Same here. I also had to actually pick up a phone last week and call to get a screenshot of a menu emailed to me. Having run a restaurant for so long, you would think they’d be a little more on the ball.
The thin crispy edges is actually the best way to cook the impossible burger or the beyond burger (which is getting easier to find to make at home). The center stays a softer texture, but you don’t want a too thick patty. Can’t say how close it is to a rare burger since it’s been decades since i had a beef burger.
I have some omni friends who usually buy $$ grass fed organic blahblah meats and they like that the beyond burger is another option that costs less than the butcher they go to. Incidentally the beyond meat chicken strips are absolutely worthwhile
I don’t think the impossible burger is available at retail, just restaurants
after my Bagelsaurus fail, I needed to find somewhere in Harvard Sq to score a quick breakfast, so I went to Clover because it’s close to my work and I actually wanted to try the impossible sausage and egg breakfast thing they have, even though I’m pretty lukewarm on Clover.
Overall it wasn’t bad, though with tax it’s almost ten bucks so it’s a mediocre value. The impossible meat “sausage” patty was pretty good, with decent texture and was flavored well. It did mimic a sausage patty to a large extent and worked right in the context of the sandwich. I mostly liked the way the egg was cooked and the Vermont cheese on it had a pleasing sharpness.
I was less enamored of the pita because a) I think pita is kind of a poor breakfast sandwich medium and b) it was really extremely dry and the egg yolk wasn’t runny enough to make up for it. I know some people like the Clover pitas, but I gotta say that I am mostly not a fan and here I felt like it let down the whole sandwich. The ingredients here were totally fine and I would like to explore more versions of impossible meat, but on the whole if the fake sausage and egg were on a decent English muffin, this sandwich would have been a lot better.
I missed this thread the first round, but Little Donkey has an impossible burger on their lunchtime/mid-afternoon snack menu. It’s a pretty good burger, and I found it tasted, and texture-wise like meat. Little Donkey’s version is a thinner patty, similar to a Smash-burger style.
