When’s the last time you had a great veggie burger? Chances are it hasn’t happened in a while! If you share my mission of finding great meatless meals, you may have noticed there is a slight deficit… especially in restaurants that have more carnivorous themes. However, I am happy to report that Zinburger recently broke the mold, and delivered a seriously awesome veggie burger!
If you haven’t heard of Zinburger yet it may be because they are new to the East coast. Our very pleasant and knowledgeable server informed us that Zinburger is a West coast based company, and the Clifton, NJ location I was dining at was the first one on the east coast. Don’t fret though, because Paramus and Cherry Hill locations will be opening soon! Zinburger is a self proclaimed “wine and burger bar”, offering a broad spectrum of both. The full bar includes 18 wines by the glass and 17 beer selections, 8 of which are on tap. The menu contains no shortage of burger offerings, including a build your own burger option. There are also a variety of fry options available, some salads, and shakes to tempt your sweet tooth.
I started my Zinburger experience with a trip to their cocktail menu, and I chose the Skinny Margarita. Made with Sauza Silver Tequila, Triple Sec, orange juice, agave nectar, and lime juice, it provided a great blend of sweet and sour flavors. You wouldn’t know it was “skinny” if it didn’t say so on the menu!
I decided on Clint’s “Almost Famous” Veggie Burger, for a very affordable $9. The veggie burger was served with smoked mozzarella, avocado, pea shoots, and mayo. Another win for Zinburger – this item can be ordered vegan! The burger had a soft texture and didn’t resemble a typical “patty”. It was loaded with flavor, and the avocado and shoots just made it that much more delicious.
In my opinion, every good burger needs a side of fries, so I ordered personal favorite – Sweet Potato Fries for $5. Zinburger serves their sweet potato fries with a yogurt dipping sauce which was a yummy alternative to ketchup!
Make sure you stop by Zinburger soon and let us know what you think! And don’t forget to keep your eyes open for locations opening in Paramus and Cherry Hill soon!
