We made it out to Splitsville in Disney Springs recently after hearing that they have the “new” Impossible 2.0 burger on the menu. While the Impossible 2.0 blend has been available since earlier this year around the country, this is the first time it’s available at Walt Disney World during daily operations to our knowledge.
If you’re unfamiliar with it, Splitsville is a two-story bowling and dining location. It is located just steps from the Orange Garage (best garage?) and the AMC Theater on the West Side of Disney Springs. On to the burger!
Impossible Burger – $20
Plant-based, all natural patty topped with melted American cheese, awesome sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle. Vegan options upon request. Served with fries.
We have to say, ever since our first run in with the Impossible burger at the 2018 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, we have been intrigued by the offering. Needless to say, we were excited to try the “2.0” blend. Impossible says that it’s a “slightly tweaked” version of the original, but we found it to be an excellent improvement over what we had at Epcot.
Ok, let’s take a look at what Splitsville is offering. We’ll start with the aesthetics of it. We’ve had our fair share of burgers around Walt Disney World property, and for this to work as a meat alternative, it has to look the part. Of course, the folks over at Impossible Burger have taken great care in creating something that really earns them the “impossible” branding. It looks impossibly just like a meat burger, which is a great start for the average guest to make this a part of their visit. The Impossible 2.0 Burger contains no gluten, animal hormones, or antibiotics, and is both kosher and halal certified.
Even inside, the Impossible Burger is made to look like it’s “bleeding” – just like a meat burger. So much of what we eat comes down to expected flavor and texture. The bar is high for meat alternative products, and the Impossible Burger delivers on every single level. The taste and texture is spot on. If you’re visiting Splitsville and looking for a healthier alternative, I can highly recommend their Impossible Burger. It is worth noting that on the heels of the announcement by Burger King that they will be offering the Impossible Whopper around the country by the end of the year, Impossible Burger is reportedly experiencing a shortage. We’re not sure if that shortage will affect Splitsville or not, but we hope it sticks around for years to come!
