Found this yesterday
No posts for a while, so a food old weather spoons burger. Went in for breakfast, but as it was a 11.00 I got swayed towards a chunk of beef, cheese and bacon.
Is that a poached egg on the other plate?
What do burger people think of this:
This 100% vegetarian fast-food chain is ready to take on McDonald's and take over America
I think it's a ruddy great idea and all good for under $5...massively sustainable too.

Yeah, that an avocado and dangerously healthy stuff like that.
If they can pull it off and have it taste OK, it sounds alright. Big if though.
I would need to try it
It's the principal I like.
How do you know its sustainable? I'm all for more choice in fast food but that's a big claim.
Principals are good. It also needs to be a good business model and something the consumers want.
Worth watching the film of the McDonalds story and how their business model started.

Erm cos it's not meat based
Tbh if someone was brave enough to do low cost veggie fast food place I'd rather they take inspiration from things that work really well as vegetarian.
I'd happily pay the cost of McDonald's meal when on the road for some like lentils, rice and chapati.
One stop dahl shop maybe?
Indeed. They could serve things like avocado and almond milk smoothies.
But people want to eat crap like burgers...or fried stuff...thats why so many of them exist imo.
Mostly they also want to eat meat. Be interested to see how well it does outside places like Calafornia.
It would have to be a damn good veggie patty on that burger.....remember most of us on this threads have high burger standards.....I'm a chip snob too...I want the whole caboodle to be top quality (which I believe is possible, even without meat! )
What I absolutely cannot bear is the patty falling apart or the thing being just far too big to actually fit into one's mouth without falling out all over the place. I'm a messy eater as is so I like a nice compact burger.
Im on a canoeing trip at the moment and yesterday stopped to cook some noodles. We'd been rained on and much to my delight we found a food van. Even better it turned out not to be a standard one, my burger was home made with spicy cheese and it was dam good.
Other half had one of the veggie options. Also home made and had beans and other good stuff. I had a taste and definitely one of the better veggie options going. So it can be done I guess, it's just still very rare.
From a food van by the side of a river of all places!
I'll be experimenting with patties next week and I'll feedback.
It ain't vegan but I do make a mean paneer burger.
I like a neat/compact burger too. If stuff is falling out the sides it is annoying
Big patties are an issue of course but a lot of blame is with the buns. I like an old fashioned bap myself, not a fucking brioche or ciabatta nonsense.
This 120oz beef patty seems a bit excessive
Smoky Boys 120oz Burger | Eating Challenges
I love burgers that have more kcals in then I should be eating as much as the next man, but things like seem a bit obscene.
I've also really gone of burgers that are stacked to high. The bread to meat ratio per bite is wrong and even worse the bread goes soggy with grease. In fact I think I'd rather try one of the veggie ones linked to above.
Also £75. I've never spent that much on a meal, but if I could afford to, it wouldnt be on a burger.
Bun too crusty
It's going to need to be to soak up all that grease.
That's ridiculously big, even for an eating challenge.
Fucking nasty is what it is.
