Thoughts on Father's Office burger

E Eto | Sep 11, 2007 09:20 PM

I finally made my way to Father's Office on a weekday, just when they opened and had a nice leisurely dinner. I really wanted to try the burger, as everyone seems to have an opinion, and I was starting to feel a little left out.

The burger is quite good. The meat is juicy, and the condiments are of high quality. I loved the first half of the burger. But then, by the second half of the burger, I got tired of it. With the juicy meat, caramelized onion, and blue cheese, there's nothing to cut into the richness of the burger. I was craving more than the arugula that came on the burger. What it really needs is something to balance the richness, like a tomato slice or a pickle or maybe even some mustard. The fries with the aioli, albeit very good, only compounded the richness. Next time I'll know to split a burger and get some of the other menu items that looked very attractive. Getting there at 5pm is also key to having a stress-free time.
