Best Vegan Burger

SF Weekly names the vegan burger at Plant Café one of the 10 best sandwiches in San Francisco.

On Wednesday, SF Weekly food editor John Birdsall named the Plant Burger at Plant Café Organic one of the 10 best burgers in San Francisco. The burger is made of lentils, mushrooms, cashews, bulgur, and beets and is piled high with tomatoes, lettuce, and avocado on toasted whole wheat bread. Birdsall describes the plant-based burger as a "harmonious pile" of food, and notes that due to the inclusion of beets, the burger is blood red in color. The restaurant, located in San Francisco's Embarcadero neighborhood, is not strictly vegetarian, but it does use organic and local produce in its selection of vegan items.
