I have to admit, I was surprised on my last visit to see how the menu has shrank. Gone is the mondo bargain appetizer platter, gone too is the crème Brule cheesecake. The menu has been cored down to a sleek two sided page of pub fare… and that includes the Build Your Own Burger.
For $8.99 ($9.99 for a turkey patty) you get a slice of Swiss or American cheese plus your choice of four toppings. The choices are mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, egg, bacon and onion. It’s served up with fries.
So yeah… I decided to go for it and had the lettuce, tomato, mushroom and egg on my burger. I’ve had other fried egg burgers and they range from good to… well, disgusting. I had hopes this would be a good one.
The mushrooms added a nice firmness to the burger, savory as if they’d been sautéed in the same sauce, substantial. And the egg? I think I was a bit relieved it was over medium rather than over easy. The yolk was just liquid enough to start to blend with the rest of the burger without being runny. It glued the rest of the burger together.
It is an unusual burger, and worthy of the pub fare brand. Best of all, it was nice and juicy and filling. I approve.
