On July 30, chefs Mike Garber (Mohawk Bend), Jet Tila (The Charleston), and Kajsa Alger (STREET) will compete in the ultimate meatless Monday challenge, duking it out to see who can create the best animal-free burger.

Keeping the burgers vegan is no small feat, considering most veggie burgers use egg as a binder. It will be interesting to see what each chef uses to bring the ingredients together in a healthful yet delicious way.

LAist will be there judging it all, as will Los Angeles Mag's Lesley Barger Suter, Heather Goldberg and Jenny Engel of The Spork Sisters, and Antoanet “Toni” Aburto from M Café de Chaya. Guests won't be left out of the game though: A $12 vegan sampler platter of the burgs will be available for purchase. And just like on "Top Chef," they will vote for a fan favorite.

The competition will take place from 6 p.m.-9p.m. with winners being announced at 9:30 p.m. There will, of course, be countless California craft beerson tap to sip on while waiting for the results.
