We're back. After a while the burgergeeks are back in business. Our first challenge after our break is the bonefish restaurant. They offer their American Kobe Burger. As you can see from the pictures, this was a picture perfect burger. Just looking at it made your mouth water.
As we all know, even though a burger looks good, that doesn't make it delicious. Now for the taste test. First look at the burger I wished it was more medium than well cooked, even though, it looked very juicy. Now to the first bite. Yup it was very good. The meat was very juicy, all the incredients tasted fresh and well balanced on the burger. So overall the question is would I come back just for the burger. I think I would, not to forget their service was also excellent and their bang bang shrimp, just yum. So yes, my rating would be a 7 out of 10, as always I was missing the wow factor. The one item that makes this burger go above all others.
After a several months on hiatus, we are back on the hunt for great burgers. Our latest stop is Bonefish Grill on San Jose Blvd.. What, you say? We'll, we've been hearing that the burger is really good, so we're here. Besides, they have Bang Bang shrimp for appetizer. I ordered the "American Style" Kobe beef burger, with cheese, cooked medium.
My burger arrived fresh and hot and nicely presented with fries (it's usually served with housemade chips, but I'm about traditional and this is the American Style burger after all). I tried a piece of the burger and it was cooked perfectly, still juicy and had a nice charbroiled flavor. The brioche bun was toasted, the tomato, lettuce and onion were fresh and cool, not warm and wilted. I really enjoyed the combination of flavors, and liked the burger very much. Using my 10 point rating system, I give the burger 3 out of 3, the bun 2 out of 3, and the toppings 3 out of 3, no extra point for the "Wow" factor. The totals score is 8. A solid score for a well executed tasty burger. Nice job Bonefish Grill!
