The idea came, as many wonderful ideas do, from the Emily. We were enjoying a late night meal at ChefBURGER. I was talking about how much I love veggie burgers and how many good places there are in Kansas City for veggie-burger-lovers like me. Then we started talking about birthdays, and how my birthday was coming up. One thought led to another, and before we ate the last garlic parsley french fry, the idea for this blog was born.
When I first became a vegetarian, many years ago in Mexico, my mom used to make eggplant burgers for me and regular burgers for the rest of the family. That was before I even knew such a thing as a veggie burger existed. It was also the first time I realized that a burger without the meat could be just as much fun! Surprisingly enough, my love of veggie burgers has found a more than suitable home here in Cowtown.
I've been compiling a list of local restaurants that offer veggie burgers and putting together a calendar for this culinary adventure. A couple of the restaurants are vegan and/or vegetarian, but the majority are not -- I love finding veggie burgers hidden in the most unexpected menus! In the next 31 days, I will be visiting some of my favorite spots, but I'll also be trying new places for the first time. I'm also hoping to get recommendations from people like you.
