The impossible burger is finally here in Canada! I have been wanting to try this burger for a long time and always wondered why it was taking so long. But alas Impossible Foods has made it to select restaurants around Canada.
Where can you get your hands on the Impossible Burger Toronto?
There aren’t that many places as of yet but I imagine that will change quickly. As of the right now restaurant with the most locations is The Burger’s Priest. It was my first time visiting a BP and it was a good experience overall. They state on their website that they make their vegan burger on a separate grill than the meat ones which is amazing. Mine didn’t come with cheese but it came with a very nice vegan sauce. Besides BP, here is the full list of locations where you can get one:

Is the Impossible Burger Better than Beyond?
This is a tough question to answer because it’s so subjective but I will say this: it is weird. The impossible is weird in the sense that it is so close to the taste of meat. It has been quite some time since I’ve had any meat products so maybe my memory is off but it really does seem to be the same. This might turn off some people because when I took my first bite I had to take a second look at the receipt to make sure they didn’t screw up the order. It’s so close in taste and look that you really just have to trust who’s making it. I find with beyond and every other vegan burger I’ve had I can tell that it’s not meat. The beyond is very close but this is the first time I could not tell at all.
What’s it Made of?
From the Impossible Food’s site it states that each burger contains 19g of protein and 0g of cholesterol. It contains 14g of fat, 9g of carbs and 370g of sodium. Here is the full ingredient list:
Water, Soy Protein Concentrate, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavors, 2% Or Less Of: Potato Protein, Methylcellulose, Yeast Extract, Cultured Dextrose, Food Starch Modified, Soy Leghemoglobin, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (Antioxidant), Soy Protein Isolate, Vitamins and Minerals (Zinc Gluconate, Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1), Niacin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Vitamin B12).
Things are changing fast in the vegan world and this is definitely a milestone in my opinion. Have you tried the Impossible Burger yet? What did you think, is it better than the Beyond? Leave a comment below and let us know.
