Phuket burger from Burger Guys in Houston.
This burger was the perfect combo of spicy, sweet, salty, tart and savory. I am not a huge fan of tamarind, and the tamarind glaze on this burger was deliciously tart. The beef has excellent flavor, definitely beefier than any burger I have had in a very long time. It was messy, that is for sure.
We tried the Hatch green chili burger (the special) and it was really good. I appreciate that they used regular jack cheese and not pepper jack like everyone likes to do. It was very very juicy and really dripping wet.
I had heard that they had a Captain Crunch shake, and I was really wanting to try that, but they were out. :( Since I love cinnamon ice cream, I decided on the Cinnamon Toast Crunch shake and wow was it good. Tasted just like the cereal with milk…so so so very very good. I can’t wait to go back and try the Crunch Berry shake.
We also had the duck fat fries and they were not greasy, and perfectly salted. With those, I had the blue cheese sauce, tabasco mash aoili, and siracha mayo (my new fave condiment). The blue cheese was okay…just like creamy blue cheese dressing. The siracha mayo had the perfect combination of flavors. But the tabasco mash aoili…holy crap was this good. My favorite of the three that is for sure. We had the onion straws with the tabasco mash ketchup which was okay…they were a tad bit greasy, and we were so busy with the fries that was neglected eating half of the basket.
Overall, we will be back to try at least a couple of other burgers and the whole array of hot dogs. I love that everything is sourced locally and the condiments are homemade and taste as such. The staff is nice and everyone is so friendly. Totally worth $30 for two people for everything we had.
