Well, third time’s a charm, as they say. Finally, I have overcome the evil forces that were conspiring to keep me away from delicious burgers! My friend visiting from Hong Kong and I descended upon Kook’s for lunch on Wednesday (after first phoning ahead to make sure they were, indeed, open, ha). There was a bit of a problem deciding what to eat, as there were so many tasty items listed on the menu, but I finally narrowed it down to the bacon burger. My friend ordered a sandwich, beef on ciabatta.
When my burger arrived, I was astounded. Huge. Beyond huge. How can I get that into my mouth?? Whoa. My friend keeps telling people it was the size of a basketball. It wasn’t quite that big, but it was BIG. And the patty was nice and thick, juicy and tasty, seasoned just perfectly - no “Where’s the beef?” at this establishment! The accompanying fries were also quite marvelous, crispy on the outside and soft inside, especially tasty dipped in the extra side order of bleu cheese dressing (hey, do you guys make that yourselves? Cuz it was really good ).
My lightweight friend only ate half of her sandwich (she saves room for snacking on junk food, silly girl), and since she made the mistake of giving me a bite, she may not ever get to eat the other half that’s in the fridge right now, hehe. That must might be my breakfast today.
Definitely looking forward to going back, will try to do that as often as possible during summer break, as when school is in session I don’t go out to eat much. I’ll pass the word all around Tamkang U and drag my classmates and friends in to see you.
Thanks, Liam, Emma, and Sandy for this fine addition to Danshui’s cuisine, I’m so happy I finally got in the door!
