Nothing pickles my fancy as much as a good, creative veggie patty. Vicki’s Diner, a newish burger place in Winnipeg’s Exchange District, does a great Brown Rice and Lentil Patty. It’s not as soft and smooth as most veggie patties I’ve had but that’s a good thing. I’m not one for meat substitutes so I really liked that I could taste a little bit of rice with each bite.

The rest is nothing fancy. And it doesn’t claim to be. It’s Gluten free and topped with mustard, onions, pickles, tomato, and lettuce. So much lettuce. It’s just a really good, basic, veggie burger.
If you’re hungrier you have the option of sides like Onion rings (which are supposed to be amazing), a few variations of fries, pita, and salads. I had the Strawberry Milkshake on a previous visit and it is delightfully thick and creamy.
The only criticism I would have is that the drinks are a pricey $2.50 for a can. For a burger joint, that too one which relies on takeaway (the seating is very, very, limited), it didn’t seem like it was priced right.
