One of the plusses of doing something like the Amstel Light Burger Beast Challenge is that I get introduced to a place like Bull Market (
210 SW 2nd St, Fort Lauderdale), which had never made it onto my radar.
I planned to sit down and order whatever their signature burger with an Amstel Light, but that all changed when I looked over the menu. Grilled Cheese Flights? Mac & cheese with jalapeño bacon? Grilled wings in candy pepper sauce? Just like what you might hear in an auction house, SOLLLDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!
The Grilled Cheese Flights were quarters of one grilled cheese (cheddar, jack & smoked gouda cheeses) stuffed into shot glasses of tomato basil soup. Happiness is all that I can use to describe this starter, utter bliss.
The Mac Attack was ooey and gooey, but the jalapeños lacked the heat I was hoping for; good thing the bacon was there for fatty goodness back up.
Where have these Wall Street Wings tossed in candy pepper sauce been all my life? Whoever created that sauce deserves a Nobel Peace Prize, no, for real.
Bull Market Burger Talk
My bud Alex who was with me, ordered the Bear Market Burger with their bison chili. We had initially thought about getting the bison chili as a starter, but when he picked out this burger, we changed our minds.
The bison chili also has ground turkey, which could be the secret ingredient that makes it so good.
I love to see Regional Specialty Burgers on menus. The Juicy Lucy is the specialty burger of Minnesota. If you’re unfamiliar with it, you should get to know it. The Jucy Lucy, or Juicy Lucy as it’s spelled here, is a burger stuffed with cheese.
Few restaurants in South Florida make one, but Bull Market’s Juicy Lucy Burger jumps to the top of that list. If it’s not the best one I’ve ever had, it sure is damn close. And that Bull Sauce is just the icing on the cake.
No Bull here, it’s all great!
*Bull Market comped my meal which I had no idea was going to happen, or I would have ordered more things; just kidding.
