We have tried veggie burgers in so many restaurants. But, so far, two of them stand out. I want to share it with the rest of the veggie-burger-eating world.
The most favorite so far is the HAIGHT-ASHBURY burger from Burger Tap and Shake
This is how it is described in the menu:
Crispy Falafel Patty, Pickled Vegetables,
Feta, Cilantro Raita
Its basically a falafel burger. It is unimaginably tasty. It is made with a bun that feels like an egg bread (maybe brioche or challah). The combination of pickled vegetables with the raita, and, just the right amount of feta with the falafel patty makes for a perfect bite. We also tried a couple of shakes – pineapple(my favorite), cherry, and the BTS (Butterfinger, Twix, & Snickers) shake. These are delicious as well. I myself am not a shakes person, so, I cant compare to other places. I can just say these were all very good.Do try it for yourself if you get a chance. You won’t regret it.
The other burger is from Juice Joint Cafe – Adrien’s Veggie Burger
This is how its described in the menu
Adrien’s Veggie Burger
Portobello mushrooms, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, black beans, goat cheese, arugula and basil pesto served on a multi-grain roll
Its a bean burger that has been all decked out. The artichoke hearts and arugula add the crunch factor to the burger. The goat cheese (again, perfectly balanced amount) and basil-pesto provide the burst of flavor to the burger.
Of course, the Juice Joint Cafe serves fresh fruit and vegetable juices. Their fixed combinations are really good too.
Since I am talking about the Juice Joint Cafe, I must mention the Vegan, GF cookies they carry. I forget the name of the baking company now, but, I will update as soon as I make another trip down there or, if it comes to me. They are huge and moist cookies – one of the best cookies I have ever had. I have only tried the Lemon poppy-seed cookie. But, let me say this – it is difficult to have at your desk and not finish it all by yourself. I have tried to save some from later, but, have never been successful!
