We headed to the original location in Chinatown and took a seat at its long, narrow, wooden bar. Obeying our conscience, we ordered a salad as well, but we must confess that it remained untouched (and was taken home) once the main draw arrived. The deliciously juicy beef patties are encased in a just soft enough brioche bun. There’s a pickle for sweet-and-sour contrast, and we added Gorgonzola cheese, one of the optional toppings. One bite easily leads to another, and another mini-burger is gone before you know it.
The burgers arrive in a nest of slender, crunchy onion strings. Their taste and texture complement the burgers perfectly. Making for an irresistible pairing.
