I wanted to try a homemade Mexican veggie burger recipe, so I took a look around online and found my way to a post by Delicious. It looked good enough and seemed easy to make, so I decided to go for it. I did make a few tweaks to the recipe based on what I had in the cupboard and personal taste, so I will list my version of the recipe below.
I’ve been to TGI Fridays a couple of times, although the last time was a while ago. I don’t know whether they have changed their menu recently, but I certainly remember having a much better meal the first time I went. Whether the food has changed, or whether it was the fault of the particular chefs, I’m not sure – but I expected a bit more from this burger, or “sandwich” as they call it, than I got. To start with, it was brought out first with the wrong fries, and out of a table of eight there were four mistakes when they brought the food out, with another plate arriving very late. Three out of eight is not a good start.
On the VegBurge scale, I give this…
Taste – 5/10
Price – 4/10
Rest of experience – 5/10
A while ago I went to the Smith and Western in Tunbridge Wells and tried their Prairie Meat Free Burger, and recently I went there again to discover that their menu had changed. They now offer you the chance to swap the meat version of any of their burgers for a vegetarian one, which means a lot more options are now available to you. However, the price does not go down for any of the swaps, so in essence you still have to pay meat prices whether you’re eating it or not, which is frustrating. The prairie burger that I reviewed before is no longer available, however, the burgers do still come with coleslaw and a choice of normal fries, curly fries, or wedges as before.
