10 Impossible Meat Menu Items That Aren’t Burgers

Three years ago, a taste bud stupefaction of epidemic proportions rocked the country when diners sank their teeth into the Impossible Burger for the first time. A juicy, meat-like textured patty that even… bled!? Fast forward to present day where you can find this plant-based witchcraft on almost every other corner, and the world seems like a brighter place because of it. But did you know that there are a plethora of Impossible Meat dish options in the City of Angels OTHER THAN burgers?! Rea

Impossible Cigars – Crossroads

West Hollywood

The cutest little appetizer you ever did see. Crispy, flaky dough wrapped around Impossible meat shaped like charming cigars. Sport your best pinstripe suit and fedora while you dip them in the tangy almond yogurt dipping sauce and have a little fun playing with your food!

Impossible Taco Salad – Mendocino Farms

Multiple Locations

The classic taco salad revamped to be LA body approved. You’ll feel those wellness vibrations with plant-based Impossible crumbles, creamy cashew ranch dressing, quinoa crunchies, and generous nooch—designed in collaboration with the Impossible Foods team.

Impossible Pizza – Fresh Brothers

Multiple Locations

Truly the king of trailblazing, Fresh Brothers was the first SoCal establishment to offer pizza with Impossible meat. They top their pie with Daiya Mozzarella, crumbled Impossible meat, and whatever topping options your little lamb loving heart desires. You gots choices, son!

Cottage Pie – The Stalking Horse

West LA

A vegan take on a shepherd’s pie, this dish is stuffed to the brim with minced Impossible meat, fresh carrots, onions, green peas, fluffy mashed potatoes and tasty brown gravy, served up in a cheeky cast iron casserole. You’ll be saying “Please sir, I want some more!”

Impossible Meats Tapa (Weekend brunch only) – Ma’am Sir

Silverlake

Dracula ain’t gonna mess with you after this dish. Gnosh on this Filipino dish with the Impossible twist! Made with traditional garlic rice, sliced Impossible meat and atchara (green papaya). Just make sure to ask for no eggs to make it completely animal free.

Pasta Impossible! – Blue Cow Kitchen and Bar

DTLA

A decadent dish to have you FUH-GED-ABOUD all past plebeian pasta dishes in your life. Noodles plus Impossible meat is pretty much the combo that’s been missing from our  mouths. Big ‘ol al dente rigatoni smothered in hearty bolognese sauce made of Impossible meat and roasted tomatoes. You’ll be ignoring your date and saying “how YOU doin’” to your food all night. Plays well with red wine (duh).

Vegan Impossible Enchilada (lunch only) – Tortilla Republic

West Hollywood

Keep that snatched figure with these low-carb Impossible-y flavorful enchiladas! Jicama tortillas wrapped around tinga-style Impossible beef alongside sweet roasted carrots, squash, red onions and bell peppers all smothered with creamy cashew cheese and ranchero sauce topped with that pickle-y onion goodness. The salsa macha on tops got that kind of mouth burn kick at the end that keeps a vegan feeling ALIVE.

Impossible Vegan Tacos – Fred 62

Los Feliz

Fred’s isn’t just for late night drunk eating greasy fries and hating yourself anymore! They gots Impossible tacos, y’all! I’m talking crisp napa cabbage, Fresno chiles, red onions, and parsley atop Impossible ground taco meat with a citrus-y tomatillo avocado twist at the end. Okay, maybe still the perfect late night debauchery munchie.

Loco Moco Bowl – Beelman’s

DTLA

A Hawaiian twist on Impossible meat that’ll have you feelin’ loco! Sambal sauced Impossible ground meat atop a generous bed of purple napa cabbage, Garlic jasmine rice, ponzu, and sweet chili sauce with a sprinkling of bright green scallions. Your tastebuds will be taken on a flavor surfriding adventure!

Impossible Bowl or Impossible Taco – Qdoba

Multiple Locations

For when you wanna customize on the cheap, on the fly, Impossible style! Qdoba flavors up their Impossible crumbles with a savory blend of spices and onions, and let’s you have it in a bowl or in a taco, ‘cause you gots options, son! Choose your own Impossible adventure with toppings like cilantro, red onion, or salsa verde. Test the daredevil in you and specify your spice level from 1 (stay near Mommy) to 4 (Satan’s wrath aka burn your face off).
