The rollout of Impossible Foods’ Impossible Burger — an entirely plant-derived product that looks and cooks strikingly similar to beef burger patties — started slowly in Boston. Clover first introduced it across its locations in the form of meatball pitas in late 2017, later expanding to offer the Impossible Sausage with egg and cheese on its breakfast menu. Around the same time, Central Square’s Little Donkey added the burger to its lunch menu, and in subsequent months the meaty faux meat crept onto more and more menus around the Boston area.

Now, meatless products that taste like meat are quite a growing presence among meat-free selections at restaurants, and not just the Impossible versions — there’s also the Beyond Burger and B4Burger, among others. Here are 16 spots serving them in the Boston area.
