The plant-based Impossible Burger made huge strides in 2017, establishing itself as a legitimate beef patty substitute that wound up being served in many major restaurants such as Umami Burger and Fatburger.
Impossible Foods, the company behind the Impossible Burger, is not limiting itself to burger patties, though, as it teamed up with Tallboy Taco in Chicago for a new Impossible Taco.
If you're not too familiar with Impossible Foods, the hype is that they created a meatless burger that actually tastes like meat. It doesn't "almost" taste like meat, or seem "meat-ish," it tastes like a damn burger — and even "bleeds" like one.
As mentioned, Umami Burger in California made it more accessible to the public, and in late 2017, Fatburger added the Impossible Burger to a few of its Los Angeles locations.
That real meat taste is transitioning to tacos, now, although the price tag of two for $12 is going to be a little tough to swallow.
Still, as was the case with the burger, the Impossible Taco sounds like something you should try at least once, and more importantly, it means we're making strides in beef sustainability.
Don't be surprised if we start seeing Impossible Beef in meatballs, nachos, rice bowls, and anything else that's usually ground beef-based.
With plant-based progressed like this, it seems the future of food looks like it will involve a lot less cows.
