McDonald's New Zealand has today launched its brand new McVeggie burger to Auckland customers.

In a short two-week trial, the McVeggie burger will be available from three Auckland McDonald's stores, including Mt Wellington, Royal Oak and Stoddard Rd branches.

The plant-based burger comes with a vegetable patty which is crumb coated and made up of a mixed vegetables including potato, peas, corn, carrot and onion.

The patty also contains cheese, herbs and spices and the burger is finished off with whole leaf lettuce, fresh tomato, tasty cheese and topped off with a creamy garlic aioli in a chilli chive bun.

While the vegetable patty is vegetarian, McDonald's admits it is fried using the same equipment as the McChicken patty, meaning the veggie patty may not be suitable for all vegetarians.

The burger costs $8.20 on its own or $12 for a medium combo, available for two weeks from today.
