Just had an amazing cheeseburger at Kronnerburger, which is part of the Bruno's space in the Mission. Seriously delicious. Messy, juicy, incredibly flavorful. We had the cheeseburger, which is cheddar mixed with mayo, somehow. Came with a nice slice of cool, crispy iceburg. Bun was perfect, soft yet didn't fall apart. best burger in recent and distant memory. i have to say, may even beat out the Mission Bowl burger for me, as a more "everyday" burger. you have the option of adding marrow in your burger, but, and i can't believe i'm saying this, but why? (tho, i will try it at some point.) it was perfect as is. they also have a crab burger, a patty melt, pimento grilled cheese, the marrow as a side dish, with toast, and these humungous wings and fried green beans.

fries were also really great - crispy yet meaty. onion rings are made with rice flour and i forget what other flour, but they were light and exceptionally crisp and not oily, served with a spicy aioli.

cocktails were fun and very tasty. do not expect to find wine here - they have one sauvignon blanc and a tempranillo, the latter of which I had, and it really wasn't worth the bother, I didn't even finish my wine. (tho i do think they could be well served by having at least a couple of really good reds with that burger). We moved on to cocktails. really enjoyed the pickleback - a shot of whiskey and pickle brine - great combo of salty/tart and smokey. we also tried the scotchocolate milk - a lusciously creamy, not-too-sweet chocolate milk with scotch (duh). an adult take on the childhood favorite. surprisingly light for such a rich drink. we also had (yeah, it's Friday night), the carbonated mother-fucking, margarita - nice, refreshing.

but, that burger...also, a nice dark ambiance, super-nice bartenders.... good place to get lost in. yay.
