It may have a relatively new name, but The Plant Cafe (formerly Lettus) continues to serve up sustainable and delicious food - a lot of it vegan - to Marina folks day and night. We went there last night craving salads, but then I remembered a friend telling me about the greatness of their veggie burger. I went for it and was not disappointed. Plus, it came with a side salad so I still got my greens.
The bright red color comes from the beets in the mix. Other ingredients include cashews, bulgur, lentils, and mushrooms. Topped with grilled onions, crisp lettuce and tomatoes, and a slammin' garlic aioli, it was really great and totally hit the spot. My only issue is that it didn't hold together like a burger. In fact, I opened it up and spread it around a bit, like it was a pate, to cover all the bread. Still, I would eat it again in a heartbeat and it will more than satisfy any burger craving. Of course, The Plant caters to all dietary habits, so both vegans and others (gluten-phobes too!) can share the love... and the yummy food.
