Our next stop for Burger Week was Grindhouse Burger Bar. Even though it didn't have the greatest reviews online, I was tempted by their burger offering. In the end, I should've trusted those reviews!
Las Vacas Locas ($5): Beef patty, sour cream, chili, seasoned kidney-bean salsa, hot peppers and avocado on a cornbread bun. The burger was a lot smaller than I had anticipated, especially after my Hrvati Bar experience. On the whole, the burger was really disappointing. For one, the bun was too big for the patty. On top of that, the patty was unpleasantly dense, and that cornbread bun was dry and cold. Even the addition of punchy and flavourful toppings couldn't save the burger!
Grindhouse actually left us so unsatisfied that we made the trek to another Burger Week participating restaurants- Murrays Sandwich Emporium. As a sandwich lover, I've always wanted to check this place out for its gourmet sandwich selections.
Judging by the quality of the burgster, I wouldn't hesitate to come back to try out their other gourmet sandwiches! A big thanks to The Grid for organizing such a fantastic event! I definitely look forward to another one next year!
