Up for our next two - The Banh Mi Burger from Ho Chi, Vietnam (My Fav!) - Coated in their tangy house-made Vietnamese glaze topped with sliced cucumbers and pickled vegetables, accompanied by a garnish of cilantro and green onions and The Date Burger - Enhanced by their rich date chutney, diced fresh dates and softened cream cheese, with crisp lettuce and tomatoes. The Banh Mi Burger was my absolute fav! More on that one later.....The Date Burger was surprisingly good. The sweetness of the dates and cream cheese was in no way over whelming, in fact quite the opposite. Everything blended together smoothly. It was different, but different in a good way. Def something to try if you're looking for something other than the same ole fat burger.
Last but not least is the Local Legendary Burger - A juicy 1/2 lb Certified Angus Beef burger topped with pineapple, cheddar cheese, golden fried onion rings, lettuce and tomatoes. Can never go wrong with a good ole fashion burger topped with onion rings! The pineapple just adds that extra bit of sweetness.
Now....I said I was saving the Banh Mi Burger from Ho Chi, Vietnam (below) for last. There is a reason for that - it was my absolute favorite burger out of the five we tried. The veggies that topped the burger were so crisp and fresh is accented the burger to perfection! A nice juicy burger coming together with crisp fresh veggies was the perfect mix. I wish this was a regular menu item, I would visit much more often just for this burger - that's how good it is! Along with the burgers they have more than just a couple versions of fries - a tip, try the chili seasoned fries - the best! The garlic is also good, anything with garlic in my opinion is worth trying!
Gotta have something to drink to help get those burgers down. We sampled some of the brand's world famous cocktails, and yes, that is bacon in the Maple Old Fashioned drink!
My favorite - The Maple Old Fashioned - a twist on a classic cocktail that features a refreshing blend of Mount Gay Eclipse Rum, Cointreau Orange Liqueur, Monin Orgeat, a splash of lime and orange juice. Also pictured above is the Pomegrante Mule with Absolute Vodka (a favorite in Russia) and the Pineapple Ginger Caipirinha - a Brazillian blend of Agua Luca, Cachaca and pineapple with the subtle hint of Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur.
