Cititour Review:

Years after its opening, Superiority Burger in the East Village continues to draw a crowd. Most are here for its crowd-pleasing Superiority Burger which, while being completely vegetarian, has an unchiousness that can't be beat. It's the kind of food that builds layer after layer of flavor and before you know it, it's gone. Those is in need of something larger tend to gravitate to the Megamouth. Another hot item is the Sloppy Dave (which in reality is a Sloppy Joe) made with tofu in a sweet tomato sauce topped with frizzled onions. You won't miss the meat. In fact, having eaten it a few times, you'd swear it is meat. And then there's the Burnt Broccoli Salad which drew raves in Bon Appetit. It's made with red chiles, whipped eggplant, cashews and corriander. I tried duplicating this at home and couldn't come close. The restaurant version is stupendous! Also on the menu is a Tahini Ranch Roman Saland, and something called New Creation. It's made with grilled yuba, or tofu skin, that is cooked until nice and crispy. It's sort of a take on a Philly cheesesteak topped with sliced pickes. Superiority Burger, with its unique vibe and atitude, is a New York treasure.
