Where to Eat: Very Vibrant Veggie Burgers @ O! Burger (CLOSED)

One bite into an O!veggie burger and you will see the light. You will instantly understand how a veggie patty was intended to taste. You will realize that for all these years, that bland, mushy gunk you’ve been eating has been a poor imitation of the real deal: a patty with corn, spinach and other scrumptious vegetables that you can see and taste.

That’s precisely the goal of O! Burger: to bring much-needed freshness into the grey, mundane fast-food industry. Priding itself as Los Angeles’ first organic fast-food joint, it specializes in making burgers, hot dogs and other American classics (like chili) that have no food coloring, steroids or other modifications. In fact, co-owner Andy Soboil is more than ecstatic to discuss how healthy those French fries you’re ordering are. Even if that order includes a dose of organic ketchup.

With fries come burgers — veggie, beef or turkey — that are stacked so high with cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles and cheese that they look as if they’ll threaten to topple over at any second. A variety of organic beverages, like the O!vegan shake made with oat milk or one of the kombucha teas, will quench anyone's thirst.

Next time you’re in the West Hollywood area, you know where to stop for a quick — and healthy — bite to eat!
