I’m not sure the true intentions of Zen Burger in New York City but either way it is a welcome site. Zen Burger serves Vegetarian / Vegan Fast Food on Lexington Avenue between 45th and 46th Street in New York City. I think it’s meant more for those who are not already living a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle but hopefully it will open the eyes of some meat eaters, at least to the junk food side of being a non-meat eater.

  1. Diners beware!!!
    I was extreme excited when I heard that Zen Burger was open (Zagat email) seeing that I am a vegetarian with allergies who misses a good burger. I was impressed by the brightly colored, retro decor and the presentation of the menu items. BUT! Thats is when everything went awry. Despite the friendliness of the staff, not one employee was informed about what ANYTHING is made of. I ordered the beef burger combo, and i went to choose a drink. These people didnt even know whether the tea was made with peach flavoring or real peach essence (Im allergic). Then comes the burger……..cold, with the cheese far, far beneath the lettuce, tomato and onion also refrigerator fresh nestled in a toasted, cold organic whole wheat bun (once again, allergic). NO WHERE on this menu does the bread appear to be wheat, nor is it noted. The fries??? Let’s just say, Burger King fries meets microwave fast fries from your grocer’s freezer. I tok it back, asked for some other bread. My options were delived by the kitchen supervisor/chef/cook himself: a bagel or a wrap. I took the bagel. One of the employees proceeded to remake my order, and the young man put EVERYTHING I didnt want on the burger right back on it. Nevermind that, I could scrape it off. Got my burger, some new fries (same taste) and I was ready. So I thought. This bagel that I was told wasnt whole wheat, bore the unmistakable brown hue only give to rye and wheat. I took one small bite and BAAAM…….we have wheat! I was itching within 5 minutes. I was very upset. Not once was I offered my money back. I told them IT WAS IMPORTANT to advertise the contenets of their food and be knowledgable about what they sell and I was off to buy Benadryl (with no offers to pay for it). In my woozy state, my navagational skills were severely flawed. It took me 3 hours to make my usual 1 hr. 15 min. commute home. Im very sad.

  2. I had a similar experience! Cold, nasty, and coca-cola? This place sucked, I’m a life long vegan, and really hope this place gets it together. I was in Colorado last year and ate at a place called “VG Burgers”, that place was unbelievable, no comparison, get it together Zen.
