Best of Boston

2021 Best Vegetarian Burger

Moonshine 152

WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE: A burger. WHAT IT REALLY IS: A patty of wild mushrooms and local silken tofu blended with a secret eight-spice blend and fresh thyme, all topped with sharp cheddar. WHY TO GET IT: Chef-owner Asia Mei draws on her experience at the late, great Hamersley’s Bistro to create an inimitable umami-bomb of unctuous flavor.
