I tried a boca burger one time and I was pleasantly surprised how much it tasted like meat. Once there was some cheese and toppings on it, I doubt anyone could tell that it was meatless.

A Canadian burger chain, Harveys, makes (or made) excellent burgers and vegi burgers. A vegetarian friend was over, so her husband picked up burgers for everyone, including a vegi burger for her. She kept asking if he was sure that he hadn't accidentally given her one of the meat burgers. I tried one another time and it tasted just like a meat burger. I checked the ingredients and was surprised that they were all food. No weird stuff in them at all.

As a vegetarian , I actually prefer when it's not too close to meat taste or consistency . Cause when it's too close , I spend my time thinking whether it is or not rather than enjoying it. Guess it's a psychological thing. That being said , I don't like dry tasteless rubbery things either .

As a non-vegetarian I know exactly what you mean in the opposite. When I'm eating a meatless burger, the more it tastes like meat, the less I'm distracted by what I might actually be eating. I'm not a fan of things mushed together with multiple ingredients, like sausage, so the more it tastes like a real burger the better.
