A VEGAN burger joint is readying itself to become the latest addition to Brighton’s historic Lanes.

Vurger Co has filled the windows of its future site with posters promising future customers the restaurant is “coming soon”.

The building lies in the shadow of a huge circus mural celebrating Hanningtons Lane, the latest addition to Brighton’s popular shopping district.

Vurger Co offers a “100 per cent vegan brand” with a menu of fast food with a twist.

Its website says it aims to “make vegetables sexy again”.

The company also has a policy of “zero to landfill” with all the packaging it uses being made from plants and fully compostable.

Vurger Co already has sites in Shoreditch and Canary Wharf, but its latest venture will be the brand’s first foray outside of London.

There will be plenty of competition, however, with Brighton being named the most vegan and vegetarian-friendly city in the UK in October last year.

According to research by money comparison site finder.com, the city has the most meat-free restaurants per resident.

The analysis compared the number of vegetarian and vegan venues serving food compared to the population in 331 towns and cities, and found that Brighton boasts 38 for its 139,001 residents, which is one for every 3,658 people.
