Cinnamon Snail – New York, NY
While its name is a bit difficult to pronounce, “The Gouchujong Burger,” that’s about the only thing I can say bad about it. This vegetarian badass is so damn impressive it almost doesn’t even deserve the “veggie” qualifier, because I swear, one bite and you will never even think to ask yourself, “where’s the beef?”
They start with a hearty mixture of grains and beans and vegetables and put together what is probably the most substantial patty I’ve ever come across in the land of vegan. Then, they top it with some seriously spicy kimchi and place it on a multigrain bun so boss that it almost acts like an extension of the burger itself. I’m not messing around. This is one veggie burger you don’t want to fuck with. Bring your appetite or bring a doggie bag.
