Not vegan, but it’s pretty tasty. Kinda a double-double animal style, but with two Impossible Burger patties, real cheese, real Russian dressing, house pickles, house mustard, bibb lettuce, and grilled and raw onions.
On the other hand… they still cook it way past medium. The “meat” is pretty gray by the time it gets to you… but none of the latke crust that the one at Crossroads had.
So, for your $16 you get a decent double-double analogue, but vegetarian (again… not vegan…). No sides included.
A neat novelty, but really, really pricey for what you actually get.
As I say, I liked this better than the Crossroads version, in large part because the condiments and bun, as well as their ratio to the patty itself, were all better across the board. That said, I probably wouldn’t order it again, not ahead of my beloved Greenbird.
Part of the problem is the Impossible Burger is just kind of a gut bomb. Don’t order this thing expecting a healthy alternative to beef. It’s loaded with fat and sodium and sits in your stomach just like a regular burger. I actually picked up a pastrami sandwich at Wexler’s but ended up roasting some broccoli for dinner.
Do tell? I’m looking for a vegetarian burger option for this weekend. I get a frozen one at TJ’s that my son likes (requires almost deep frying to get the crispy edges), but was wondering about other ones.
The Greenbird is turkey, not veggie, but definitely worth a try. It’s my favorite burger at Umami by a mile. May not appeal to a kid though. It’s turkey burger with sprouts, butter lettuce, avocado, and green cheese.
Ahhh… I normally don’t eat turkey burgers, but I did have one for DoTM (report to follow). Maybe I’ll try the Greenbird one day. I know some feel Umami has lost its mojo, but I still like the burgers. Fake truffle or not (idk), I love the Truffle Burger. It pretty much has truffle in everything - the aioli, cheese, glaze - but still manages to be subtle.
