The Best Thing I Ate Today: The Big Macro, M Café De Chaya

Riddle me this: How, from a simple base of oatmeal, brown rice and tofu, to which they add diced onions and shitake mushrooms, finely shredded carrots and zucchini, soy sauce, thyme and oregano, did M Cafe manage to make angels sing on a plate?

I dunno, but they did!

Between the pillowy dome of a lightly toasted bun smeared with decadent vegan thousand island dressing, you’re greeted by the crisp crunch of romaine lettuce, thinly sliced red onions, pickles and tomato, and a fluff of alfalfa sprouts all resting atop a hearty patty completed by slowly melting vegan cheese. It’s a majestic handful and mouthful.

By the time you’ve reached your last pickle-y, cheese-y, dressing-y, super satisfying bite, don’t be surprised if you find yourself contemplating a second round of the same. Addictive beyond measure, this macrobiotic vegan burger gives other burgers a new standard to reach. And it’s a high one.
