Best Plant-Based Burger: The Bistro Burger at Verdine

The Bistro Burger at Verdine is the real deal Charles McNeil when it comes to feel-good, plant-based burgers. The patty is made from lentils, walnuts and mushrooms, and is the perfect combination of each. It doesn’t stop there. Caramelized onions, red pepper aioli, and cashew “chevre” are generously portioned making for saucy, flavor bomb bites. After being satisfied from the Bistro Burger at Verdine, it’s like, who even likes cow meat anyway?!?

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
