The Burger Project’s ANGUS Bleu Buffalo
PHP 215 – Angus beef, blue cheese, pickles, lettuce, onion rings, tomatoes, buffalo sauce.
If you’re unfamiliar with BRGR: The Burger Project, it’s a burger joint that allows you to build your very own burger from the bun up. You get to choose everything, from the type of beef that you want, to the bun, to the cheese, to the toppings, to the sauce. You even get to name your creation prior to its assembly.
Though the prospect of building your own burger sounded like fun, Ren wasn’t exactly in a “constructive” mood that night, so she opted for one of their ready-made, signature creations. Being more a fan of blue cheese than actual burgers, it’s no surprise then that she picked this one. Like me, she had high hopes, fully expecting it to taste similar to Charlie’s delicious Gorgonzola Angus Cheeseburger. Much to her dismay however, it fell way short of that.
Like my Western Bacon Melt described HERE, she got hers with Angus beef, but was disappointed by the patty’s lack of flavor. Unable to hold its own, it was overpowered by the buffalo sauce, which tasted very tangy and sweet, almost like pineapple. It was odd, and something that I didn’t care for myself. On top of that, we couldn’t detect a hint of the blue cheese, which ironically, was probably a good thing. Seeing as how the sauce was so sweet and tangy, Ren’s convinced that the pungency of the blue cheese would have clashed with it entirely.
Judging by its taste and components, this looks to have been a fusion of a cheeseburger and Buffalo wings. An interesting concept to say the least, but one that didn’t quite pan out in our opinion, at least not here.
Verdict: 2 / 5
