On Tuesday night, K and I hit Gasometer to try a couple more of their veg options. I went for the super-cute vegan chorizo burger ($15) - it arrives crowned with a pickled onion on a stick, in a basket with chips and a cucumber pickle and squeezy ketchup and mustard on the side. These are the same to-die-for steak fries I ordered for my first Gasometer dinner, and we certainly didn't let any go to waste.
The burger is outfitted right - the bun, lettuce, roasted peppers and chimichurri aioli are rocking the support roles. Toby has declared this the best vegan patty he's ever had, but unfortunately I can't say the same - mine was a bit mushy and squished out the sides of the bun with every bite. And I wasn't tasting spiciness or smokiness. It wasn't a bad burger, it just wasn't evoking chorizo for me at all.
I would consider revisiting the Gasometer's burger but for now I'll continue to roam the rest of their menu (and graze on the chips whenever possible!).
