When I was growing up, I ate a lot of McDonald’s. My parents weren’t that clued into nutrition when we were younger (in fact, we mostly taught them about it), so it wasn’t out of the ordinary to have Macca’s for dinner a couple of times a week. When we were in our teens, Ming and I used to get McDonald’s delivery (yep, they deliver in Singapore!), even though our closest McDonald’s was probably about 200m away. Lazy little shits.
Our typical order in our delivery was a large Big Mac meal each, a Double Quarter Pounder to share, 20 Chicken Nuggets, McWings and a McFlurry each. Ming didn’t get fat, but I sure as hell did.
But before I’d discovered the joys of a Big Mac and Double Quarter Pounder, for me, nothing could beat the Filet-O-Fish. A lot of people I’ve spoken to always thought that it was the weird burger no one ordered, but I loved it. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out Vegan Burgers by Mooshies in Brick Lane did a vegan version!
It’s called the Fillet-Om-Phish and it is just… wow. It’s made with aubergine. Aubergine. How the hell did they do that? My mind is blown!
A must-have with a trusty side of ‘cheesy’ chips.
Oh, and a cheeky PB&J cupcake.
An absolute treat of a meal. The bun could have been better, but that’s pretty much the only flaw I could pick out of the burger.
The couple who run the place are absolutely lovely, so be sure to stop by and say hello! Any now-vegan Filet-O-Fish lovers out there, you’re welcome!
