Inn by the Sea debuts Impossible Burgers
Inn by the Sea debuts ImpossibleÂ® Burgers & the future of food!
Sea Glass Chef Andrew Chadwick exclusively introduces the popular plant based burger to Maine that smells, looks, feels -and most importantly- tastes like meat.
This Tuesday Portland area residents can be the first in the state to bite into the now famous â€˜bleedingâ€™ ImpossibleÂ® veggie burger by visiting Inn by the Sea. The uber popular plant based patty, which creates long wait lines when served in trendy restaurants in cities like LA & New York, Â will Â be available for the first time in Maine, exclusively at Sea Glass restaurant at Inn by the Sea, starting Â September 26th.
So, whereâ€™s the beef? Â Well thatâ€™s the point, there isnâ€™t any.Â According to Impossible FoodsÂ® it tastes, smells, feels, looks and grills up like meat- even bleeds like a traditional burger - but the patty is actually vegan and made from plants; mostly wheat, coconut oil, potatoes, and heme. The meaty taste, texture and ability to â€˜bleedâ€™ all come from heme, an ingredient derived from soybean roots.
The company states â€œ..the Impossible Burger, uses about 75% less water, generates about 87% fewer greenhouse gases and requires around 95% less land than conventional ground beef from cows. It's produced without hormones, antibiotics, cholesterol or artificial flavors.â€
Well fine, especially for the tree huggers among us- but letâ€™s get to the meat of the thing- how does it actually taste? Is it a viable substitute for carnivores and meat lovers who might like to move toward a healthier, more ethical lifestyle? Or vegans who miss meat? Given all the rave reviews it sounds as if ImpossibleÂ® is a winner- but youâ€™ll have to be the final judge.
Chef Andrew Chadwick will be serving up vegan ImpossibleÂ® Burgers in Sea Glass exclusively starting Tuesday, September 26th. So come in and be the first to give them a try. Weâ€™d love to know what you think. And remember to give yourself a pat on the back while enjoying your burger- according to the company youâ€™ll be saving the equivalent of 10 minutes of showering, 18 minutes of driving, and 75 square feet of land. Good for you!
