PETA Praises Patties That Make Cows Happy
Dubai – PETA has named the 10 best veggie burgers which come from restaurants in Dubai. Made from good-for-you ingredients such as mushrooms, beans, sweet potatoes, and chickpeas, veggie burgers are tasty and animal-friendly – unlike meat-based ones. Cows killed for meat are raised on filthy feedlots, transported in all weather extremes to slaughterhouses, and strung up by one leg before their throats are slit, sometimes while they’re still conscious. It’s no wonder more and more people are opting for burgers without murder!
In no particular order, here are the winners:
- Soul Santé Café’s Shroom Sliders, featuring a mushroom patty and all the trimmings
- Shakespeare and Co’s Vegan Burger, featuring a vegetable patty, vegan mozzarella, jalapeños, and all the trimmings
- Wild and the Moon’s Wild Burger, featuring a patty made with beans, rice, and mushrooms; vegan cheese; and all the trimmings
- PAUL’s Mrs Vegan Burger, featuring a sweet potato patty, tahini gremolata, avocado, and all the trimmings and served with a side salad
- BurgerFuel’s V8 Vegan, featuring a patty made with pumpkin, carrot, and chickpeas and topped with vegan cheddar cheese, miso pea mash, vegan aioli, relish, and all the trimmings
- Catch 22’s The Vegan, featuring a meat-free patty, vegan cheese, pineapple, crispy sweet potato frites, vegan mayo, and all the trimmings
- Le Burger’s Hot & Vegan, featuring a patty made from chickpeas, beetroot, or popcorn, depending on your choice; vegan cheddar cheese; vegan mayo; and jalapeños, topped with all the trimmings
- Soulgreen’s Red Quinoa Burger, featuring a quinoa and beetroot burger, vegan mayo, and all the trimmings and served with crisps and dips
- Common Grounds’s Avocado Burger, featuring an avocado and chickpea patty, beetroot hummus, vegan mayo, and all the trimmings and served with either sweet potato fries or salad

“It’s so easy to help prevent cows – who feel joy, love, pain, and fear, just as humans, cats, and other animals do – from enduring a horrific death by leaving them off our plates,” says PETA Senior Vice President Jason Baker. “There are so many delicious and award-winning veggie burgers to choose from in Dubai’s restaurants that it’s clear that vegan eating is becoming as big as the city’s Burj Khalifa.”
Every person who goes vegan saves the lives of nearly 200 animals each year. Going meat-free protects human health, too: Like bird flu, mad cow disease, and SARS, COVID-19 has been linked to eating animals – and so have heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and cancer.
PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, which is the human-supremacist view that other species are nothing more than commodities.
