Moove Over, Meat! PETA Names the 8 Best Veggie Burgers in Malaysia

For the ‘Year of the Ox, PETA Praises Patties That Make Cows Happy

Kuala Lumpur – In honour of the Year of the Ox, PETA has named the eight Best Veggie Burgers in Malaysia, which come from restaurants across the country. Made from good-for-you ingredients such as tempeh, lentils, mushrooms, and jackfruit, veggie burgers are tasty and animal-friendly – unlike meaty ones. Cows killed for meat are confined to filthy feedlots, transported in all weather extremes to abattoirs, 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:

Images of the award-winning veggie burgers are available upon request. The restaurants will all receive framed certificates.

“The Year of the Ox is the perfect time to show compassion to cows – who feel joy, love, pain, and fear just as humans, cats, dogs, and other animals do – by leaving them off our plates,” says PETA Senior Vice President Jason Baker. “With so many delicious veggie burgers to choose from in restaurants across Malaysia, it’s easy (and tasty) to save cows in the Year of the Ox – and every year.”

Beyond Burgers are widely available in Malaysia at restaurants such as PC Studio, and a selection of savoury, easy-to-prepare veggie burger patties is available to purchase online via Vegan District.

Every person who goes vegan saves the lives of nearly 200 animals each year. Going meat-free protects human health, too: like swine flu, bird flu, 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.
