Long-available in the United States, the plant-based Impossible Burger - aka the meatless burger patty that "bleeds" - will finely be widely available in British Columbia. Vancouver-based White Spot and it's more quick-serve styled sibling Triple O's have become the first Canadian chain to bring the veggie burger aboard, and they'll start cooking them up Sept. 19.
Made with soy and potato proteins, the Impossible Burger patty also includes fats from coconut and sunflower oils which make it sizzle on the grill.
The Impossible Burger available at all 62 full-service White Spot locations and 39 quick-service Triple O’s across B.C. and Alberta.
Earlier this month, several prominent Canadian chefs revealed they would be bringing the Impossible Burger to their independent restaurants, among them Richmond's popular meat-centric spot Hog Shack BBQ.
The plant-based burger patty is among the items on the restaurant's new fall menu. Here's how they'll be serving up the Impossible Burger:
Available at White Spot: The Avocado Impossible™ Burger (fresh avocado, pickled onions, crisp lettuce, vine-ripened tomatoes, jalapeño ranch), served with a choice of Caesar salad, The Spot’s Salad, or creamy coleslaw and ‘endless’ Kennebec fries.
Available at Triple O’s: The Original Impossible™ Burger (crisp lettuce, vine-ripened tomatoes, secret Triple ‘O’ Sauce & signature pickle on top). Guests can combo up their burger with a selection of sides & beverages.
Additionally, guests can also substitute the Impossible patty into any burger on the menu at White Spot and Triple O’s locations.
For White Spot customers who are strictly plant-based, you'll need to make some substitutions in order to make your burger fully vegan.
Previously, White Spot carried the Beyond Meat burger, the popular plant-based patty that many other Canadian chains and independent restaurants have been using for the past couple of years. As the brand has adopted the Impossible Burger, they will no longer offer the Beyond Meat patty.
Diners keen to try the Impossible Burger may want to hit up their favourite White Spot or Triple O's location Sept. 19-20, when the restaurants are offering a fundraising promo. The restaurants will donate $2 from every Impossible Burger sold over the two days to Variety – the Children’s Charity, a charitable partner since 1966.
