I had recently heard of Organix via an Instagram post from Vegan Fat Kid. The burgers looked amazing, so I made a mental note to try it sometime soon. Eric and I went to see his mom in Echo Park and stopped in Eagle Rock to pick up some Organix to go. It’s a seriously tiny restaurant in a small market, so we picked up a few things to try and some nacho cheeze sauce I had been craving.
I ordered the Castro burger, described as, “our Mildly Spicy Signature Burger made from Butternut Squash, Black Beans, Quinoa, Pumpkin Seeds, Oats and many herbs and spices, spicy jalapeno cheese, Grilled Onions and our signature house made Chipotle Aoli, Lettuce and Tomato on a wheat bun.” It was a little messy, but very good. I loved how the elements in the burger worked together. The spiciness and cheesiness were really my favorite parts.
Eric ordered the Southern Belle, “Battered and Panko Fried Vegan Chicken Patty, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy on a Potato Bun.” I stole a bite and found it really tasty. He loved it – mashed potatoes, gravy, this was right up his alley!
The fries were a little soggy due to the 20 minute drive from the restaurant to my in-laws, but were seasoned well.
We also got some zucchini fries…
Overall, it was a really tasty meal and the staff (I think it was the owner, actually) was really friendly. I will definitely be back.
