Best Thing We Ate Today: Houston's Veggie Burger
Houston's is one of the most surprisingly delicious things we've had this week. It's a mix of rice, black beans, beets and the secret ingredient, prunes, so it has this ground-meat textural quality without being too mushy. It's grilled, topped with the basics (lettuce, tomato, cheese) and served on a bun that's made in-house, another thing we didn't know about the chain. Whatever anyone wants to say about Houston's, it's always consistent, no matter which location you visit. After a quick Google search, not only did we find out that the veggie burger is one of the more popular items on the menu, selling hundreds a week, but there are a lot of people out there who've tried to replicate the recipe. It's that good, even for us strict carnivores.
