My friend invited me for a late lunch not too long ago at The Butcher’s Den
We were given the menu with two cotton candy wooden bowls… they were not really bowls, but as I examined’em, it turned out to be made of some biodegradable material – cool 😉 Anyways… If you know Ahmed AlBader is, you would know that he is always creative with the unusual complimentary starters (just like the caramelized popcorn in Bistro Eighty6)
I ordered the burger… nicely presented on a wooden cutting-board with extra thin onion rings and a chili pepper. The burger came in cut in half in a brioche bun. What I liked about it is the juicy beef patty itself. I did not like the bun that much, nothing against the brioche – as a matter of fact I like brioche buns, but there was something off about it together with this burger and the cheese/sauce.
My friend ordered this shank, which I stole a piece of! The verdict? It is good, really good, but there was no need for the stew/sauce. The meat itself is of a high quality and really tasty and juicy by itself
