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.

After being satisfied from the Bistro Burger at Verdine, it’s like, who even likes cow meat anyway?!?
