Remember that video game? You were a chef and you had to climb ladders and knock down the ingredients to make these burgers while being chased by evil little hot dogs, eggs, and pickles.
I miss the 1980’s.
Every Tuesday night that Mr. Salt isn’t working we all head up to one of our favorite local restaurants for burger time. Not the video game. They have discounted burgers on Tuesdays.
I’ve literally stopped ordering burgers from anyplace else besides Kooper’s because every time I do, I’m disappointed. There is just no competition. And they don’t just have awesome burgers either; their whole menu rocks. Read this and prepare to be hungry.
Anyway, back to burger time. The menu consists of a BYOB section which means Build-Your-Own-Burger (you don’t have to bring-your-own-beer…or wine either THANK GOODNESS). I’m one of those people that can eat the same thing over and over again once I find something I like so the waitstaff could probably just put my order in as soon as they see me arrive. My combination rarely varies. Here we have my dinner deconstructed:
You and I both know that I am not a food photographer, but I think this picture looks pretty damn delicious.
It is a free-range turkey burger covered in jalapeños because I like spicy things. Then there is some feta cheese, chipotle sauce because I like spicy things, and then some other random onion, tomato, and lettuce that I don’t bother putting on there because I like to keep my burgers and my salad separate. I appreciate that they always serve their burgers with those things on the side.
Oh and there’s a pickle. Their pickles are amazing and I usually order extras.
Here is the burger constructed before I started shoving it into my face. Cameo appearances by Betty’s crayons and chocolate milk.
I have always been a turkey burger fan and would occasionally order one if I was out someplace that had them on the menu, but ever since Kooper’s opened I find myself CRAVING these burgers. I’m starting to think they are laced with something addictive.
Do you love burgers? What are your favorite toppings? Do you like to mix it up? Do you love jalapeños?
I hope everyone has a tasty Wednesday!
I am in no way affiliated with Kooper’s. I just really like their food. All delicious opinions expressed in this post are my own!
