A burger in New York City has just been named the best in the world  and it doesn’t even contain any meat.

The famous $6 (£4) Superiority Burger, which has a fully vegan patty, has just been named the best the world has to offer by GQ magazine.

An impressive feat and you just know it’s going to be a controversial choice.

People have been raving about the taste and texture of the chunky nutty burger but no one knows exactly what’s in it  just that no cows were harmed in its making.

It comes sandwiched in a bun with iceberg lettuce and tomato on top, plus dill pickle and sauce.

The owner of the new East Village Superiority Burger joint, Brooks Headley, wants to keep his vegan burger a secret, won’t divulge its ingredients.

But he spoke to the Wall Street Journal about the rise of meat-free burgers.

"I don’t need something indistinguishable from meat in order to feel like I’m eating a hamburger,"said Brooks.
