Get In My Belly: Veggie Burgers! A Vegetarian’s Guide To The Best Veggie Burgers in the San Francisco Bay Area
Who has two thumbs and loves veggie burgers? This girl! Yup, I love ‘em and I can eat them every day. Well, as long as they’re not disgusting boca/garden cardboard cutouts that some marketing experts call veggie burgers. So I make it a point to try as many veggie burgers I can around the San Francisco/Bay Area and believe you me, I’ve found some delicious spots in the area. And now you’re about to find out where you should be eating your next veggie burger.
Visit SliderBar Cafe in Palo Alto, CA and try the Vegetarian Slider made with garbanzos, potatoes, onions, sun flower seeds & bell peppers served on a multigrain bun served with mixed greens, caramelized onions & bell peppers & roasted garlic sauce). Yum. Yum.
Los Altos Grill
One of my absolute favorite and also the most expensive one on my list. Los Altos Grill is part of the Hillstone family. Their veggie burger is to die for. This is a MUST-TRY for all vegetarians & meat eaters! They describe it as their amazing house-made recipe with melted Monterey Jack. And amazing it is!
THE PLANT – Cafe Organic
Visit The Plant Organic Cafe in San Francisco and try their delicious Plant Burger. It’s a house made patty made from lentils, mushrooms, beets, cashews on bulgar wheat buns served with roasted onion, leaf lettuce, tomatoes, aioli, mixed greens & herb roasted fingerling potatoes.
Source in San Francisco is one of the few places that carries an array of sweat inducing hot sauces including one that’s made with the infamous ghost pepper! Their burgers are made with beets, celery, carrots, lentils, mushrooms, brown rice, fresh herbs, soy protein, garlic & onion served on a fresh house baked pita.
Roam Artisan Burger
Last but not least, Roam Artisan Burger in San Francisco. Oh man, this one is so delicious. Made with brown rice, veggies and a lot of other yummy ingredients! They have endless amounts of toppings so you can create your own burgers. And for those with choice paralysis issues, they have 8 different carefully crafted styles that are a sure to satisfy your belly (my personal favorite is Tejano- Pepper Jack, Jalapeño Relish, Avocado, Tomato, White Corn Strips, Herb Ranch).
If I had to pick my 2 favorites, it’ll have to be Roam Artisan Burger & Los Altos Grill but eating veggie burgers at any of the above locations makes me a happy camper. You guys should definitely awaken the vegetarian in you (if he/she isn’t already up) and try these burgers! Also if you know of any other gems around the San Francisco/peninsula/south bay area please share with me. I’m obsessed and I will really appreciate it =)
