|Lokal's delicious take on a veggie burger|
Unlike their meatier namesakes, veggie burgers are a more complex breed. The lack of ground beef-as-glue requires a delicate balance of proteins, veggies and other creative components to hold these patties in place. Keeping them nicely cohesive while staying simultaneously delicious is a challenge -- one that some eateries excel at over others.
With these factors in mind, Short Order took a look at Miami's veggie burger landscape and hand-picked the city's five best. (Some might even argue these outshine their beefy counterparts. We'll leave that up for debate.)

5. The Vegetarian-Chipotle Black Bean Burger at Lost and Found Saloon.
This Western-themed kitschy charmer, parked midway between Wynwood and Midtown, is known for an impressive array of vegetarian-friendly eats -- and a discerning craft beer assortment.
Their spicy little three-bean veggie patty sits on sourdough, adorned with sliced red onions, plum tomatoes, coleslaw and requisite pickle spear. Add-on options are almost endless and include cheese, avocado, portabello and grilled eggplant.
While we can't help but wish they served fries, at least that lowers the guilt factor. Instead, use those calories on a jumbo cookie for dessert.
