Frost Burgers, 58 Wood Street, Liverpool, L1 4AQ – Visit Now
Frost Burgers is an American-style vegan diner in Liverpool’s Ropewalks area, feeding the growing appetite for a more ethical fast food experience.
Owned by Monami Frost – an international tattoo model, fashion designer and chef – Frost Burgers opened its doors on Liverpool’s Wood Street on 1 November 2018 (World Vegan Day) and has done so well that they’ve now opened a second outlet in Manchester.
Monami describes her offering as “Badass street food” and it certainly has plenty of attitude, as well as the calorific content to sustain a small army. But when you’re eating 100% plant-based, eco friendly food, you can probably afford to be a bit naughty once a week.
Move over Maccies, Frost Burgers are the new King of the block
Tucked away down Wood Street, one of Liverpool’s hippest avenues in the Ropewalks area, Frost Burgers is a laid back eaterie with industrial decor, bold graffiti wall art and banging tunes. There’s basic seating for about 20 people and the queues for both dine-in and takeaway can stretch outside the door, so make sure you arrive before the hunger pangs really kick in.
If you’ve never tried vegan fast food before then prepare to be amazed. The flavours and textures of the food are incredible, certainly up there with the best meat-free burgers we’ve ever tried. Move over Maccies, Frost Burgers are the new King of the block.
Our favourite is The Scorpion, two beef-free patties with melted spicy pepper ‘cheese’, yellow mustard, jalapenos, sriracha mayo, spicy chipotle paste, red onion, ketchup, tomato and lettuce, packed in a glazed burger bun. Other popular burgers include the slightly more modest Cheezburger, the Chicken-free with garlic mayo and The Veggie, a chickpea and spinach veggie patty topped with hummus, tucked inside a toasted bun.
The skin-on fries are perfectly seasoned and crunchy, with loads of different dips to dunk them in. If you really want to impress your dinner date, don’t miss out on the Frost shakes made from soft-serve vegan ice cream and available in biscoff, cookie, vanilla, banana, strawberry, chocolate and bubblegum flavours. They also do a killer No-Honeycomb Brownie. There’s more to veganism than just salad, you know.
Frost Burgers aim to operate ethically in every way. All of the cups and straws, wrappers, bags and napkins are made from recycled/recyclable materials and biodegradable and compostable bioplastics. Even the drinks are good for the planet; we love the Karma Cola which is organic and fairtrade with an ethical supply chain. Proof that fast food doesn’t have to cost the earth.
