Impossible Burger made waves in the foodie scene when it launched Impossible Meat temporarily at Beef & Liberty and Little Bao this past spring. But what’s happened to the ingenious plant-based meat substitute — that looks and tastes as close to the real thing as you can get — now that the buzz has died down?
Well, you can still order the Impossible Thai Burger ($135, with an array of Thai herbs ) at Beef & Liberty branches. Other Impossible Burgers you can enjoy include American fine-dine Bizou‘s ($158, with cheddar cheese and tartar sauce on a brioche bun) and Dear Lilly‘s ($168, with spicy mayo and fries) takes.
If it’s starters or shared plates you’re looking for, Dining Concepts establishment Alto has an Impossible Beef Picadillo ($128, with spinach, lime and cumin) on the menu. There’s also the Impossible patty ($88, with cumin, Chinese mustard greens and egg yolk dip) at contemporary Chinese restaurant Happy Paradise.
Impossible meat isn’t limited to just upscale restaurants, however. Deli takeout joint Urban Bakery recently launched its Impossible Couscous, and you can even order a burrito incorporating Impossible meat at Mexican fast food hotspot Cali Mex.
