‘GQ’ Names ‘The Year’s Best Burger’ … and It’s Vegan

Written by PETA | November 4, 2015

New York City’s East Village got a lot tastier when Superiority Burger moved in. Its famous vegan sandwich is so mind-blowing that it challenges the very definition of the word “burger.” People can rave all they want about its texture and taste, but chef and former punk-rock drummer Brooks Headley won’t divulge its ingredients.

GQ describes the Superiority Burger as a “nutty patty” topped with roasted tomato and iceberg lettuce. The magazine was clearly moved by this divine sandwich, declaring it “the perfectly proportioned Platonic ideal of a burger.”

You can also expect the unexpected at Superiority Burger, as its menu changes on a whim. “We’ve come up with a lot of our specials during little lulls in service …. Everybody runs down to the basement and picks up a project,” Headley explains.
