Time for a Change: Johnny Rockets Vegetarian Menu Revamp!
First, let me say that I am not a vegetarian, but that doesn’t stop me from trying out new foods. I’ve had 1 veggie burger and that’s because my sister made me try it. Well, it was different. It was different in the sense that it was something new for my palate. The texture, taste, and look was something that I’ve never had before. It took some getting used to as I continued to eat my burger and by the time I was done, I was well pleased with it. Would I eat it again? Well, I think it depends on how it’s made. When it comes to burgers, Johnny Rockets is certainly an influencer in all things burger; meatless or not.
The classic americana venue wants to welcome all of you to their restaurants. Meat lovers and vegetarians alike. They have a meat-free burger called The Streamliner. It’s their award winning meat-free hamburger that features Boca® Burger, grilled onions, shredded lettuce, fresh tomato, pickles & mustard. It’s got all the fixings which make the overall experience a good one for those who don’t eat meat. But the restaurant wants to change the menu for the better. Johnny Rockets has appointed Calvin Harris to the newly created position of director of culinary innovation and he’s ready to take this menu to another level.
I went to a food tasting, in which we got a chance to taste 5 variations of the classic veggie burger. The whole experience was pretty eye-opening. The 5 nameless patties had their own distinct taste. Some had ingredients I recognized, while others were a little out there, if you know what I mean. One particular pattie stood out from the rest.
It had all sorts of tasty veggies, like corn, peas and had an eggy taste to it, which had a better consistency for my palate. As you can see, I was able to see it as a burger. While I wasn’t able to taste it as a burger, it looked delicious.
Are you a vegetarian? What do you like in your meatless burgers?
