This does not qualify for maaris ayin. When people see a kosher certified milchig place they know it is ok. This is the same as any veggie burger.

That's not how maaris ayin works...

Maaris ayin has not only to do with “what people will think” it also applies “bchadrei chadarim”
lechora there should be a siman on the actual burger that makes your realise it isn’t a regualer burger although I don’t remember if that’s a necessity by maaris ayin of a derabonon.

You're wrong

You don’t need a siman on the food, rather near the food is sufficient.
עיין שו”ע יו”ד סימן פז סעיף ג בהגה. וגם סוף סימן סו.
ובנוגע לחילוק בין דאורייתא לרבנן לא מצאתי שום פוסק שכותב את זה. והרי דם דגים הוי מראת עין דאורייתא וסגי בסימן אצל הדם. ומה שכתב שזה הוי מראת עין של דרבנן, הלא הוי ידוע שבשר בחלב אסור מדאורייתא אפי’ לצלי!עיין סי’ פז שך ס”ק א’ ובשפ”ד שם. ועיין בחוו”ד סי’ צב סק”ו

Yum!

I am sure it’s kosher, however it’s looks so much as a regular meat
It will be very confusing especially for children
