Everyone has their own opinions on what makes a delicious burger. Ultimately though what it really comes down to is the ingredients. Use high quality, fresh ingredients and you have what it takes to make a really tasty burger.


We top our juicy fungi fermented MATR burger with fried mushrooms – fungi enough for ya’? Load it with two kinds of cheese – whipped feta and oozy melted cheddar.

Pro-tip: Don’t skimp on the bun quality and lightly toast it. If you want super melty cheese put the MATR patty with cheese on top in a pre-heated pan, add a little water and close the lid for about 30 seconds.
