Two days ago, I discovered burger heaven! I told myself I’d try to get away from doing reviews on this blog, but this place was too good to pass up. Yes it was so good I had to write about it. Two days later, and I’m still craving a wburger.
It was Thursday night and I was craving something meaty. I like to consider myself somewhat of a burger connoisseur. A friend and I have spent the last 4 years experimenting and trying out different restaurant and pub burgers, giving each our own personal rating and class etc etc. Friend texted me and wanted to know if I wanted to do dinner and try out this burger joint called wBurger Bar. Jackpot. A burger joint. Just the meaty dish I was craving for.
Thursday nights are $2 Sleeman nights at wBurger. They’re half pints though, but order a pint and you save a buck almost. Sleeman pints are normally $4.97. They start you off with veggies and dip at no charge. They have a great menu of burgers. I like how the focus was on the burger, the meat. How it works is you select your burger meat, and the toppings and sides are listed on the side of the menu, and you order your burger to your liking. They have a range of meats from regular “hormone and anti-biotic free fresh from the farm ground beef” to high class Japanese Kobe beef.
I broke the temptation to try out the exotic beefs like bison, kobe, lamb, and a special scramble egg mixture (they even have vegetarian options like portabello mushroom and veggie patty) and went for the ground beef. What scored a point on my check sheet was when they asked if they wanted it medim well, well, or well done. And even asked if I wanted it on a flat top or a char grill. Oh the sweet lovely details. My order was the ground beef with mixed greens, roasted peppers, sauteed unions, chipotle ketchup, and garlic and herb mayo with a side order of 50/50 fries (regular potato and sweet potato fries). My friend had the bison burger with sauteed onions, chipotle ketchup and horse radish with a size of panko breaded onion rings. I’ll tell you about that in a bit. The onion rings themselves were worth blogging about.
Despite all the veggies I loaded onto it, they paid particular attention to the detail. Instead of a large sloppy mess to make the burger look bigger than it was, they actually fung shui-ed the veggies and sauce so that it all fit under the bun and still making the meat the prominent part of the burger! As for the taste, they added just enough of the condiments and veggies so that it would accent my burger, but not take away from the actual meaty taste. And was it meaty!
I wish I had a better camera as the mood lighting was a bit low for my iPhone. But this was how meat was suppose to taste and look. Beefy. Not dry, not too runny, not burning hot. Just the right beefy texture like good organic farm raised chuck was suppose to taste like. Finally a burger that tasted just as good as it looked! I won’t go into the fries, good as they were, they didn’t stand out, but my friend’s panko breaded onion rings did!
Large pieces of panko style breaded onion rings, with a side of chiptle mayo. I suspect they used an egg white mixture for the batter as the onion rings stayed crisp and light and not heavy at all. What I loved about them was even through the meal, they kept their crispy consistency as they got colder! Amazing!
I would definitely come back again, and now it seems when I’m craving beef, wBurger Bar is the first thing that comes to mind. You can check their website for further deets and location. The joint is 5/5 in my book.
