Impossible Burger Lands in Houston
UPDATE: Austin Eater has noted that as of June 23, the Impossible Burger has been added to 11 Hopdoddy locations in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Houston. The burger bar is selling the plant-based patty for $14 with lettuce, tomato, white onions, cheddar and the restaurant’s signature mayonnaise-horseradish honey mustard sauce. The burger can be vegan if ordered on a whole wheat bun without the sauce and cheese.
HoustonPress has announced that the famed Impossible Burger, which we did a review of here, has officially made its way to Houston, Texas. The article notes that the new restaurant additions are the first “outside of a dozen in California and New York, including David Chang’s Momofuku Nishi and Ssam Bar, to serve the cutting-edge burger.”
This is a significant location, considering that Texas is the “biggest per capita consumer of beef in the United States,” and according to the article:
“[The] plant-based thing is a food product that uses 75 percent less water, generates 87 percent fewer greenhouse gases and requires around 95 percent less land than conventional ground beef. For now, health fanatics should be happy — Impossible Burger’s protein content is the same as in a beef burger but without any cholesterol.”
The burger is available at Underbelly for $18, and can be made vegan when ordered without the American cheese and bread. At Hay Merchant, it is made with two patties, and can be made vegan if ordered without the two slices of cheese and bread. Both restaurant are currently “researching vegan buns.”
