I ended up in DUMBO for the first time in awhile, and was lucky enough to be meeting a friend who had promised he knew a good place to get lunch – a place that had veggie burgers! So here is my first review from Brooklyn…
The menu described this the patty as “ground lentils, rice, barley, red peppers, beets, onions, zucchini, and corn”. It sounded delicious.
And it was!
A wonderful blend of ingredients and flavor, topped with the standard lettude/tomato/onion – but with the addition of sprouts, which was excellent. The curry mayo dressing which was an unexpected yet very tasty flavor which complimented the burger extremely well - although if you wanted the burger to be vegan, I'm sure it would still taste great even without the mayo.
The only problem with it was that the patty itself did not hold together. It was actually already falling out of the bun when it was served to me, as evidenced in the photograph. Eating it was a rather messy process, and I had to ask the waitress to bring me a fork so I could at least enjoy all the pieces that spilled out onto my plate. It was kind of like the sloppy-joe of veggie burgers. I would have probably given it four stars if it were not for that. Of course, it still tasted great!
The bun was good too. And the fries were thick and crispy, although honestly I was too full to eat all of them. Plus I had splurged on dessert for myself, because the huge glass display cases of cookies and cakes and pastries were ridiculously tempting while I waited in line to place my order.
