I bet you never thought you would hear that phrase right? We do hear and say, “Eat your veggies,” “Sit down” and “Chew with your mouth shut” but who thought that you would hear “Eat your veggies at The Counter.” I’ll surprise you some more, these veggies can be eaten at The Counter Custom Built Burgers, which is not just another “burger joint” but more like a heaven for a burger gourmand.
The Counter® Custom Built Burgers is known for its premium burgers and build-your-own burger menu with over 300,000 different possible combinations, choosing from four proteins, 12 cheeses, 33 toppings, 21 unique sauces and four types of buns. Did I mention that you can choose from all natural, hormone and antibiotic free, humanely raised and handled Angus beef, chicken, turkey or house-made veggie for your protein?
To kick off Vegetarian Awareness month The Counter is offering complimentary mini veggie burgers on October 1, 2011, World Vegetarian Day.
It’s just one day though! On Oct. 1, 2011, The Counter will offer a mini veggie burger with provolone, red pepper and Dijon balsamic dressing to all guests on the house with any burger purchase. Available at all U.S. locations, except the Miami airport.
“The Counter’s veggie burger receives rave reviews from both vegetarians and carnivores alike,” said The Counter Executive Chef Marc Boussarie. “World Vegetarian Day and our Veg Out program gives everyone the opportunity to try our veggie burger and taste for themselves why it is so popular.”
Selected as one of the best veggie burgers by The Washington Post and Chicago Tribune, The Counter’s hand-formed veggie patty is composed of brown rice, spinach, panko bread crumbs, mushrooms, onions, corn, black beans, zucchini, red bell peppers and carrots. The patty is made from scratch in-house and is vegan-friendly as all non-animal ingredients are cooked and stored separately.
Don’t worry if you can’t “vege” for just one day, because the Counter also offers pre-designed burgers from the Signature Burgers and Signature Burgers in a Bowl menus.
