Dinner 10/17/2012: Burger Bar, Mandalay Place, 3930 Las Vegas Boulevard S. #121A, Las Vegas
Black Jack burger and Chocolate burger
Had very high expectations since it’s a Hubert Keller restaurant. Was surprised by the fact it was located in the middle of a mall.
Black Jack burger with black angus beef, monterey jack, tapenade, tomato, and lettuce on ciabatta didn’t do much for me. Maybe it was the tapenade, but I just wasn’t that impressed, or at least not as impressed as I hoped to be. Skinny fries, however, were perfectly cooked. 3/5, $13.80.
Now, the Chocolate burger… THAT impressed me. Warm donut “buns,” Nutella mousse “beef patty,” passion fruit “cheese slices,” strawberry “tomatoes,” and kiwi “pickles.” Adorable. If only I could eat one of these everyday… 4/5 stars, $6.25.
