I'd be disgusted too if my sister stole my fake handlebar moustache prop and used it as eyebrows.

Who on earth is doing their advertising? They couldn't make any aspect of this look any more unappealing. Who just has a plain burger between two slices of bread anyway?

I assume that's just pair of YouTube bods in their video's thumbnail. I doubt the company had a hand in it. Right with you on the plain burger point though.

But seriously, the patty and bun are the most important parts of a burger and I'll happily lose my weekend over this. 'Messy burgers' are an abomination that typically cover for substandard meat and bread which at any rate detract from the simple joy of a good burger.

Well, yeah, the wheels and the frame are the most important bit of my bike, but I don't want to miss out on the brakes, gears and seat.
Dumping a million things onto a burger, especially blue cheese which I feel like was really popular years ago, is a silly move. However, a bit of sliced lettuce and a thin bit of cheese is going to improve the burger a great deal. Probably, whatever; eat what you want. You're probably going to shout at me and start calling me a post-modernist because everyone on here has lost the plot this week.

The best toppings for a burger are a slice of cheese, a bit of rocket and a few fried mushrooms with a bit of sauce.

Good, because while you're right, you're wrong. They are the most important parts, and I'm not suggesting 'messy burger', but there's a world of difference between a burger and some dry bread, and a burger, a slice of cheese, and a few slices of onion with some ketchup, for example.
Especially if it's a weird vegan burger.

Fixed gear bikes are usually missing 2/3 of those and people seem to like them. I would also argue that bbq sauce is not the mechanical necessity that brakes are.

The crispness of iceberg lettuce is unsurpassable as a burger topping. Rocket is fine in a salad, but on a burger it just turns into a limp, stringy mess.

Well what about the bike chain. You'd lubricate that every so often. And a burger needs some lubritcation too.
|>>|| No. 14489
See there's a wrong'ness to this. A good burger can stand on its own - by all means I'll have a salad to the side because I'm not an animal but anything else and you start detracting from that.
Ketchup especially as it's a sweet. You're not slicing a big tomato and using that because you're a sugar junkie. Why not just put ketchup between two buns and eat that, I bet you'd love it.
Burgers come with their own lubrication. You're cooking fatty meat, not shagging the cow's arse. If you've fucked up on the meat or doing some dry veggie thing then use a little butter.

I bought Stahly tinned vegetarian haggis because it was just under 70p a tin at the time.
It was really nice. The texture wasn't as good as >>14107 but it was a lot more flavoursome. I'd definitely have this again, especially if I can find it for that price.

Today I've tried the family bucket by Absurd Vird, the vegan spin-off from Asburd Bird.
Six vegan chicken tenders (read: deep fried Quorn) as well as two vegan fried chicken burgers (read: deep fried Quorn fillets in a bun with lettuce and tomato, topped with a pitiful amount of barbecue sauce and shitloads of coleslaw). The burger combination didn't exactly work for me and it needed something a little on the punchy side to elevate it, plus the solitary Quorn fillet was a little on the stingy side; it was dwarfed by the rest of the burger.

Can't quite believe I'm saying this - but the best vegan takeaway "chicken" burger I've tried recently is the Vegan Royale from Burger King; way better than the KFC equivalent.
I've also tried the Imposter burger from Nandos which is notable because they use good bread and their sauces, but the pea protein chicken-pretend is a bit weird texture. Burger King are also doing plant-based whoppers, but they're cooked on the same grill as the meat ones, so not vegan.

It works as an occasional change. You wouldn't want to drink it every day, or at least I wouldn't. It's like Dr Pepper in that respect. Nice enough, but just too damn weird.

It's the second best pop after Old Jamaica ginger beer, but neither are particularly fashionable.

Today I've tried Quorn spinach and red pepper slices. I liked them but everyone else in the house thinks they're disgusting. They taste, unsurprisingly, like red pepper and they're quite succulent.
The drawback is that they're ridiculously fragile and it's likely it will break apart when you try to take a slice.

Farmfoods sell Dafgårds Swedish meat-free meatballs. They could do with being a little meatier but they're not too far off Ikea meatballs.

Bought a whole bunch of these jars. They don't quite make a complete-tasting rendang, but if you add a little pinch of extra sugar they get you about 75% there, which is deliciously close and definitely scratches that rendang itch.

Would veggie food work on a barbecue? My favourite burgers are the Linda McCartney mozzarella ones, but so much grease and oil oozes out from them whilst they're cooking it'd probably cause a huge blaze on a barbecue.

Slabs of halloumi are great if you're not full vegan.
Corn on the cob, peppers (bell to hot, according to whim), aubergine (little green round ones or slices of big purple ones), asparagus, mushrooms, tomatoes, all separate or skewered.
Meat's entirely optional (if lovely). Get stuck in.

Did you buy it from Home Bargains? I was endorsing crazy hipster foreign choices at work, and a colleague told me about Star Beer. It's Nigerian, it's incredibly cheap, and it's available from the Home Bargains right by my work. He said he would buy me some.
|>>|| No. 14532
Yes I did. It was one of their star buys, think it was £1.39 for a 600ml bottle. On the back it says it's "Nigeria's number 1 beer" which piqued my interest.

Well how many did you have? It's best to have 5 or 6 to let the taste to grow on you.

If something is the worst beer you've ever tasted why would you drink half a dozen on the off chance it improves?
|>>|| No. 14536
Yes, because it may not be the beer's fault. You just haven't aquainted yourself with it. Just like Guinness, Weissbiers and Brooklyn lager can be disgusting at first, but you push through that into a new realm of acceptance.

Lately I've been having a cup of mint tea after dinner and I must say it really does help with your digestion. Even if I eat crap I don't end up feeling bloated at all. Not cheap for tea mind you but I guess you get what you pay for.

The only time I ever drank mint tea, I had incredibly painful stomach cramps and diarrhoea.

The picture of what I assume is baobab, is making me incredibly uncomfortable for some reason. It's disgusting.
