I know the suspense is killing you, so let’s get this out of the way–the veggie burger at Superiority Burger does not live up to its name. Not even close. It’s definitely not superior in size. When we took it out of the wrapper, I felt like I was looking at a mini slider, not a burger. A few bites and the whole thing was gone. It’s also not superior to other top veggie burgers in the city. That prize would go to the veggie burger at By Chloe, a creation so good that I would even choose it over a real burger in some cases. The mushy patty at Superiority Burger with the texture of raw meatloaf? I would pass on that.
And what I found funniest is that it’s not even superior to things on its own menu. Those honors would go to the Sloppy Dave, which was a fantastic homage, and, might I add, way superior to, the cafeteria sandwiches of our youth. I guess it’s too late for a name change.
