I can’t let May come and go without recognizing its biggest honor: National Burger month. Here is a quick journey through some of the best burgers I’ve had in D.C., the burgers I’ve made in the past year, and my burger bucket list… let me know what I should add!
Burgers I’ve Enjoyed:
1905: 1905 burger – Pure Angus beef blended with wild mushrooms and house smoked brie. This was before I took pictures of everything I ate… you know, back when I was fun to take out to dinner.
Matchbox (Brunch): Bloody Mary Burger- fried egg, cheddar, gouda and bloody mary mayo. Enjoyed during one of the many ridiculous brunches Jana and I splurged on during marathon training.
Granville Moore’s (Brunch): Sunrise Burger – grilled Bison Burger, cheddar cheese, crispy applewood bacon and sunny side up egg.
Kitchen 2404: Pit Burger – angus beef with pulled pork, fried egg, creamy slaw, smoked bacon, barbeque sauce, cheddar cheese, and caramelized onion. This burger is ginormous (if ginormous wasn’t a word before this burger, it is now). Courtney and I planned to split this and another sandwich… the other sandwich came home whole.
Burger Bucket List:
Bourbon Steak Oak-Fired Prime Steak Burger with piackles, cabot clothbound cheddar and secret sauce
Palena The Palena Cheeseburger
Poste Onion Soup Burger: Virginia grass fed beef, comté cheese, caramelized onion soup, onion bun
