Do a Barrel Roll

I’d already been to Bainbridge Street Barrel House to try their french toast burger, so it was high time I got back around to trying one of the other awesome burgers on their menu. This time I opted for the Sally Smothers: a delicious 8 oz Pat LaFrieda blend patty topped with fried shallot, provolone, mayo, pancetta and a fried egg. It sounded like perfection on a bun! (Put a fried egg and any type of pork product on a burger and I’m yours forever.)

The burger came out cooked perfectly to medium, as requested. The yolk was nice and runny, mixing deliciously with the beef, adding a little extra juice to that already tasty LaFrieda meat. The shallots were nice and crispy as well. But be forewarned: this burger was MASSIVE! I almost didn’t finish the whole thing. But it was too amazing for me to not eat it all; I couldn’t let it defeat me! And despite being another brioche bun, I liked that it was seeded and less shiny than the buns used at other places. (It reminded me of the buns that they used to use at Pub & Kitchen.)

Look at that big bun! It definitely held up nicely with the combination of meat juices & egg yolk, and was perfectly proportional to that colossal patty.

Burger Rating: “B+”
