Awesomeness Alert - Cochon's Burger

I'm not sure what it is about this burger that is so ...well... awesome. It could be the Neuske bacon, or the good cheddar, or the caramelized leeks lurking beneath it, or the light, toasted bun slathered with sherry-spiked mayo. But it's more likely the meat itself, moist and not over-handled, well-charred on the grill, still dripping juices.

The only downside is that it's only on the menu during Sunday Brunch (11am-3pm) and it's hard to resist the more traditional breakfast-oriented options. But it's worth skipping the glazed ham and eggs, the gargantuan pancake, the berry-covered french toast. Get the burger.

  1. Wow, that burger looks awesome. The fries look great too!

  2. The fries are good, but they're very crisp, pretty much all crunch, with none of that soft potato texture that a thicker fry can give you. That's not necessarily a bad thing, just a personal preference thing...
