“Yes, a cheeseburger and fries is probably my favourite meal. But I don’t eat ground beef anymore.” — Eric Schlosser
Once in a while we actually go out to eat, ha ha! One of my favorite spots in San Francisco is The Plant Cafe. 99% of what they serve is organically-grown, and most items on the menu are vegan or can be made vegan. The Plant makes a really great veggie burger called, appropriately, the Plant Burger. Here’s a description of the Plant Burger from The Plant’s menu:
Plant Burger – Served with sides of mixed greens, roasted potatoes & pickles. All Plant burgers are topped with grilled onions, lettuce, tomato & vegan aioli on your choice of focaccia, whole wheat sourdough, or a bun. Patties are made in-house from lentils, mushrooms, beets, cashews & bulgar wheat.
I always order the Wasabi Plant Burger, which is topped with wasabi raspberry aioli and sauerkraut. Usually I order it on focaccia but I forgot this time and so it arrived on wholewheat sourdough, which was actually just as good. I enjoyed this with a Blue Bottle soy latte.
Hamburger Fact: The hamburger “debuted” in the US at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri.
