The Rockefeller Burger

January 28, 2011 § 2 Comments

This burger is so good! I was even thinking about it the next day.

The Rockefeller Burger is from Alondra Hot Wings Restaurant and is basically a burger with a fried egg on top. When you take a bite all the ingredients just melts together. The bread is soft enough but not mushy and they don’t grease it up like other restaurants. So you bite in and you get the soft bread, then the fried egg with it’s undercooked creamy yolks, then the thick piece of gooey cheddar cheese, break through the crunchy bacon (which makes everything better), get to the juicy patty, and then the crunch and freshness of the veggies…..aaahhhhh! So good! The only thing to make this burger better is some creamy avocado to melt with the rest of the burger.

Here’s a cross-section picture of the yumminess.

The Fried Pickles I got with it sucked by the way. I tried it plain then dunked it in ranch, but nothing made it good to me. I don’t see what the fuss is about with this snack.


Just Grillin’ Burgers

A Just Grillin’ Burgers opened by me and it’s always empty so it took me awhile to get around to trying it out. I figured I wasn’t too hungry so if it sucked I wouldn’t be disappointed. It’s actually pretty GOOD!

“All of our hamburgers start with 100% fresh, lean beef and are topped with grilled onions, crisp romaine lettuce, tomato, pickles and our own zesty special sauce on a toasted bun.”

I ordered a single and added mushrooms and avocado with a side of sweet potato fries. My husband ordered the Avocado Bacon Burger with their spicy fries. Burger patties weren’t anything to go crazy over, but I loved how it was stuffed with the rest of the toppings like grilled onions, avocado, etc. Most burgers skimp on those. Sweet potato fries were crispy and well seasoned. The spicy fries were ok. I was surprised to see the crinkle cut fries which reminded me of school lunches. (which I strangely miss) But the “spicy” seasoning on it wasn’t anything to go crazy over. They also gave a big cup of ranch to go with your fries which is a plus and they offer ketchup and Cajun ketchup (spicy banana ketchup I think).

Honey Boba

Boba was one of those things I never understood. A sweet gummy bear like thing in my drink?! GROSS.

So that’s how I used to think until I had the Milk Tea with Honey Boba at 15 Cats Cafe.

This drink was like the perfect amount of sweet, creamy, icy and chewy in a cup. The milk was slushy and a little sweet. The boba on the bottom was warm so it melted some of the slushy milk on the bottom where it surrounded. And the final yummy-ness is the caramel drizzled on the insides of the cup that melts with the warm boba and milk. So so good. I think it’s the milk being barely sweet that I like, it balances out the slightly sweet boba with sweet caramel.

I’ve only had this drink from 15 Cats Cafe and Half and Half Tea House and prefer the one from 15 Cats Cafe.
