Running from mindless zombies who want to eat your tasty flesh? Take refuge at Lovin' Spoonfuls. The undead will shy away from the animal-free entrées here. But that doesn't mean you have to. The vegetarian restaurant serves three delicious types of homemade veggie burgers: the adzuki burger--a patty of adzuki beans, zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, corn, oats and walnuts; the classic burger--a grilled soy patty topped with grilled onions, lettuce, tomato and pickles; and the Route 66 bacon cheeseburger--a grilled soy patty topped with soy bacon and melted vegan cheddar. The Route 66 is one of the best veggie burgers we've eaten. And since the friendly staff members tell us it's the most popular of the three, we're in good company--excluding zombies, of course.
