    That brie looks scary. Like two bunny fangs hanging out of the bun’s mouth or something. Does that much cheese over power a burger? And cold unmelted cheese. I agree with your friends about the iceberg lettuce. I can easily cut a head of lettuce into those wedges and serve it on a plate ta ya. That’s interesting about the fig jam on the bottom of the wedges. Did the chicken still have the skin on?

      Dear Faye: Brie is not scary. IT LOVES YOU. 😀
      No, I don’t think it overpowers the burger but I’m a little biased because brie is my favorite cheese! I do prefer it hot and melted though. Geez.
      Yes, the skin was still on those little drumette/lollipop chicken things!

  2. I liked their sausage sampler here. The pork belly on a stick was also really good although the fried apple chips didn’t really do much for it. Just give me more of that pork man. Great lunch you guys had except for the blue cheese stuff. (Shudder).

      Hi CC – I’ve been wanting to try that sausage sampler! Maybe next time. Yeah, the apple chips were like a decoration to me more than anything else. They didn’t taste that great either – chewy apples, what?

  3. I’ve been here for happy hour with coworkers and we liked it too! We stuck to the happy hour memu for prices and the pork belly was definitely a stand out…especially because I normally don’t like pork belly. Usually its too mushy in texture but I loved how this one was crispy on the outside. Didn’t think the apple chips matched too much but I ate them separately 🙂

      Hi J.S. – Happy hour might be something I need to check out soon, then! Cheaper prices are always a nice thing. I love crispy pork belly, the mushier versions aren’t my favorite either. Crispy or else! The apple chips seemed totally random to me. At least someone is eating them!
