Food Fight: fantastic fake burgers
After engaging in a lot of Food Fights over meat, we wanted to shift the conversation to meatless options around town — specifically meat-like burgers.
🍔 Monica's pick: I'd heard great things about the meatless ranch cheeseburger at Upton's Breakroom, but it was sold out the day I went. Womp, womp.
- So I opted for the Impossible Burger ($10.95) from Lucy's in Humboldt Park. Sure, the place is best known for chicken, but don't miss their fake burger.
- Served on a soft brioche bun with bold condiments, this rich, juicy patty with a slightly meaty chew both delighted me and fooled my BF into thinking I gave him cow flesh.
- Owned by the folks at Piccolo Sogno, Maillard Tavern dresses up this plant-based burger with mushrooms, chipotle mayo, swiss cheese, and an interesting addition, cilantro.
- It's pricey ($16) but worth it.
