Dirty Vegan- new vegan restaurant in Södermalm
The owners of the brunch place Greesy Spoon has now opened their second place; Dirty Vegan. Dirty Vegan serves up American inspired comfort food- completely vegan.
At a corner street of the long busy street Ringvägen, the new vegan diner Dirty vegan has moved in. Rather isolated in a city part of Södermalm you rarely visit for lunch, this little NYC inspired diner offers American comfort food such as burgers, “buffalo wings”, hot dogs and milk shakes. This is a place to go if you want to grab a beer and a burger with some friends.
We order the mushroom burger which had a wonderful crispy surface and a rich umami flavour from the oyster mushrooms and miso mayo. The Dirty Chickn Burger had a nice burger texture and sting from the sriracha mayo.
The menu however, was not as fun and innovative as we had hoped for. A few burgers, one hot dog, one kebab are basically the mains. These types of menus can be found in every corner of Brooklyn and Greenwich village. A way to really stand out is to offer more fun sauces and flavours, more to choose of in the menu and different kinds of meatless burger options.
The burgers were also very tiny, even though the staff said in advance that the burger portions were really big in comparison with the other dishes. After ending up with a quite high bill after adding sweet potato fries and truffle mayo, which were not included in the mains, we felt a bit robbed.
This place has potential, but the portions should be more like the American sizes and the menu has to be updated soon.

The atmosphere has a 70s feel to it with wooden walls, bar, table and chairs. You either sit on high bar chairs or in a diner booth with black leather.
Friendly and humble staff who helped us move the stroller outside the restaurant and lock it for us. The service staff are young and only English speaking.
