What We Ordered:
- Veggie Burger
This veggie burger comes from the Caribu TZ Cafe. It was bad. Like Biblical bad. The lettuce was so nasty that I had to pick it off to finish eating it. I only did eat it all because we had walked for 2 hours with another hour to go and I needed sustenance to keep up with 2 kids who were about to have a melt down lest I have one first. Nothing about this burger worked. The bun was all wrong, the toppings were sad, their was only ketchup as a condiment, and the patty was uninspired. But what did I expect from a food trough at the zoo?
Meat: Veggie patty which tasted a lot like the Yves patties you can get in the supermarket. I’m pretty sure it’s a tofu-based patty.
Toppings: This burger comes with shaved lettuce and one sad slice of tomato. The lettuce had an awful taste like it had been in the fridge for too long. I ended up taking off all the lettuce. They had packs of ketchup that I also added on.
Bun: Kaiser bun was too big for the burger and would have tasted better paired with a turkey swiss sandwich
Nothing else comes with this glorious bad boy.
Atmosphere & Staff:
It is line-up cafeteria style in a zoo with fluorescent lighting, lots of tourists, and noisy chatter. It’s as glamorous and uncomfortable as you’re probably picturing it right now.
Don’t bother getting this. But do go to the zoo. It’s a lovely place that supports animal research and rehabilitation.
