Great Sacramento Vegan Burger Battle — Hook & Ladder

I was concerned going into Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co. for lunch today. Before the start of the Great Sacramento Vegan Burger Battle, the Impossible Burger at Hook & Ladder was my very favorite burger in town. The Jule’s cheese sauce, sautéed mushrooms, and especially the whole grain mustard really made that burger, and I seemed to be in there …

Oh, my goodness, I just had such a good burger at VEG!

Great Sacramento Vegan Burger Battle — Crocker Cafe

On my to-do list for today was to visit one of the restaurants serving a Portobello burger for the Great Sacramento Vegan Burger Battle. The Crocker Café, inside the Crocker Art Museum, seemed like a good bet, especially since I’d really enjoyed the smoked Portobello mushroom slices on their tree-hugger BLT when I was there last week. Lunch at the …

Another day, another Impossible Burger! For today’s Great Sacramento Vegan Burger Battle meal, Phil and I had lunch at the Patriot in Carmichael, where they are serving two different versions of the Impossible Burger.

Golden Road Brewing

I had lunch a few days ago at Golden Road Brewing, which just opened in Midtown on May 10th. It’s been panned by local beer aficionados because it’s a corporate brewery owned by Budweiser in a city that prides itself on its many locally-brewed craft beers. I wasn’t there for the beer, however. I was there for the vegan food, …
