  • - Yeah, the other burger just looks more.

  • (burps)

  • - Sorry.

  • - Put together.

  • - (laughing) Sorry.

  • - Veggie burgers, veggie burgers, (cheering)

  • - Feast mode hunger squad, we're going to be traveling

  • all over Los Angeles today.

  • - And our mission today is to find

  • the best veggie burger in L.A.

  • - We're going to play Veggie Burger Telephone.

  • - And what happens is we go to one restaurant,

  • we try the veggie burger.

  • - And then ask them where they would go

  • if they weren't eating their own veggie burger.

  • - And then we're going to keep going on,

  • and on and on until we find...

  • - The best one in L.A.

  • - For me, as a vegetarian, it's pretty hard to find

  • a good veggie burger.

  • - I don't think I've ever actually eaten a veggie burger,

  • so this will be interesting.

  • I'm a big meat fan.

  • I don't care what's in a burger,

  • as long as it tastes good I'm down for that.

  • - I need a few more spots to eat veggie burgers at

  • because most of the ladies in Los Angeles are vegan,

  • as we all know.

  • - I am a vegetarian, I am a vegetarian.

  • - We are on our way right now to Cafe Gratitude.

  • We gotta make up a rubric here.

  • What makes a good veggie burger?

  • - Oh, okay first it's not too mushy.

  • It's not real meat, it can't be mushy, firmness.

  • Flavor, obviously.

  • Presentation.

  • - I'm always worried with the veggie burger

  • that I'm not going have a full meal.

  • - Let's do it, let's do it.

  • Oh, God I'm so hungry and I'm stuck, oh sweet Jesus.

  • So, this is our first stop for veggie burgers.

  • Tell us about Cafe Gratitude.

  • - We're all all-organic, all-vegan establishment.

  • We are just kind of a casual, fun place where you can

  • bring anyone from your dog to your grandma.

  • You're going to be having the I Am Magical,

  • which is our double cheeseburger with our black bean

  • and mushroom and all sorts of spices in the patties.

  • - Will it make me full?

  • - Oh, it will definitely make you full.

  • I like to refer to it as the Boyfriend Burger.

  • - [Colin] First off, this burger looks pretty neat.

  • - Patties are maybe a quarter of an inch thick.

  • I'm gonna give it a four on presentation.

  • - [Colin] You know, there's always room for growth.

  • - [Mallory] I like the texture a lot.

  • - Tastes like a salad.

  • - Mine is falling apart.

  • - Steven's eating like a child.

  • - This is not firm.

  • - Firmness is a three for me.

  • - The flavors are good, though.

  • - A whole sprig of rosemary in there, it's good.

  • - Flavor, I'll give it a four.

  • - Bonus, this would fill me up.

  • - Uh, I don't know.

  • - How much do you eat?

  • I would give it a four.

  • - One thing I do know about this sandwich is

  • it is nutritious AF.

  • - [Steven] Look at Colin trying to fit in

  • with the kids, these days.

  • - I think we are eternally grateful to Cafe Gratitude.

  • But it is time to move on.

  • - If you weren't going to eat a veggie burger here,

  • where would you go next?

  • - My go-to is probably Sun Cafe in Studio City.

  • - It's my turn to drive,

  • and I'm going to take us to the Valley.

  • - [Colin] Jordan's from Boston.

  • I know how people from Boston drive.

  • - I'm a perfect driver.

  • - Vegetarians on average fart like 10 times more

  • than meat eaters.

  • - [Jordan] Beans, beans, are good for your heart,

  • the more you eat, the more you fart.

  • - [Steven] Hey, don't run over that girl.

  • - [Jordan] Steven.

  • I will (bleep) kill you.

  • So, Cafe Gratitude sent us here to try your veggie burgers.

  • But first you want to just tell us a little bit

  • about the restaurant?

  • - We make all our own cheese from scratch

  • out of seeds and nuts so everything's super fresh.

  • We have our traditional one which is our raw burger.

  • Then we also have a new one that we just introduced

  • which is a marinated tempeh burger.

  • - I've never had tempeh,

  • so I don't know what I'm about to eat.

  • - I freaking love tempeh.

  • - Cheers, we're going, we're going, we're going.

  • - [Jordan] That's interesting.

  • - Smooth consistency, nice and firm.

  • Whatever it is, this is a soy product

  • and it's a delicious one.

  • - Are you a tempeh fan?

  • - I don't know.

  • - It's like a pretty good burger,

  • but it feels more like a sandwich.

  • All right, let's move onto the raw,

  • which I'm super stoked about.

  • - [Jordan] That's really good.

  • - What's this creamy sauce on the bottom?

  • - It's got kind of a meaty flavor to it,

  • which is interesting.

  • - [Mallory] Did you bring your own napkin?

  • - [Jordan] You know they gave you napkins.

  • - I did.

  • (laughter)

  • - It is firm.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Firmess, five.

  • Fullness, five.

  • Presentation, five.

  • Flavor, five.

  • - You're too generous, you're like Oprah.

  • I would say it's a 4.5.

  • Whoa, actually no, now on second thought it's a five.

  • It definitely holds together.

  • - Yeah, it moves like a burger.

  • - There's a lot of flavors to work through,

  • but like all really great flavors.

  • - Overall, I would bring a date here.

  • Not this one, but a date.

  • - I'm legit so full right now.

  • Like, I don't know how I'm going to do another restaurant.

  • - If you weren't going to eat a veggie burger here,

  • where would you go to eat a veggie burger?

  • - I've heard some good things about Beachwood Cafe.

  • - It's gonna be hard to top this place.

  • - Seriously.

  • - But it's time to go to Beachwood.

  • (Colin yawning)

  • - Ah, dag it.

  • - [Steven] Honestly, I don't know what this place can do

  • that could be better than Sun Cafe.

  • - This spot is definitely like classic veggie diner.

  • - What we're gonna do is we want to order

  • veggie burgers for us.

  • You guys have them here?

  • - Yes, we make our own veggie burgers here.

  • (laughter)

  • - [Steven] This is what I expect

  • a veggie burger to look like.

  • - It smells really good.

  • - [Colin] I would say it's like very classic American fare.

  • - [Mallory] This is the only burger that was open face.

  • - But open face is better.

  • - Yeah, presentation.

  • - You can wait for it to be fresh until you actually eat it.

  • - [Mallory] I'm going to go four on presentation.

  • Do we want to spread the avocado, maybe?

  • - Where's the brown rice?

  • Oh, it's in the patty.

  • - [Mallory] It's in the patty, all right here we go.

  • - Hm, good patty.

  • - It's um, chewy.

  • - It's like a three.

  • - I like 2.5.

  • This is not as firm as I would have wanted it to be.

  • - This will fill me up, this is a full meal.

  • - I'm gonna say five on fullness because it's just like

  • a patty and rice.

  • - I like the flavor, it gives you like a home feeling,

  • like a warm feeling.

  • - It's like the inside of a Chipotle burrito bowl.

  • - It didn't blow my mind.

  • - I'm going three on flavor.

  • - I've got a food baby AF.

  • - (bleep) finish it.

  • - My favorite burger was the raw burger at Sun Cafe.

  • - We ate a lot of good burgers,

  • but that one was off the charts good.

  • - I'm glad that we found places where I can go

  • and also bring a vegetarian.

  • - After today, I think I'm less skeptical of veggie burgers.

  • - I think I've added a few more pretty choice

  • date spots to my repetoire.

  • - For sure.

  • - Feast mode fam, whoo.

  • - They're going to have good poops tonight.

  • We're all going to have it really easy peasy.

  • The fiber just like makes it just go (vocal sound effects).

  • - [Jordan] If we all ate a lot of fiber we'd have easy.

  • - Do you squash (bleep)?

- Yeah, the other burger just looks more.
