I tried the impossible burger at bareburger in Atlanta on Friday and it was everything and then some. Before becoming vegan I was definitely a burger girl. I craved them like people crave soda. I had tried the beyond burger but had yet to try the famous impassible burger. And let me just tell you if you’re a vegan and holding back from trying it you’re missing out.
I’ve heard people say it’s too meaty. Too meat texture like. And I know it’s testing methods are controversial in the vegan community. But I’m all for the greater good if vegan innovators can get more meat eaters to try vegan foods I’m for it.
The burger did taste like a real burger or from what I remember the texture was real burger like. It was good. It was juicy. I liked the texture. I liked the flavor. I did the build your own burger at Bareburger and got 1 impossible patty, a brioche bun (which wasn’t vegan cause they were hot of sprouted buns and I wanted my first impossible burger experience to be with a bun) vegan cheese, vegan mayo, sweet pickles, organic ketchup, mustard, lettuce, and guacamole. It was divine. I don’t really know how to explain the flavor besides it tasted like a burger would taste – the one thing that kept me from freaking out about how burger like it was – was that the patty didn’t hold together as well as a burger patty. It did fall apart at the end with all my toppings and burger falling out the bun but it was messy in a fun way.
Bareburger is a rather new place in Atlanta and it was cute I liked the decor. It was like hip with bears in suits paintings on the walls.
My daughter got a “cubby” meal which for her was a grilled cheese, fries, apple slices and a fruit punch juice box. She loved it. I didn’t think she would like the sweet potato, kale, and wild rice patty which was the other non meat option for kid meals. My daughter is still picky and won’t eat veggies so I went with what I knew she would eat. I’m always iffy about if I should get a 2 year old an almost $10 meal and tbh if we go back to Bareburger I’ll probably just get her fries and maybe bring her a grilled cheese from home (lol). Bareburger also offers vegan milkshakes and I tried the velvis which was coconut ice cream, banana, peanut butter, chocolate sauce, and hemp milk. It was so good. Creamy but not too sweet and the perfect ending to my impossible burger.
The one downside to Bareburger was the small quantity of fries honestly Sage got maybe 7 fries with her meal and I had a tiny rectangular tray of them. But I guess if we wanted more we could’ve ordered more. Other than that I did like Bareburger and I loved the impossible burger and will definitely eat it again. I’ve seen on their Instagram that their patties should be in stores come 2019 which I’m all here for so I can just enjoy them at home.
