When my father told me last week that there was such a thing as Burger Week, and that it was actually happening right now, I thought it would be the perfect excuse to finally dine out and satisfy my burger cravings after a tough first week back at school. My father appropriately decided that we should eat at m:brgr, a casual yet refined restaurant located in the Golden Square Mile.
WHAT WE ATE : two kobe beef burgers with fried onions, tomatoes goat/monterrey jack cheese and bacon, one "petit zak" burger with a fried egg, a regular AAA beef patty rapped in lettuce topped with portobello mushrooms and monterrey jack, one bowl of fried stuff and finally a giant cookie for desert.
We were impressed with the variety of toppings that were offered, ranging from goat cheese to foie gras. Basically, you pick your meat, bun (and yes, it's possible to have it wrapped in lettuce!) and cheese/toppings if you desire them. You can also get a side dish for a few dollars. The burgers come with a truffle aioli on the side.
The burgers all had distinctive flavors that fulfilled the demands for fat and salt of our taste buds. While the AAA beef had a BBQ smokiness to it, the kobe beef patties had a natural beef taste to them and a tenderness that could not be matched. You can also have a pulled pork burger if you don't feel for beef.
The service was quick and our meal arrived about twenty minutes after we sat down. A choice of cocktails and alcoholic beverages was offered by the full bar. The waiter was pleasant and relatively attentive, but maybe a tad too personal.
The restaurant's ambiance is modern and comfortable. Don't be afraid to bring your family! The waiters are not snotty at all and the menu is definitely kid friendly.
Obviously, you must pay for quality. The addition of toppings and side dishes can inflate your bill without you really noticing. But I won't complain, because the quality of the food was up to par as was the experience.
