Awesome Burger!

Sunflower Drive-in on Urbanspoon

I'm not sure whats in the "Nutburger" patty but, it was awesome! pared with a house sauce, pickles, tomatoes, romaine, and sprouts. As a professional cook (non-vegetarian) I recommend to those skeptical of this cuisine. Give it a try. you don't have to fit the stereo type to enjoy this food. Plus your helping a local business as well.

• Soy sauce
• 1 large egg
• Peanut oil
• 1-11/2 cooked short grain rice (calrose).
