YOU GUYS. I had lunch at The Plant Cafe at the Embarcadero today and per usual, it was the mickey fickey bomb. But that’s not the weird part. THE WEIRD PART IS THIS: I get home and look what Fancy Nancy sent me! A motherflipping recipe for THE PLANT BURGER.
If you’ve never experienced the magic of The Plant Burger, you are a sad soul. Make this tonight because I will also be making it and we can be internet besties OMG YES. Also, seriously, this is the best thing in the universe and even my meat-eating dad who would kill a piglet with his bare teeth just to watch him die (hi dad!) loves this thing. For serious DO IT.

The Plant Cafe has happy hour at their new location in Pier 3 from 4 to 7 p.m. (don’t quote me on these hours because i have a hella bad memory…just use them as a loose guideline. A jumping-off point, if you will) during which time you can procure three slider (!!!) versions of their (FAMOUS AND DELICIOUS AND FILLED WITH BEETS AND LENTILS AND MUSHROOMS AND CASHEWS AND BULGUR WHEAT AND IT SOUNDS ALL HEALTHY AND UNAPPETIZING BUT YOU’RE WRONG IT IS AMAZING) Plant Burger to enjoy for $10. Get this along with some local microbrew and vegan patatas bravas and your shit is MADE, you fancy bitch. Now GO, it’s almost 4 and (I think it might be) that’s when it starts!
Also, make sure to ask that the burgers be on vegan buns! Good lord, a vegan’s work is never done.
