The first time can be awkward, unless it's at Vandaag
"Ham" Burger @ Vandaag
The Meat: Pork/beef blend
The Cheese: Gouda
The Bun: Brioche, black sesame seeds
Three things set this burger apart. Wrapped in bacon, the already-smokey meat blend exudes a deep, powerful flavor. Atop the burger sits a half-inch thick grilled onion which, along with the gouda, cuts the meat's intensity so that bites are flavorful but balanced, and full of interesting textures. Finally, the rough-cut sautéed potatoes are crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, and sure to please when dipped in Vandaag's spicy aioli.
