Don't Monkey With The Meat

We had lunch at Monkey Burger yesterday.

I had high hopes after seeing the menu but wound up disappointed.

Ed had The Monkey (bacon, smoked cheddar and swiss cheese, roasted poblano peppers, sauteed mushrooms, romaine lettuce, tomato, caramelized and raw onions) and I had the South Shore (five spice patty, pepper jack cheese, shredded lettuce, pineapple relish, ginger BBQ glaze - on the side).

The menu choices sounded really delicious.  They had a lot of interesting combinations.  But what killed it was the burger.  It was a commercial product, pressed into a flower-shaped patty.

Not hand formed, not smashed, not open range-raised, not hormone and anti-biotic free.  It was a meat patty from a commercial food distributor and the texture and flavor ruined what could have been a good burger.

Monkey Burger.  Probably not a good restaurant name given the inferior meat used.  Perhaps that's what monkey meat tastes like.  Ewwww.    

This is not a restaurant I will go back to.
