Brasserie Boheme’s Rolls Royce Burger
Pan seared duck liver on a bed of 8 oz juicy Angus beef served with a special house glaze, sweet potato chips, crisp mesclun salad and truffle fries.
If you’ve been dubbed the “Rolls Royce” of burgers, then you better be good. This one wasn’t just good, it was a “perfect 10”. Or more like a 5, based on this blog’s ratings scale. 😆
One of the first things I noticed was the patty’s softness and crumbliness. Though it made for a slightly messy experience, it was a good sign because it meant that the patty wasn’t overworked. Cooked to perfection, it was still nice and pink in the middle. Midway through, I commented to Ren that you don’t notice any “hardness” against your tounge from the patty. The meat is so juicy and tender that it practically dissolves in your mouth.
And the flavor! Rarely do my eyes widen after just one bite from a burger, but this was one of those times. Rich, creamy, smokey, and juicy with a delicious house glaze made with god knows what, it was amazingly tasty.
For the record, if you think that I’m raving about this burger only because of the foie gras, then you’d be half right. Though the foie gras did impart a decadent creaminess that put it over the top, it would have still been amazing without it.
I know that PHP 986 is a lot to pay for a burger, but this thing was massive. It was made with a half pound of angus beef topped with two slabs of foie gras, and served with a side salad, chips, and truffle fries. Pricey as it may be, it was the first perfect 10 in my search, and one that I would happily order again and again.
Verdict: 5 / 5
