Day 1 of my veggie burger adventure took me to Flying Saucer. This is one of my two favorite establishments in the Power & Light District. While it is a recent addition to my repertoire of veggie burger purveyors, it has quickly become a place with which I associate happy times and delectable food and drink. It was at the Flying Saucer that we witnessed history as Barack Obama was elected president.
I always appreciate it when an establishment goes out of their way to provide something yummy for vegans and vegetarians. Most people don't go to a bar for the food, so bar owners really don't need to worry about picky vegetarians -- but they do anyway! And I'm grateful.
The Hippie Burger at Flying Saucer is a yummy little sandwich. The veggie patty has a very satisfying texture and smoky flavor. The jalapeño pesto mayo adds a fun touch and happily blends with the cucumber, lettuce and avocado. The only thing I'll do differently next time I order it will be to leave some of the onion out -- it was live!
