I think it’s safe to say that every vegetarian enjoys a good veggie burger. But have you ever had one that you CONSTANTLY think about and know that you’ll never ever find another veggie burger that romances your taste buds the same way? I have.
For those of you who don’t live in Arizona, I’m sorry that you don’t have access to this veggie burger:
It’s crafted by one of my favorite restaurants here in Arcadia, Wally’s American Pub n’ Grille. Not only is this a great place to grab a beer with friends, the menu boasts favorites with an extremely high success rate. I can vouch that I’ve never taken somebody here that didn’t want to go back the next day. Simply put: This place is fabulous.
I’m always trying to impress my grandparents with my choices about where we lunch. My grandfather, who we affectionately call “Pop”, LOVES his hamburgers. Among some other favorites like meat loaf, pot roast and Fish n’ Chips, Wally’s is known for their awesome hamburgers. Served with a confetti of sweet potato and regular fries, a beer-bettered onion ring and a dill pickle spear, Wally’s burgers are no joke. And it was most definitely “Pop Approved.” And the same can be said about the veggie burger.
This house-made black bean and rice patty is slathered in an Asian glaze, topped with melted swiss, a large helping of crisp iceberg lettuce, tomato, red onion, avocado, roasted red peppers and a black olive aioli. All of this sandwiched between a toasted asiago bun. YUM.
Needless to say, I was in a food coma for the rest of the day. What a blissful state to be in. 😉
