesses.
Recently, I had found a fairly new business that was frequenting the market called V Stack. As I read more and learnt about their story I became more and more curious about their offering.
Katie and Bonita (pictured below) both have day jobs in London. On their weekends they chose to open a vegan burger business, V Stack. Their core offering is their deep-fried cauliflower burger but they are also serving two types of fries (normal or cajun), wings and drinks.
After speaking with them I definitely had a real sense of their passion for both veganism and offering fresh, quality and awesome food.
I didn’t actually try their wings as I could only handle their burger (you’ll see why soon when you see the size of it), but this is what their wings look like above.
I am not vegan and had never tried a vegan burger before visiting Katie and Bonita’s stall (V Stack) so really didn’t know what to expect when taking the first bite from their burger.
The first bite can only be described as really fresh, light, crispy and tasty with a bit of a spicy kick (but not too much spiciness!). I was pleasantly surprised. In addition, I was also trying vegan mayonnaise for the first time with my cajun fries which I would describe as a garlic-y yoghurt – really nice too.
Conclusions and final thoughts
I mean you just have to take a look at the pictures above to see how good the food is at V Stack. I can honestly say that my first vegan burger experience was a very good one and it would be hard to beat.
Can you tell the difference between a vegan burger and your typical beef burger? Of course, but, I knew what I was trying and would absolutely have it again.
If you are at the Gloucester Green food market be sure to look out for V Stack but remember they are only open on Saturday’s.
