Guess where it’s from? Hillstone. As in formerly Houstons? Really? The best veggie burger in all of NYC is from a giant chain? Hmm. I will say that I’m a pretty big fan of the burger at R+D Kitchen (their sister restaurant), but I’ve had the one from Houstons years ago and I didn’t love. Maybe the recipe has changed? I have a hard time getting behind a restaurant that servers sushi and burgers together.
I’ve yet to try the Umami Burger, burger. Must get there, soon. And they write highly of the burger at Cru in Silverlake, which I clearly haven’t been to because it takes me 5 freeways to get there. But maybe we will start exploring. The Counter and M Cafe both make pretty delicious versions too.
More importantly, I’d love to have my own burger recipe at the ready. Last summer I was on a mission to perfecting my quinoa burger recipe. I got close, but frankly got sick of eating them all the time. I’ve been meaning to try Heidi’s latest version. Maybe I will start there.
