Burgers & Sandwiches

Soft or buttery buns, sourdough bread or rye: justifying the consumption of these carb goodness by calling them burgers or sandwiches.

But whatever you choose to call it won’t change the fact that it’s utterly delicious. The rendition sees black truffle paste, comté, and serrano ham snuggled between 2 slices of generously buttered, well-toasted bread. Just imagine your fave ham & cheese sarnies tszujed up in a fancy-ass, but extremely elegant, black tie suit: this is it. I like how liberal they were with the butter so you get that really moist, browned butter kinda caramelised notes on the toast. Parfait 👌🏻

Well I mean there are 2 reasons really, we don’t wanna overlook the team’s hard work and commitment in seeing this through; but the main thing here is that their bagelwiches are fucking delicious. Ain’t no one got time for sprinkles and rainbow bagels, TMBH promises mega hearty bagelwiches that are as fuss-free as they are complex in flavours. They’ve got a fantastic menu of time-proven creations for you to choose from, but you’re free to customise your own and pack as much as you want into your bagelwich. Take my advice though: regardless of the store you’re intending to visit, get there early. They’re so popular they can sell out as early as 2PM, so get yo lazy ass there pronto. You snooze, you lose.

The sweet, mellow, soft roasted pears worked so well with the generous amount of crispy bacon and creamy ricotta, and when you put all that yumminess on a really good slice of bread — serious toast heaven. What I found to be an especially great touch, was the fried sage leaves liberally sprinkled over. It adds such a surprisingly earthy, savoury, and wonderfully herbaceous note to the toast, completely elevating it imho. What I didn’t really like though, was how sweet the caramelised onions were. They would’ve been fine in dishes without other sweet elements, but here, together with the roasted pears, it made the entire dish a little too sweet for me.

Forgive the blurry cheesepull shot, my sister was so excited to try this she couldn’t stay a little still for the photo 🙃 I’ll say the feeling’s very well justified, cause this grilled cheese sandwich tasted every bit as good as it looks. The rosemary sourdough bread was so fragrant, with the right amount of tang in there, and boasted a wonderfully airy yet chewy and densedough, which tastes absolutely gorgeous when toasted. Put that winning bread with a combination of 3 cheeses that, together, offer just the right amount of that meaty mouthfeel, saltiness, and stringy melty oozy goodness — you’ve got a winner here mates 👌🏻👌🏻

It’s got that pink colour, juicy dribbles, smoky flavour, and the ability to get that characteristically charred crust that previously only a grilled beef patty could offer. And oh hoho, it even bleeds like beef. That’s the Impossible Burger for you 😉 If you haven’t tried it yet I’d highly suggest you give the ones at The GoodBurger a go, cause they do the meatless mince mighty justice with their burgers. Make your burgers a double (+$6) to really get a load of that patty (it’s worth it trust me), and if you’re a fan of truffles get The Black Tie ($18). The truffle flavour’s nicely pronounced here without overwhelming the other components, which imho is great so your burger’s really well-balanced and you get a good zing from the pickles, some crunch from the arugula, and a little silky cheese with every bite 🥰

I generally try my very best to find even the slightest nice things to say, especially when I’m visiting a place whose branding and philosophy I really like; but I have to admit nothing good came to mind when we received our Salmon Smørrebrød ($16). It’s not that it wasn’t tasty, but these 2 toasts barely amounted to the size of my palm — I kid you not — with each slice of bread being no thicker than my finger (which is pretty small I assure you). Yes the bread was good, so was the housemade dill creme fraîche and the smoked salmon. Is it worth $16 though — I think not. My sister was so upset with this she wouldn’t stop ranting for half an hour. I mean think about it: if I could get a hefty grilled cheese sandwich that easily feeds 2 for $19, why would I order this?

10000% not joking when I say this plant-based burger tasted like a solid, greasy af, legit burger. Words cannot describe how amazed I was biting into it with massive skepticism, then having that flipped right back at me with a finger in my face. There’s no way to be convinced besides having a go at it yourself. Take my advice: head down to The Goodburger’s food truck (check their ig to find out where they’ll be), grab The Classic ($16) and make it a double (+$6), then sink into burger heaven. Though personally I wished their buns were the softer, squishier sort, and that they offered better fries given the $22 pricetag — especially considering how Black Tap’s just next door and their cheapest burger option’s also priced at $22.

A fluffy, buttery, griddle-kissed brioche bun, slathered with some sweet caramelised onions, then topped with thick slices of back-bacon, some soft cheddar scrambled eggs, and a sexy blanket of zingy spicy aioli. If you ain’t tempted you ain’t hooman (I’m talking to you vegans ok I’m joking or am I). I couldn’t care less about the tater tots on the side — I believe they only serve to justify charging $16.50 — cause that’s just how happy I was with the burger. If anything, I wish the onions were a touch less sweet and leaned more to the savoury end.

I’ll tell you now: no regrets. What we got was a whole lotta — basically a mountain — of juicy, earthy, meaty, and garlicky thyme mushrooms; a handful of fresh arugula; and a thick layer of creamy, rich, slightly tangy housemade ricotta; all of these sandwich between the yummiest slices of country bread. YUM. It seems quite steep at $18 for a meatless sandwich, but with the amount of attention paid to each element, as well as how generous the portion was really, I’d say this was worth every single cent.

Not that it isn’t good, but this is my exact sentiment. You’ve got slices of good ol plain white bread, nothing artisanal about that and basically what classic greasy American grilled cheeses espouse; and then you’ve got a rather atas blend of cheeses — emmental, brie, and parmesan cheese — melted to a soft, chewy, meaty centre, creamy yet flavourful enough. Yes it’s yummy enough, but at the same time I can’t help thinking it could be better either swapping the toast out for sourdough, or keeping the bread and throwing in some kraft cheese 🤔 still it is a pretty good bite with the side of smoky bacon tomato soup, and very decently priced at $11.

But I gotta admit the fried chicken was exceedingly yummy. I mean it was nicely marinated, tender and juicy, and had a fabulously crunchy batter that’s very much like what you get from shrimp paste chicken wings, but without that flavour (if you get what I mean). It’s a wee bit salty on its own, but nicely balanced out with slices of fresh tomatoes, simple slaw, and a genius touch of sour plum powder. Now what I didn’t like, was that the toast was perhaps a little over-toasted and lacking that fluffiness a good sando has. Also would’ve preferred if they pounded the chicken so it’s a more even piece that’s easier to bite into? But what really ticked me off was the salad dressing, which I swear tastes basically like pure lime juice emulsified with a bit of oil — crazy sour and like, really guys it’s a rookie mistake come on.

I’m struggling with this cause with the Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deal this seafood roll’s definitely among the cheapest around; yet I can’t say it’s the most satisfying, or that I’d ever be willing to pay the full non-discounted price. Starting on a positive note, their Boston rolls are pretty fluffy and well-toasted so that’s a big hurrah, however I have to say they aren’t buttered well enough. If they look fabulously golden here...I’m sorry it’s just my photo edits. The rolls were also exceedingly thick, which means I’m really getting more bread than seafood in each bite — not the most ideal, but acceptable for its price point. As for the seafood: I’m glad there were actually discernible lobster claws in there, albeit small ones and pretty fresh as well, though the mushy shredded crab left much to be desired. What was most disappointing was the sauce. I picked the Maine sauce for this, which should remind you of the fresh tasting citrusy, mayo-y, light kinda dressing that really highlights the produce. Idk if they wrote “sauté” on the menu as a mistake, but it did seem that they cooked the seafood with the sauce, which resulted in a really heavy tasting filling and tough lobster meat. At $23 ie $11.50 with the 1-for-1 it was ok, cheap and yes fresh; but I’d never pay the full price for it.
