My mother wanted to have a soup from Norman Brothers Produce. It had been quite a while since I had been here. I had originally heard of Norman Brothers because of their smoothies (this was many years ago before smoothies were everywhere). When my wife Marcela and I lived near there we would shop for Beef and Chicken just because of the quality was/is so good. Approximately a year ago, someone mentioned to me that I should try out Norman Brothers’ Wagyu Burgers. I wasn’t even thinking of this when I walked in. I was trying to figure out what I was going to choose for lunch. When we walk in, to the left of us is a small refrigerated bin with Norman Brothers’ Blue Cheese Dip.
I’ve had this before and it was ridiculously good. My thought at this point was: what could I get to eat that would be a good reason to purchase the Blue Cheese. When I reached the area where there’s warm food, I found it! Chipotle Chicken Wings!
My mom went with a Pastrami Sandwich. (by the way, purchase 5 sandwiches and the 6th is free, we received a card).
The sandwich is served cold. Don’t know if that makes a difference to anyone but my mom prefers the sandwich warm. She also had a Cheese Soup that was really good.
It had some veggies in it (I remember crunching on carrots at some point). What could be better with Cheese Soup than a Cheese Biscuit?
The wings were awesome and had a little bit of heat but not too much for you wimps out there. After we had made our lunch decisions we walk by their Cold Cuts/Butcher area and I see this sign:
After a flashback sequence to someone’s mention of this to me, I decide I have to buy them.
For dinner, we’ll have a BBQ. I also wanted to purchase some of their American Style Kobe Hot Dogs but mom reminds me she has a pack of good ole’ faithful Beef Ball Parks. On the grill, those guys are so good. Fast forward to 6:30 PM and I bust out the grill at my parent’s house for a Wagyu Burger Party. I purchased 6 regular Wagyu Burgers and 3 with Bacon/Cheddar Cheese mixed into the meat.
All 9 plus 8 of the Ball Park dudes are grilled to as near perfection as I am capable. Unfortunately, because some of my family not well versed in the meat universe, most of the burgers are cooked well done. There was one burger left bunless (only 8 buns to a pack). A few of us including my cousin have them cooked Medium.
I really couldn’t tell much of a difference between the Bacon/Cheddar and the regular except the B/C seemed to be a little moister. Honestly, this was the best burger I’ve ever grilled. Everyone loved them and like the sign says “YOU”VE GOTTA TRY THEM”.
