It’s quickly become a sensation in the food world and now the Impossible Burger has made its Las Vegas debut at Andrea’s, the award-winning restaurant inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. Made entirely from plants, the Impossible Burger looks, smells, cooks, and tastes like ground beef but with a much smaller environmental footprint.
The Impossible Burger uses about 75% less water, generates about 87% fewer greenhouse gases and requires about 95% less land than conventional ground beef from cows. It’s also produced without hormones, antibiotics, artificial flavors and is cholesterol-free. Available exclusively on Andrea’s menu of innovative, Asian-inspired cuisine, the Impossible Burger will be featured nightly in three unique dishes crafted by Executive Chef Joseph Elevado. Guests may experience Impossible Burgers as three sizzling sliders, with frisée, kimchee, pickles, kalbi sauce and kochujang aioli; Thai crispy rice cups made with Impossible Burger, mint, cilantro, chili, onion, ginger and peanuts; or ma po tofu—meatballs made with Impossible Burger, chili paste, shiitake mushroom and green onion.
“People always ask us when the Impossible Burger will come to their hometowns,” said Pat Brown, CEO and Founder of Impossible Foods. “We want the Impossible Burger to be everywhere—but until then, Vegas is the next best thing. People from all around the world can try the Impossible Burger in Las Vegas, which gets 40 million visitors per year.” “Andrea’s has always been about fun and decadent dining,” said Chef Elevado. “We strive to showcase unique, yet approachable dishes that never sacrifice quality or presentation. The Impossible Burger fits right in—and I’m thrilled to introduce my take on it to our guests.”
