Last Friday, I ordered a burger from Whisk Gourmet Food and Catering in South Miami. I have always heard good things about their burgers.
The cool thing about Whisk is that burgers served weekly on Fridays are in limited supply and have different toppings. That’s a great way to keep me interested in eating there.
Just a couple of days ago, my junior school friend @GhenghisJuan ate a burger from Whisk, the Blue Smoke, to be exact. He knew I had a Whisk burger last week, but our conversation never progressed past that point.
He emailed me:
The blue smoke was smothered with generous amounts of caramelized onion jam and blue cheese and topped with two slices of thick-cut smoked bacon. The bread was slathered with tarragon mustard. That’s medium but on the rare side. Good thing I like it on the bloody side. It was cooked perfectly. I love the burgers from this place. Whisk is my #1, no doubt about it.
What did you have last week?
And this will be my response, well actually, he’s going to read it here:
I’m not going to lie; your burger sounds better than the one I ate, but that’s also because yours had bacon. I had the Pimento Cheese Burger with aged cheddar, pimentos, grilled Spanish onion (I want to see some papers), lettuce, and tomato on an onion challah bun. I loved this guy, excluding the lettuce and tomato, which I could always do without. For a while, I was so focused on only the flavor of the beef that I lost out on the greatness of toppings. The toppings are really what puts the Whisk burger over the top. You didn’t mention their fresh potato chips; it’s always a nice touch.
