Spain: Goiko Goes Vegan with Three New Plant-Based Burgers 

Edit 7th March: these burgers can be made vegan if ordered without mayonnaise.

Goiko, one of Spain’s largest burger chains, has launched three new vegan burger options on its menus featuring Beyond Meat and Violife. Goiko’s new plant-based menu offerings also include a new starter and a salad, as alt meat continues to grow in popularity across the country. 

As well as two restaurants in Paris, France, Goiko has over 80 locations across Spain, making it one of the country’s most popular premium burger restaurants which has until now been almost exclusively focused on animal products. The new vegan creations include the Edamami – a veggie burger made with edamame, broccoli, couscous and rice, the Pollotariana – a plant-based chicken burger with roasted peppers, and grilled onion, and La Greta – made with Beyond Meat. All of the burgers come with Violife cheese.

Goiko’s plant-based options also extend to new vegan starters and salads on the menu, with Hummus Sapiens, a duo of basil and chickpea, and the Sana-horia, a green salad with superfoods.
