Sunny Side Up

Visiting my parents in Connecticut for the Thanksgiving break led me to find other things to do with my time than forced family interaction, so I decided to check out a local burger spot that opened recently, Burger Bar Bistro in South Norwalk that boasted an array of specialty burgers and sliders. I was a little skeptical as they also boast that you can upgrade any burger to “Grass Fed Kobe” for $4 – but I’m going to leave the whole “authentic Kobe beef” debate to the meat experts.

I decided to get the B.E.C burger: Thick Cut Applewood Smoked Bacon, Runny Egg, Double American Cheese, Fries, & Spicy Ketchup. Apparently the burgers do not come with fries, which I thought was kind of ridiculous considering the burger itself is $13. (Who is coming up with these price points for burgers nowadays?! Seriously. It’s kind of getting out of hand.) So my friend and I just got a serving of fries to split since they already gave us salt & vinegar chips and some kind of weird (but yummy!) sweet, warm donuts with butter on the house.

Look how empty the rest of that plate looks. 😥

It came on a seeded bun, similar to the kind they use at Bobby’s Burger Palace, which I really enjoyed. And with an adorable little  “Burger Bar Bistro” flag mounted on top! Pulling back the bun, I revealed a beautiful sunny side up staring back at me, which deliciously oozed over my burger.

Burger rating: If it hadn’t been for the price tag & lack of fries, I would have given it a solid “B+”, but I’m going to have to go with a “C+”. The burger itself was delicious. All the elements worked together well and it was definitely one of the better “breakfast burgers” that I’ve had (egg/bacon/cheese combo).

So if you’re ever traveling up I-95 North through Connecticut, take a little detour at Exit 15 and check the place out. (Or you can keep driving and hit up Shake Shack in Westport!)
