So I have reviewed Umami Burger before and was just not blown away. A little too fru fru for my pallate, but I wanted to try the Impossible Burger. It is a completely plant based burger that bleeds and is supposed to taste just like a burger, so I had to try it.
So my mom and I went to try it and got 2 burgers, an order of fries, an order of onion rings and drinks and it was over $50 dollars, which is really pushing it for a burger.
The burger is decent, and does taste mostly like a hamburger, but honestly it tastes like a fast food burger, and not a great one (not 5 Guys Level for sure). A cheap tasting fast food burger, which has no meet in it, and costs about $25 a person. Hmmm. Not quite there yet.
Yes I would have one once in a while I guess, but it just didn't blow me away like I was hoping. I could use the no cholesterol burger.
And I even got it in it's non-began form with cheese (I usually like my hamburgers without cheese, probably because I am lactose intolerant and have a milk allergy), but I wanted the whole experience and it probably needs the cheese because it isn't quite a hamburger, so you need to cover the flavor a bit.
The burger has 2 patties, caramelized onions, American cheese (bleck) miso-mustard, house spread, dill pickles, lettuce and tomato, and it is the toppings that make it. Maybe it would be better with out their fru fru ketchup and mustard? I don't know. I wanted a burger I could have anytime, but at this price and this taste it just isn't there. If it was cheaper I would honestly have them more often, but it just isn't there yet.
