Schlafly Bottleworks' Turkey Burger
One of my favorite lunch spots is at Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood. It's got a huge patio, a big menu and more beer than Andre the Giant could drink. The other day I stopped by for one of my go-to dishes: the Chipotle Blackbean Burger ($9.25). I rarely get veggie burgers when I go out, mostly because they taste like the vegan garbage my university's cafeteria served. This one has a little heat and a little smoke thanks to the chipotle, plus it manages to stick together well. No one likes a crumbly burger. It's served on a wheat bun and topped with melted gouda, spinach and sriracha aioli. Tortilla chips are served on the side. I also recommend their Turkey Burger with Brie and tomato-mint jam and their Hummus. The curry crackers that come with the hummus are excellent.
