I was recently in Williamsburg early on a Sunday morning, and thought I’d take the opportunity to try out a new veggie burger. Bliss Grand was nearby, I had never been there before, and their vegan “Two Fisted Lentil Beet Burger” sounded pretty darn appetizing!
The bun was soft, slightly sweet wheat bread. The toppings included a tangy “special sauce” that oozed and dripped out of the burger when I picked it up (not just “two handed”, but many-napkins-required!), as well as lettuce, tomatoes, pickle slices, and red onions.
The patty itself had a nice earthy spice to it - but it was too mushy, I thought it would have been more enjoyable with a crisp outside or some more texture inside. The overall consistency was as smooth as mashed potatoes (although it did hold together quite well, and did not drip out of the bun the way the sauce did!). It was also a bit dry, but at least the plentiful amount of sauce helped compensate for that.
ha, it becomes one-fisted after you eat half of it!
It came with fries, but I was too full to eat more than a couple of them after that burger! The rest of the brunch menu looked amazing, so I definitely want to come back sometime to try some of the other offerings (all vegan).
