Meatless Mondays with Metro: Monty’s Good Burger

Take a little more transit and eat a little less meat — two things you can do to reduce your impact on the environment. In this installment of Meatless Mondays with Metro, let’s take a trip to the newly opened Monty’s Good Burger.

Monty’s (named after an adorable schnoodle) menu is very similar to that of In-N-Out’s – very traditional. You have the option of a single or double cheeseburger made with Impossible Foods patties. Get your burger with a side of fries or tater tots and a variety of vegan sauces. Their 100% plant-based menu also includes floats, shakes, cookies and salads.

Originally based in Riverside, Monty’s new Koreatown location is making a huge splash in Los Angeles. Warning: you may experience long lines. Over the weekend, I had a burger craving (I ate a burger two days in a row) so I didn’t mind waiting the extra time. I ordered the single cheeseburger – Impossible patty, vegan cheese, house spread, lettuce, pickles, tomato and grilled onions sandwiched between two potato buns. Let me say, WOW! It was one of the best tasting burgers I have had in quite some time.

If you don’t believe me, journey to Koreatown and try for yourself! To get to the Monty’s Good Burger take the Metro Purple Line, Metro Bus 207, or Metro Rapid 757 to Wilshire/Western. You can also take Metro Bus 20 and Metro Rapid 720 to Wilshire/Serrano.

    • There are quite a few in the area between DTLA and SanMo. What we need is better coverage (by The Source) in the south bay, LBC, Mid-cities, north and west SFV, the AV, and extend SGV.
