A vegan burger that leaves a lot to be desired in almost every aspect.

Taste

Everything about the flavor of this veggie burger was off. It was bitter with chemical undertones and left a bad aftertaste.

Price

For $9, you’ll get four tiny 2.5-ounce burgers, which is on the higher end for vegan burgers. This is about 88 cents per ounce. Other plant-based options, like Impossible Burger Patties, will cost about 81 cents per ounce, while MorningStar Farms costs just 52 cents per ounce.

Texture

The texture is awful; there is no other way to put it. It’s dry and hard, yet mushy in the middle. The burgers are so thin–about half the thickness of what’s depicted on the carton–that they dry out super fast in the skillet.

EV’s Take: A Cursed Burger

I almost didn’t even want to write this review because I didn’t want to spend more time thinking about this foul burger than I had to. But, after getting some distance between me and my bad burger experience, I’m ready to tell you how much I hate this product.

I try to be kind in these reviews; after all, a review is purely subjective. You may try this burger and absolutely love it. Personally, I think it simply should not exist, but that’s just me. Everything about it– from the flavor, texture, and cooking time–was a miss. 

Atlantic Sea Farms Ginger Sesame Burger Review

At first glance, the packaging looks promising. On the front of the package, there’s a nice, uniformly thick burger that looks delicious. The meat has little flecks of color, and it looks so nutritious! Aside from that, I love ginger, I love sesame, and I love burgers—this has to be an easy win, right? Absolutely not. 

The first issue is that the burgers are tiny and misshapen. They are a fraction of the size of what’s on the packaging, and they are not uniform in size at all—just small, thin, irregular little patties. Immediately, this gives me an uneasy feeling. It’s deceptive and sets a bad tone for dinner. The color also just seems a bit sadder than the package. It’s very gray and just doesn’t look appetizing at all.

The second issue is that cooking took longer than the package suggested. Getting each burger to 165ºF took about 18–20 minutes total, about 6–8 minutes longer than the package suggested. In a nicely seasoned skillet, the burgers did stick quite a bit. Both issues–timing and sticking–seem to be common themes from reviews I’ve read online.

Lastly, the taste. It’s bad. The flavor combo just doesn’t work well together for reasons I don’t understand. Everything in the ingredients should play nicely together, but it has chemical undertones and leaves a bad taste in your mouth. One reviewer described it as a “ginger cleaning product,” which is just so accurate. No amount of sriracha mayo, ketchup, or vegan cheese can save this burger.

What are Atlantic Sea Farms Sea-Veggie Burgers Made From?

For what it’s worth, they do offer a clean ingredient list. There are no hydrogenated fats or corn syrup (though maybe it could use a little fat of some variety…).

Here’s what you’re getting in each burger:

Kelp, Green Chickpeas, Pea Protein, Brown Rice, Ginger, Sesame Oil, Pea Starch, Chickpea Flour, Oat Fiber, Toasted Sesame Seeds, Granulated Garlic, Nutritional Yeast, Kosher Salt, Red Pepper Flakes.

How did Exploring Vegan eat the sea-veggie burgers?

Normally, I try to provide a recipe with each review but I’m skipping it for these burgers. I had a basic burger night with these, and I topped them with Good Planet Pepperjack Cheese (which I loved), tomato, lettuce, and cucumber. I also made vegan sriracha mayo, which tasted great. Unfortunately, the burger just kind of ruined the whole meal.

At the end of the day, there are just way better vegan burger options out there, and I will continue to review them! Save your $9 and buy a better vegan burger from someone else—or make one at home!
