Has it really been three years since my last post on here? In fact, it has been longer, but who's counting? Or who's even reading? (Shout out to my mom, my sole reader! Thanks, Ma!) And no, that is not a typo. (The "typo" I am referring to is not the misspelling of "burger," but my three-year absence from this dead blog.)
Sadly, I don't eat out as often as I would like now that my husband and I are outnumbered by our kids. In fact, this was one of the first times the beau and I sat down for a relatively nice meal sans our children, and lemme tell you, it was pretty darn glorious! (I felt obligated to post these snaps on here, since I posted them on Facebook.) Hey, a post of food pictures on my social network is worthy of a post on this thing.
At my special outing yesterday to Gordon Ramsay's Burger, I opted for the Euro burger with truffle aioli, goat cheese, arugula, and an oven-roasted tomato. The pillowy and crisply-toasted bun was a match in heaven with the peppery wisps of arugula and gamey cheese, but the truffle parmesan fries with truffle aioli were a greasy and over-fried disappointment. Love the ethereal melt-in-your-mouth flakes of parmesan, but I could hardly taste the truffle and, unfortunately, I have had fries done better at fast food establishments. But an outing is an outing, and worthy of a quick note on the good ole' food blog.
Have you tried out this wrinkly and irate chef's dining establishments? I'd love to hear if you did!
