RIP, Vegan Burger. The Mission Won't Be the Same Without You!

Mission Burger, our heart is broken, too! Ever since we tried the vegan burger served at Duc Loi Market (2200 Mission at 18th St.), we've talked it up as one of the best burgers around. Sad to read that the vegan burger is being canceled due to a deep-fryer cross contamination complaint that led to what Mission Burger describes on its Yelp page as a broken heart.
Unfortunately, yes we will cancel it pretty soon because it takes a lot of work to make and was sort of just a labor of love -- love we lost a few weeks ago when people complained about frying a piece of battered fish in the same deep fryer as the vegan patty. Even though that was a one time contamination, we just don't want to make any vegans upset in the future. Maybe we'll bring it back some day when our broken hearts have had a chance to mend a little.

Not to cry over spilled edamame, but the vegan burger was juicy, chock-full of tasty veggies like kale and shiitake/maitake mushrooms, hearty, and flavorful. If and when it comes back, we'll be there.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
