Alias' veggie burger is listed on the menu as "Amazing Veggie Burger on Sesame Bun" pretty high praise, but you do have to consider the source. That said, this panko crusted portobello stuffed with black beans, queso blanco, pico de gallo, jalepeno mayo was rockin. The outside of the burger was perfectly crisp. It reminded me of my beloved 'Shroom burger from the Shake Shack with a bean filling instead of a gooey cheese center. I'm a little mayo-shy, so I ordered it on the side, which was a good call because the mayo 1) was awesome, 2) is a totally necessary creamy addition to bringing the crunchy, gooey experience together, and 3) it was good to be able to control how much mayo ended up on the finished product. The burger is $8 at lunch time and $10 for dinner (and definitely one of the cheaper dinner options).
