TORONTO — Aroma Espresso Bar has introduced a new Power Burger — a protein-packed, plant-based burger with the taste of a classic hamburger. Among the first restaurants in Toronto to offer this all-natural vegan patty, the Power Burger is available for a limited time at nearly all Aroma locations starting the first week of July.
“Our Power Burger is the best-tasting vegan burger out there and we challenge anyone to come in and try one,” says Neil Creighton, director of Food-and-Beverage at Aroma. “It will blow people’s minds how much it tastes like a traditional hamburger, yet is entirely plant-based and really represents the evolution of sustainable food production.”
The Power Burger has approximately 20 grams of protein packed into a 4oz all-natural vegan patty made with ingredients from non-GMO sources, including pea protein and beet extract. Grilled to order, the Power Burger is served on a toasted brioche-style vegan bun with house-made avocado spread, sautéed Portobello mushroom, baby kale, red onion, sundried-tomato pesto and mustard, alongside a salad of house-made roasted carrots, roasted red pepper, arugula and almonds ($12.95).
Also new this summer at Aroma Espresso Bar, available for a limited time, is the Ice Orange Mango Cream. A refreshing throwback to the classic Creamsicle, the drink is a blend of orange juice, mango purée, white chocolate, vanilla and ice, topped with freshly whipped cream, orange crystal sugar and a fresh orange slice ($5.85).
