With the choking economy here in the US nowadays, nothing simply last forever and that did not spare the travel agency that my husband and I went to for our travel needs in the first few years after we got married. What replaced the location of the office? A burger restaurant! The Emmons Avenue strip overlooking Sheepshead Bay is now truly a paradise for foodies with a vast assortment of cuisine options from different restaurants.
With a foodie husband who is always on the prowl for new restos right here in our neighborhood, he was quick to find out about the newest burger joint in town.
A few weeks after we came back from the Philippines, we headed to the resto to finally check it out and try their offering. We were there at an odd time on a beautiful weekday, right before the early evening crowd. Service was good, for how can they falter when they were serving only three tables inside plus a few tables outside.
The Truffle Fries at $5.95 per order was great. In fact, I would have been satisfied with two orders of their truffle fries and that would have been a good meal for me.
But this is a burger resto, so who would think of passing up on their burger?
My husband and I each had the Classic Cheese Burger (100% Kobe beef with cheese) and the regular burger toppings PLUS additional toppings for him – grilled slab bacon and egg (don’t I always write about him requesting for egg often?) and I chose black caviar for my additional topping.
This was our first and the last trek to this restaurant. Looking way past the prices, our decision not to dine there again is because of the food. It just didn’t suit our palate. There’s something about the burgers that was not quite right. When you spend almost $70 (burger, fries,drinks and then some) for two and you pay for every topping that you want to have for your burger, it’s just but right that you love every single bite of your food which was not the case for us.
