Bowl and Victuals-A Double Book Dose on GREAT TASTE

Have you noticed that vegetarian burgers are one of the "in" foods of 2016?  Ever since the opening of Brooks Headley's 

Bowl-Lukas Vogler

Superiority Burger in 2015 (and Pete Wells, New York Times critic, awarding it two stars), it seems like the meatless patty's profile has been growing exponentially.  Many star chefs have jumped on the trend, as noted in The Veggie Burger's Ascent, a recent article written by Erik Piepenburg.  

During last week's road trip I opted for the version offered by the standout burger chain, Five Guys.  It's called a Cheese Veggie Sandwich with a note on the menu that "Veggie Sandwiches do not contain veggie burger patties."  It was actually pretty good for road food-grilled mushrooms, jalapenos, and onions, cheese, pickles, tomato, lettuce, and all the condiments.
