Best Veggie Burger (2013)
Given the number of times we've lifted the bun from our veggie burger only to find a dry, beige hockey puck underneath, it's no wonder we've come to expect them to be less flavorful than their carnivorous counterparts. But they can be just as robust and savory — as demonstrated by the Biltmore area's Hillstone restaurant. No faux-meat here; this patty is thick, moist, a little sweet, and packed with a slew of finely chopped veggies for color, texture, and taste. Add to that perfect pairings of a sweet soy glaze, melted Jack cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pickles layered between a soft bun and you've got more gastronomic delight than many a meat-minded creation. Delicious.
