A Burger By Any Other Name

I have a theory that you can tell how much a restaurant thinks about its food by the quality of its veggie burger. The item has become the quintessential menu add-on for restaurants that want to show that they "care" about vegetarians.

Restaurants, let me share a tidbit right now: Warming a pre-packaged Gardenburger, slapping it on a bun, and charging $9 for it is not caring for vegetarians. It's caring for vegetarians' friends who want to go to a restaurant and say, "Oh, look, they serve something for you." Meaning: you eat boring meatless crap, and this place serves one boring meatless item.
