Herb Plated: Monty’s Good Burger

Monty’s Good Burger is the perfect option for a great plant-based burger in Los Angeles.

Burgers might be one of America’s go-to options when it comes to eating. These delicious meals are, when perfectly executed, a balanced option that includes protein, veggies, and carbs.

You can, of course, find some that are just decadent layers of flavor and passion, minus the healthy aspect. Monty’s Good Burger strives to create one of the best plant-based burgers. You will fall in love with their excellent burgers, which are meant to be more than a flavorful experience, but one that is more conscious and aware of current needs.

You can find five locations around Southern California. All of which look to provide customers with a clean and environmentally friendly experience. Whenever food this good is meant to be more than a culinary feast, there is no way to go wrong.

About Monty’s Good Burger

Monty’s Good Burger is all about passion and responsibility. Their commitment to the environment and their customer’s health and well-being is something out of this world. Yet, their values align with today’s reality and our world’s current needs.

Close friends gathered around the idea of creating a place where the plant-based concept became an ideology. Monty’s Good Burger was born in SoCal in the summer of 2018 and has served close to three million burgers, fries, tots, and shakes since then. Not only is their focus on excellent food, but responsible consumption, safety, and consistency for all customers and team members.

Their artisanal burgers are made with locally sourced ingredients and seek to make you fall in love with 100% plant-based food. Every customer gets the chance to enjoy a cheeseburger without any guilt attached to the experience.

You will love their products whether you’re an omnivore, carnivore, vegetarian, or vegan. But, most importantly, you will love the social aspects of this business and its commitment to the planet, society, and the environment.

What Is Monty’s Good Burger’s Commitment?

Good food, good burgers, or good fries are not just about the culinary aspects. Instead, their approach encompasses many factors not many consider with food.

Monty’s Good Burger is aware of the need to be knowledgeable and sensible about the source of ingredients.

Their burgers are made with local products, house-made sauce, caramelized onions, and the 100% plant-sourced Impossible™ 2.0 Patty.

To further bring the value up, Monty’s Good Burger promises to only use compostable serving products and many benefits for their teams. What else could you ask for in a gourmet burger joint than environmental and social responsibility?

Nothing beats eating consciously from a company that is aware of the importance of keeping their customer and team happy and safe.

Monty’s Good Burger Adoption Program

One of Monty’s values and goals is to promote adoption.

They commit to this by having dog and cat adoption drives every month. You can find them at Echo Park Lake Rec Center every last Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm.

Monty’s Good Burger Menu

Nothing beats a simple menu. Monty’s Good Burger knows that all it takes to captivate customers is to give them a couple of options of immense quality. Their menu is light and incredibly well curated, including delicious products made in-house and others that come from a handful of conscious allies.

You can try their single or double burger, featuring the Impossible™ 2.0 patty, Follow Your Heart Cheese, a house spread, and all the usual fittings. Fresh, locally sourced tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, and grilled onions between Bosch Bakery potato buns are all it takes to compliment the perfect ‘’good’’ burger.

You can choose to accompany your good burger with julienne fries or tater tots paired with your choice of dipping sauces. You can also order a chopped kale caesar salad that is crisp and aromatic.

For drink options, Monty’s Good Burger has a line of cane sugar-sweetened craft sodas, delicious lemonades, sparkling beverages, and Organic Oatly Oatmilk shakes and floats. The idea is to pair your burger with healthy options that follow the company’s values.

Finalize your meal with your choice of cookie from Rocco’s Sweet Shoppe. There are plenty of options, but I’d go with the Peanut Butter Bliss cookie after a couple of puffs of the fruity and delicious Sherbet strain. Enjoy good food, great locations, and a tasty, responsible user experience.
