This is my 50th review posted! 50 veggie burgers reviewed so far, wow! I’m really happy with how far my little blog has come. Thank you so much to everyone who has been reading and commenting

I’d been wanting to check out Boneshakers for awhile, and read many other great vegan and vegetarian bloggers talking about it (including blogger-friend Marty, who reviewed Boneshaker’s burger here). So when my friend Monica and I decided to go there for dinner one evening, I was very excited – and glad I had remembered to bring my camera!


I ordered “The Hillbomber” – homemade (vegan) veggie patty, tomato, lettuce, and vegan chipotle mayo on a Kaiser roll, served with a small side salad.

It was delicious! The patty was slightly spicy, thin and crispy –definitely homemade, always a plus! A little dry, but the toppings made up for that - I’m a huge chipotle fan, so the vegan chipotle mayo really completed the whole burger for me. The lettuce and tomatoes were nice and fresh… and I splurged and spent an extra $2 for tempeh bacon as well. It’s hard to resist that tasty stuff (don’t even mention Brooklyn Mac…)


My only (minor) complaint was that the bun was just a little too big for the whole burger. Gotta have that perfect bun-to-patty ratio! Nonetheless, this is still one of the better vegan burgers in NYC, and I’m very glad I finally tried it. And a good price, too! Although all the possible add-on toppings (vegan bacon, cheese, avocado) will likely tempt you to spend more, as they did to me.

Monica, who also ordered the burger, licked her plate clean!

I can’t wait to go back to sample some of the other (non-burger) sandwiches on the menu as well. I did treat myself to a vegan cookie before we left, too. Delicious, again!

  6. Blogger brunch? Blogger lunch? Just keep me in the loop! I'll more than likely have to fly off somewhere at a moment's notice but I'll be there in spirit.

    Why do I keep calling this place Bonecrushers?
