It was a Saturday afternoon, and I was hungry! I was both hungry and, because I have been partaking in a little retail therapy over the past few weeks, a bit economically challenged. Before checking my bank account earlier that morning, I had great plans of visiting this upscale Mexican restaurant and then sharing my great meat-free findings. However, upscale anything just did not fit into my budget. So, I had to downgrade my lunch plans. Not wanting to use up too much gas and with my new $15 or under budget, I decided to finally try a restaurant that was probably no more than 10 minutes away. I was a bit skeptical until the amazing smells floating from Ocoee’s That One Spot Burgers hit my nose.
That One Spot is in a definite “can miss” location. Although situated in a shopping center that sits right on West Colonial Drive, the burger place is in the far corner of the shopping center facing no where near the busy road. Thankfully, my bank is only a few doors down, so I’ve been passing by the place for some time now. It took me so long to try That One Spot because I wasn’t quite sure how good the food could possibly be. One thing that was for sure was that there always seemed to be a lot of people there. Fast forward to my economically challenged yet very hungry weekend, and there I was standing in the burger place and ordering what would become my very first experience at trying a spinach burger.
The menu offers two vegetarian burger options: 1. The Greek Veggie Burger and 2. The Black Bean Burger. Although the Black Bean Burger had some pretty nice toppings like avocado and thai chili sauce, I wanted something a bit more different. That’s exactly what the Greek Veggie Burger offered, something completely different than the normal veggie burger. First, let’s talk about the house-made spinach patty. Can you say yum! When they said that it was a spinach patty they were not lying. If you take a look at the picture below where I cut the sandwich in half, you will definitely see that more than a few spinach leaves were used in the making of this patty. Now, for the best part… the toppings!!!
Whenever you hear about any food that begins with Greek or Mediterranean you already know that at least one item will be on there: feta cheese. YES! Feta cheese was a big part of this burger. Then, on top of the feta cheese they threw in greek yogurt. There was a whole bunch of dairy going on in the burger, but I was definitely okay with it. One topping that didn’t make me quite as excited at first was the huge heap of sprouts. I had no idea how I was going to fit all of those into my mouth. At first, I was just going to take the majority of them off and leave a few for health’s sake, but a few pushes to flatten the burger a bit made it mouth fittable. There were also slices of red and green peppers and onions to finish things off.
This was definitely no vegan burger. But for those of us vegetarians who don’t mind having a little dairy in our food, I would without a doubt recommend trying That One Spot’s Greek Veggie Burger. Be sure to see below for some great pictures from my recent visit!
