Burger.org: Organic Fast Food in South Philly
Several weeks ago we accidentally came across a new resteraunt in South Philly called, “Burger.Org, “promoting itself to be all organic. All of their meat is farm-raised and they even have wild cat fish (see full menu below). It sounds like an oxymoron at first: organic fast food? But after getting educated on the importance of buying organic and farm-raised food and meat, it definitely gets a mention in my blog as I hope to (slowly but surely) compile healthy resteraunts around town where you don’t have to “wonder” if the meat comes from the immoral food industry (see my blog on Food Inc) or if their food is organic. Burger.Org is one place where you can set those worries aside and enjoy a big fat burger, and if you mention their ad at YELP.COM, you can get a 10% discount off your order.
According to Grub Street Philadelphia, they are soon opening a similar resteraunt called, Chicken.Org. The only thing I’m slightly confused about is that the .Org seems to stand for “Organic” and not a website address, because instinctively I punched in www.burger.org but nothing comes up. Zippo. It’d be nice if the resteraunt could secure that name and also Chicken.Org. It appears they secured http://burgerorg.com/, but the website is currently under construction.
Their burgers are free range turkey, free range chicken, or you can get a veggie burger. You can also get sliders (one option including fish), salads, and shakes.
The Philadelphia CityPaper published a food review of the resteraunt back in May, citing,
“Burger.Org looks to satisfy more than just the beef eaters — Aranya and Nadav’s menu, which tops out at $9.99, offers free-range turkey, free-range chicken, fish and fully veggie options. Specialties include “El Mariachi” (any burger topped with pico, guac, raw onion, tomato, lettuce and chipotle), a vegetarian “breakfast” choice (topped with egg, cheese and spinach) and the option to miniaturize any three of the aforementioned patties. Fries (color-box, spicy, truffled or sweet potato), salads, smoothies (fat-free organic yogurt), organic ice cream shakes and a selection of organic sodas round out the eats.”
