Nothing like a good burger!
One of the fun things we like to do is find the local pub, cafe, ice cream parlor, etc. to find the "best eats" - not just the places the tourists are sent to. Most of the time we ask around, sometimes we just spot someplace that looks interesting. That's what happened this night. We felt like "a really good burger" and wandered around town until we spotted this pub with a lot of cars outside (always a good sign). The name immediately intrigued me, Mudshark Brewery & Restaurant.
Now, I have to admit, I am a sucker for blue cheese burgers, so when one is on the menu, I stop right there, no need to go any further. Jack's pretty easy to please, as he pretty much goes for the "basic American-style" burger, but is real picky about his fries. They have to be very well done. Burgers delivered, looking good, even Jack's fries done just the way he likes them. I'm a Jenny Craig student, so when I get my meal, the first thing I do is cut it in half and set one aside to take home for later. That done, I take my first bite. OMG! I don't hardly know how to describe it, except to say, do you remember a time when there was a real popular chocolate dessert called "better than sex cake"? Well, this burger just kicked that cake aside! It was the best bite of anything I had ever taken. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven! "To be fair" I told myself, I took a bite of the burger without any blue cheese, one with just the beef hanging out of the bun. It was the most juicy & flavorful bite of burger I have had since, hmmm, well, since, hmmm, let me get back to you on that one...
The second half never made it home.
