Lots of variety but not well done

I actually visited here last month but haven't had the time to do a review until now. The picture of this place is still clear in my mind though because it definitely made an impression.

It definitely seems like the hip place to be on the strip that this place is on. It's a combination of a burger diner, cafe, bar, and bubble tea shop. I have the feeling that they chose to go with a little bit of everything because then it becomes a place that draws all kinds of people. There were kids hanging out after school, families with kids, working professionals stopping in after work, and groups of friends catching up. I thought it was an interesting idea.

Unfortunately, what I visit a restaurant for is the food above all else and I personally don't think that Upperhand delivered on that part. I ordered the pulled jackfruit burger and while the burger certainly wasn't bad, it was overpriced for the size of the burger, didn't come with anywhere near the amount of fillings specified on the menu, and I found the pulled jackfruit to be overly seasoned. Obviously I can only comment on the vegan options that I tried, but I had a non-veg friend with me at the time who commented that the bubble tea wasn't that crash hot and the popcorn chicken was dry.

I would probably return if there were no other options. I also wouldn't protest if I had friends wanting to visit here because at least there are vegan options. Still though, it's not a place I would go out of my way to return to.

Delicious food

Great option for some quick and easy food. I had the tofu burger and the salt and pepper tofu and neither disappointed. Would recommend.

Pros: More than 1 vegan option
