q. can you recommend a good veggie burger in [specific borough or neighborhood]?
a. I tag each restaurant review with the borough and neighborhood that the restaurant is located in, so please refer to the tags in the sidebar, or see them all sorted by category here.
q. I want to try a store-bought burger that you reviewed, where can I find it for sale in my local area?
a. I do not have insider information as to manufacturing and distribution processes of veggie burger companies, most of the time I have never even spoken to anyone from these companies. I try to post links to company websites whenever possible, and those websites should have contact information that will connect you to someone who can answer your question.
q. Can you send me the recipe for one of the burgers you ate at a specific restaurant?
a. Sorry, I am not employed by or associated with any of the restaurants I review, so I do not know what recipes they use, nor do I know if they are willing to provide their recipes to customers. I do list contact information for each restaurant at the bottom of the review, so feel free to contact them yourself.
q. are you 100% certain that the burgers that you tag as "vegan" are really, truly 100% vegan?
a. I am listing this information as it is given to me by the restaurant employees. If I have any reason to doubt something they say, I will openly note that in my reviews. However, I always encourage asking the restaurant again yourself before placing the order, as ingredients used in the burger, or cooking method, type of bun used, etc. may have changed since the time at which I reviewed the burger anyway. When I am doing these reviews, I do not personally go into the kitchen to see if the burger is cooked on a separate grill, or to make sure no one is misinformed about the ingredients. So if that is important to you, please be sure to do your own investigation - and please let me know if you find out something different than what I was told!
q. are you a vegetarian or vegan?
a. I am a vegetarian. Although I often try to avoid dairy products for health reasons, I still eat eggs.
q. where did the name "YumVeggieBurger" come from?
a. my amazing friend Jeremy.
