Hit vegan chef Gaz Oakley - of YouTube channel Avant Garde Vegan - has joined forces with London restaurant The Vurger Co. to offer a limited edition burger, coming next week.

The burger

Oakley told PBN: "My inspiration was to create something unique, summery & tropical tasting."

The jerk-spiced burger - dubbed 'Gaz's Kickin' Caribbean Vurger' - is topped with coconut bacon, fried plantain, and mango ketchup.

The pro chef says the result is 'a great blend of sweetness, spice & also soft & crispy textures'.



The burger's official launch date is June 30.

Oakley will be at the restaurant from noon - and says he would 'really love to meet' his viewers.

He added that this collaboration is a forerunner for when he opens his own restaurant, a plan he will officially announce when he hits one million YouTube subscribers.
