This year, National Hamburger Day and Memorial Day land on the same day, which gives us even more reason to celebrate with some grilled goodness. For any burger-themed or Memorial Day roundups you may be working on, we wanted to share all the juicy details on the Knockoff Burger and the Impossible Burger from Punch Bowl Social Portland (340 SW Morrison St. http://www.punchbowlsocial.com/)
On Memorial Day (Monday, May 28) Punch Bowl Social will be open for regular hours and serving two delicious burger options: the perfect way to indulge in National Hamburger Day. The Knockoff Burger features two grass-fed, hormone-free beef patties, Punch Bowl Social’s comeback sauce, pickled onion, lettuce and American cheese on a sesame seed bun—which may sound familiar, but is Punch Bowl Social’s own creation. For something a little less “meaty,” but just as satisfying, try the Impossible Burger, which is 100% vegetarian (and vegan if you order it without cheese) but upholds the same burger-eating experience. Since it’s a holiday, you’ll have plenty of time to bowl a few games, play a throwback arcade, or try your aim during a round of corn hole or darts after your meal. And while you’re here, share a bowl or order a single serving of namesake punch, prepared with fresh and balanced ingredients (alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions available).
