Burgoo is known for its comfort food from many regions around the world. I also discovered that it’s next to The Last Crumb Bakery!!! We had to wait for a spot for brunch and they said it would be a half hour wait so guess what? We went next door to eat dessert first :D BEST PLAN EVER!!! I will blog about that some other time.
I ordered their classic Macaroni and Cheesewith aged white cheddar. It looked super delicious but after a while I was super full from all the carbs and cheese. And ok maybe the dessert I ate before hand… hahaha but it was very rich and heavy! While comforting, I think the flavour felt very one dimensional and I was starting to get sick of it but if you love cheese they don’t skimp at all! I guess I’m not a cheese person after all. This was the Eggs Ratatouille with “three scrambled eggs served over oven baked ratatouille with toasts, melted Gruyere, Emmenthal, Mozzarella and Chevre”. Sadly I was not the one who ordered this. I had considered it but my friend ordered it so I decided I should get something else. The vegetables were super tasty in the tomato sauce! It was also perfectly cheesy and the eggs were lightly scrambled. I like this better than the mac and cheese. The tart tomato sauce gave me a break from all the cheese I was eating when I stole bites from my friend. It was also much lighter and it had veggies!
So before school started (yes this is a really overdue post), my friend and I visted Burgoo on Main street. I’ve heard a lot about their comfort food so it was nice to finally be able to try it! The location wasn’t as big as I expected but it was nice and cozy looking. They also had a big outdoor seating space though.
The bar area. It was Monday and they had Mojitos on special so we decided to share one.
This was pretty good, they put a lot of mint leaves in it!
Since we were sharing, we decided to get a Caesar salad. The portion was quite big for the $8 and they piled on a LOT of cheese! It as also light with the perfect amount of dressing.
We also shared a soup and sandwich combo. This is the Italian Wedding soup. I don’t think I’ve really had this before there was a lot of minced meat pieces at the bottom. It was also a bit spicy which I did like. Not really my kind of soup though but the portion was quite large for a soup.
Terrible picture of the pulled pork sandwich. Just had to get this even though I’ve spent my whole summer eating pulled pork sandwiches… As you can tell, there was a lot of coleslaw and it was fairly big and came with extra BBQ sauce too. I didn’t add the sauce because it was messy enough to eat already but maybe a bit more sauce would have been good. There was ample pork though! I enjoyed it but it wasn’t the best one ever.
Our bill came in this cute dim sum container :)
Overall it was a nice meal and service was friendly but I’d like to try more of their other dishes sometime since we didn’t order anything special this time.
