Really have to say that upon hearing about it, I was extremely excited for the @foxburgerbar
popup at @eatsalz
! Out of the burgers on offer I had to go with the Smashburger. Smash Beef Patty, Bacon, Cheddar, Lettuce, Pickled Peppers, and Special Sauce. I love a simple burger done right and this was exactly that. The first thing upon biting into it that you realize is how juicy this burger really is! The patties themselves have a really nice texture to them, and are cooked and seasoned perfectly which makes each bite incredibly satisfying, especially when you get into the thick cut bacon which adds to the juiciness, flavour and texture of the burger. I liked the fact that they used more of an aged white cheddar for this burger which added a nice bit of sharpness and combined well with the meaty flavour of the burger. The special sauce and the pickled peppers were a nice touch and added the right amount of sweetness and tang to the burger overall. The bun, which is made in house and is an often underrated aspect of the burger held up incredibly well. Overall this burger was nailed on and executed perfectly flavour and technique wise.The Garlic Butter Fries I have to say we’re quite exceptional too. Garlicky but not overly so which can be an issue sometimes when it comes to Garlic Fries. The garlic butter also added a nice richness which you also don’t usually get with fries. I was really impressed by these! By the end of this I didn’t have much room for dessert but I was tempted by the Goats Milk Caramel Ice Cream Sandwich. This was unreal and honestly the biggest surprise today. The cookie aspect of this ice cream had just the right crumble and the perfect cinnamon and chocolate chip flavour to it, which combined well with the Goats Milk Caramel Ice Cream, which was smooth and so creamy!
