The Beyond Burger Taste Test: A Vegan Burger That Tastes Like Meat. One of my favorite things to do is introduce vegan food to people for the first time. Many of my friends still enjoy having meat. The thought of a having vegan burger doesn’t sound very appetizing to them. That always changes when I have then try the Beyond Burger by Beyond Meat.
This was the case when my friend Austin joined my for lunch recently at Healthy Junk. They recently started offering the Beyond Burger on their menu. Austin was willing to give it a try and see how much this Beyond Burger actually tasted like a traditional burger. Healthy Junk was serving up 4 ounce Beyond Burgers and Austin thought that seemed a little small and asked for a double burger.
After a few bites into the burger, Austin realized a few things. First, the double burger is a huge burger! Ordering one 4 ounce burger may have been enough, but regardless, it’s time for Austin to dive into this burger. He also discovered that he definitely needed some more napkins while eating this hug burger!
Second, the burger actually tasted like a traditional burger. He initially thought that a vegan burger would taste like more like soy. So this Beyond Burger really surprised him. Even stating that it would be easy to serve the Beyond Burger at a barbecue and people wouldn’t even know it’s a vegan burger.
Lastly, he didn’t even know the cheese on the Beyond Burger was vegan. He made a comment about the cheese afterwards and he reminded him that the cheese was vegan and didn’t contain any dairy. He was blown away and didn’t realize how good vegan food can taste.
Overall, Austin really enjoyed the Beyond Burger. His first trip to a vegan restaurant was a success. He’s looking forward to heading back to Healthy Junk and ordering the vegan nachos!
