Gizzi Erskine's 'Filth' 3 Month Vegan Burger Pop-up in Shoreditch

Filth is a 3 month vegan burger pop-up from Gizzi Erskine, now open at 13 Bethnal Green Road (opposite Boxpark), within the Dirty Burger site.  It's open daily until the end or March (or so), and features a choice of two burgers (the Pure Filth, and the Seoul), plus a choice of sites and drinks, again all vegan.

I went today, and really liked it.  The Pure Filth Burger has a layer of vegan 'American Beer Cheese' which makes the experience a bit like eating a Big Mac, or a Whopper.  A good burger for meat eaters, who want to try something vegan!

"Gizzi Erskine and Rosemary Ferguson are bringing their plant-based fast food to Shoreditch as Filth opens on the old Dirty Burger site on Bethnal Green Road for a three month residency. The pair have been developing the concept for 18 months, working towards making nutritionally rich and environmentally friendly food that still tastes indulgent, including a pop-up at the Tate Modern. Now it’s launching in Shoreditch with the Filth Burger, which is completely plant-based but tastes like a classic cheeseburger.
It’s a black bean, black quinoa, soy mince and umami paste patty with beer cheese sauce, crispy onions, cucumber pickles, lettuce, confit garlic aioli and beetroot ketchup in a beetroot and black sesame bun. The menu also features the Seoul Burger, which is the same patty topped with kimchi, pear bulgogi sauce, gochujang aioli, crispy onions, pickles and lettuce in a carrot and turmeric bun, with sweet potato fries with seaweed miso dust and kale, broccoli and almond salad on the side. They’re even serving up thick vegan shakes made with Booja Booja ice cream."
