As the burger arrives, under a cool green light that radiates from a confounding slogan that claims ‘green is hotter than red’ and with only word-of-mouth views of satisfaction towards this burger joint, an eager wait is filled with prodigious contemplation as lungs are suffused with burger elation, eyes inspired with hamburger aesthetics, and taste drenched in a tremendous burger taste balance – the deliverance onto one’s senses become an eloquent pleasure to ingest from a succinct range of profoundly rich ingredients.
The teamwork represented in the components is impeccable, with the greens as the burger’s only slight drawback – not having had a chance to comfort in, the veggies are too cold for the rest of the burger. It won’t matter much though, as the romaine lettuce is crisp and lush, the tomato firm and juicy, and the chunk of red onion surprisingly subtle; beyond that, the rest of the ingredients gleam in brilliance. The beef is assertively tasty – each articulately teared mouthful is a passionate embrace of beef, of a patty that is smartly seasoned and expressively juicy. The bacon, with an unyielding reddish-brown that looks and feels brittle to an easy crumble, manages to rouse the meat experience with its baconesque saltiness.
The burger construction and its different textures are marvelous – staged to a stability of enjoyment, everything is kept in place with minimum spillage. The cheese is fruitful with a grading sharp cheddary taste, and bears an exciting earthy texture that melts itself in exquisite particles; the bread is select and supple, appetizing and able, carrying the burger and a hearty sesame leave-behind. The horse radish mustard mayonnaise is present without being domineering, and the fries are good.
