For the ‘Year of the Cow’, PETA Praises Patties That Make Cows Happy
Singapore – In honour of the Year of the Cow, PETA has named the eight Best Veggie Burgers in Singapore, which come from restaurants across the country. Made from good-for-you ingredients such as quinoa, lentils, mushrooms, and Beyond Meat, 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:
- Hans im Glück’s Angerling
- Love Handle’s Fillet-o-Fishless
- Privé’s Plant-Based Mushroom Swiss Burger
- VeganBurg’s Chili Krab
- Wellsmoocht’s BPMH
- nomVnom’s QQ Cheezy
- The Veggie Dojo’s Famous Big Mad
- Real Food’s Lentil Quinoa Burger
Images of the award-winning veggie burgers are available upon request. The restaurants will all receive framed certificates.
“The Year of the Cow 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 Singapore, it’s easy (and tasty) to save a cow in the Year of the Cow – and every year.”
PETA’s Chinese New Year billboard, donated by The Perfect Media Group, can be seen in Chinatown (directly facing the Chinatown MRT station) and at the Queensway Shopping Centre (on Alexandra Road, at the intersection with Jalan Bukit Merah) and encourages passersby to be kind to all animals.
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.
