10 Impossible Meat Menu Items That Aren’t Burgers
Three years ago, a taste bud stupefaction of epidemic proportions rocked the country when diners sank their teeth into the Impossible Burger for the first time. A juicy, meat-like textured patty that even… bled!? Fast forward to present day where you can find this plant-based witchcraft on almost every other corner, and the world seems like a brighter place because of it. But did you know that there are a plethora of Impossible Meat dish options in the City of Angels OTHER THAN burgers?! Read on my legume-loving friend. We’re about to drop some “Impossible-y” tasty knowledge.
Impossible Cigars – Crossroads
The cutest little appetizer you ever did see. Crispy, flaky dough wrapped around Impossible meat shaped like charming cigars. Sport your best pinstripe suit and fedora while you dip them in the tangy almond yogurt dipping sauce and have a little fun playing with your food!
Impossible Taco Salad – Mendocino Farms
The classic taco salad revamped to be LA body approved. You’ll feel those wellness vibrations with plant-based Impossible crumbles, creamy cashew ranch dressing, quinoa crunchies, and generous nooch—designed in collaboration with the Impossible Foods team.

Pasta Impossible! – Blue Cow Kitchen and Bar
A decadent dish to have you FUH-GED-ABOUD all past plebeian pasta dishes in your life. Noodles plus Impossible meat is pretty much the combo that’s been missing from our mouths. Big ‘ol al dente rigatoni smothered in hearty bolognese sauce made of Impossible meat and roasted tomatoes. You’ll be ignoring your date and saying “how YOU doin’” to your food all night. Plays well with red wine (duh).

Rigatoni with Impossible bolognese sauce @blue_cow_kitchen in DTLA. I love being able to eat vegan Italian food, and I love when non-vegan restaurants are hip to Impossible meat! #veganlunch #veganpasta #veganitalianfood #veganrigatoni #veganbolognesesauce #roastedtomato #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #veganinla #vegansofinstagram
Vegan Impossible Enchilada (lunch only) – Tortilla Republic
Keep that snatched figure with these low-carb Impossible-y flavorful enchiladas! Jicama tortillas wrapped around tinga-style Impossible beef alongside sweet roasted carrots, squash, red onions and bell peppers all smothered with creamy cashew cheese and ranchero sauce topped with that pickle-y onion goodness. The salsa macha on tops got that kind of mouth burn kick at the end that keeps a vegan feeling ALIVE.
Impossible Vegan Tacos – Fred 62
Fred’s isn’t just for late night drunk eating greasy fries and hating yourself anymore! They gots Impossible tacos, y’all! I’m talking crisp napa cabbage, Fresno chiles, red onions, and parsley atop Impossible ground taco meat with a citrus-y tomatillo avocado twist at the end. Okay, maybe still the perfect late night debauchery munchie.
Loco Moco Bowl – Beelman’s
A Hawaiian twist on Impossible meat that’ll have you feelin’ loco! Sambal sauced Impossible ground meat atop a generous bed of purple napa cabbage, Garlic jasmine rice, ponzu, and sweet chili sauce with a sprinkling of bright green scallions. Your tastebuds will be taken on a flavor surfriding adventure!
For when you wanna customize on the cheap, on the fly, Impossible style! Qdoba flavors up their Impossible crumbles with a savory blend of spices and onions, and let’s you have it in a bowl or in a taco, ‘cause you gots options, son! Choose your own Impossible adventure with toppings like cilantro, red onion, or salsa verde. Test the daredevil in you and specify your spice level from 1 (stay near Mommy) to 4 (Satan’s wrath aka burn your face off).
