Hip to be Veg

So I’ve decided to partake in Meatless March this year, which means having to steer clear of all my favorite, delicious dead animals for 31 whole days! But on the bright side, it allows me to share with you some of the great veggie burgers that Philadelphia has to offer.

I decided my first stop this month would be HipCityVeg. It’s by no means some snobby, pretentious, hipster vegan place; it has lots of great, healthy foods even for us meat-eaters (Their Arugula Taco Salad is amazing!). I opted for the Ziggy Burger, which is their classic veggie burger topped with smoked Tempeh (kind of like fake bacon) and a special sauce.

It came on a soft, whole grain bun and kind of tasted like a veggie Big Mac. All the vegetables were fresh, crisp and delicious. I also really liked the smoked Tempeh because it gave the burger a little extra spice instead of just being a boring non-meat burger (plus, you could always fantasize that it’s real bacon). The patty itself tastes like a Boca Burger, so at least the flavor profile was familiar territory for me, but it would have been nice to see perhaps a house-made black bean burger, or a corn and rice patty similar to Elevation Burger’s Veggie option. Otherwise, it was pretty great. I would definitely eat one of these again sometime. It satisfied me like a meat burger, but without making me feel sluggish or stuffed afterwards.

FYI – I won’t be doing individual ratings for the veggie burgers, but at the end of the month I’ll do a recap and let you guys know which one was my favorite, so tell your herbivore friends to check us out!
