|This looked damn fine.|
I came back the next week with my burger crew - Cuffy and Hoppy. I had built the occasion up, pretty much suggesting we were going to have the best burgers ever!! We ordered three burgers.
The burgers arrived and looked fantastic. Deep fried gherkins!! I have never had deep fried gherkins before. I was excited but went through my normal routine of photographing and dissecting.
The boys, meanwhile, were tucking in. And here is where the story turns. They were just not impressed. Dry. No flavour. Nothing special.
|But while it looked damn fine, it lacked any juicy goodness.|
Note the absence of juice on the plate and the crumbly meat pattie.
I took a bite. And then another. I tried to convince myself that it was great. But it wasn't. It was just OK. Run of the mill. Neither here nor there.
To me it was just disappointing. The burger was dry as a pancake. And the meat pattie was crumbly. Not a drop of pattie juice was anywhere to be seen on the plate.
All I could do was apologise for overpromising and underdelivering. And talk about how it looked so good the previous week. Perhaps it was just an off day. Perhaps the cook was sick? Perhaps they were yesterday's patties.
At the end of the day we were eating today's burger and not last week's (Note this was in December last year and not today!!) And you are only as good as your last burger. Not too good then.
Reason for visiting: to see whether you can turn up on a day when the burger is the best burger ever, or to try the gumbo.
