I reviewed the veggie burger at Enid's last August, back in my early days of veggie-burger-reviewing, but recently I returned to the restaurant for drinks one evening with a friend. And after a couple whiskeys, we started to think we might be hungry for some bar snacks...

That's when I noticed this item on the menu: "Slider Trio: burger, veggie burger, pulled pork"

I eagerly asked our bartender if I could order the trio with just three veggie burgers, instead of the meat ones. Sometimes restaurants are needlessly grumpy about substitutions like that, but Enid's was happy to accomodate my vegetarian request (this is also the restaurant which says that many of their items, including veggie burgers, "can be made vegan upon request", so I should have known they would be nice like that!).


Look how cute they are! This was my first time ever eating sliders. Even before I became a vegetarian, I was not a big fan of hamburgers. And I've only heard of restaurants serving veggie sliders a couple times. So I was really excited to finally be able to order them!

In my hand, so you can see just how adorably miniature they are!

And they were just as delicious as I remember Enid's full-seized veggie burger being. I shared one with my friend and he, a meat-eater, found it incredibly enjoyable as well. Spicy, mixed vegetable patty topped with a pickle and dijon mayo, all held together with a cute little sweet-tasting bun. Perfect bar food, really! So I'd encourage everyone to request the all-veggie sliders if you happen to find yourself at Enid's

Does anyone know of any other restaurants that serve veggie burgers in slider form?


  1. Having worked food service for most of a decade before sitting my ass in an office chair, I have to say that the "no substitutions" thing is not usually something that comes out of thin air.

    There's no need for anyone to be impolite to customers about it. If they have been I'm not defending that.

    However, there are definitely legitimate issues of food preparation and availability. Substitutions, depending on the type of restaurant and cuisine, can very much damage the availability of standard menu items throughout an evening.

  2. Oh, I definitely realize sometimes there are legitimate reasons restaurants cannot change certain menu items.

    But sometimes I really can't imagine a logical reason behind their refusal...
    like Bareburger, which said they cannot not serve the "lamb burger" toppings on a veggie burger for me. Why? I don't know. It's just toppings: cucumber, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, and tzatziki. It shouldn't be any harder for them to put that on top of a veggie patty than it is for them to put the numerous other topping combinations they do allow on the veggie patty. But they told me it's "not available for the veggie burger".

  3. Yeah, without knowing what their pantry is like and how their ordering process goes, I couldn't comment one way or another. Could just be them being snotty, could be they'll run out of lamb burger toppings for the lamb burgers.

    We certainly shan't have that at Jeremy Cooks Whatever the Fuck He Wants...of course that's because there will be only a fixed menu of an evening.

  4. those look awesome, and it's great that they would do a just veggie burger trio. Typically, the times I've been told "no substitutions" is when I had a super rude server. There have been a few times where the server was nice about it, and that's fine, but it just seems like most of the time they just want to be a*holes.
