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.

I’m a Believer

Dear Brunch, I’m sorry for doubting you before and I take back (almost) everything negative I said in the past.

Why you ask?

Because last weekend, I had a brunch that changed my life at the Bainbridge Street Barrel House.

They put a burger on French Toast. And it’s amazing.

At first, you might seem skeptical. Burger on french toast? How does that work? Do I pick it up and eat it? Does it come with toppings? How do I ask for it to be cooked?

Luckily, BSBH takes the guesswork out for you. Two, thin patties come cooked medium-rare and are sandwiched between 2 succulent & thick pieces of french toast.

Underneath the “bun” is bacon whipped cream (!) and on the side for your drizzling enjoyment is whiskey maple syrup. This is probably the only time it’s ever acceptable to eat a burger with a knife & a fork.

What a beautiful mess!

This French Toast Burger definitely puts a new spin on your average “Breakfast Burger”. It’s a must try!
