One bite of Burger Tap & Shake’s massive, crunchy Haight-Ashbury falafel burger, and all mushy veggie burgers are forgotten. Its crispy exterior might not be much to look at, but the patty is creamy and bright green on the inside, and nicely complemented by tangy pickled vegetables and cilantro raita sauce. Plus, it passes a crucial veggie burger test: The falafel patty is sturdy enough to hold together without crumbling. That’s not to say this is a neat burger to eat. The feta is so bountiful, good luck getting it to stay tucked inside the burger’s buttered, toasted bun.
