In Search of the Better Burger – Part II

I apologize for not being able to update SybDive as regularly as possible; I have been rather ill of late.  (The flu is just nasty this time of year!)  But, I’m back and have a fresh new set of culinary adventures to share.


Sango Master Burger

This is often said about burgers: they tend to be flavorless provender, mass-produced meat by-products, and are generally uninteresting.  This, of course, applies to burgers from most international franchises.  (Ever had a Burger McDo?  [shudders])


There are, of course, exceptions to this rule.  Hotshots is one; Brothers Burger is another.  One officemate of mine swears by Bite Club over in Blue Ridge, while another insists that homemade sliders are the way to go.  Me, I have my own personal fave: Sango the Burger Master.

Kimpira Gobo Rice Burger

In a previous incarnation of this blog, I already reviewed this fine establishment’s kimpira gobo rice burger (sweetish burdock root and bacon sandwiched between two slabs of rice).  As is obvious, this place is run by a cheerful Japanese chef who has given fast food faves a new look and a definite Asian twist.


Pictured at the top of this post is Sango’s signature sandwich: the Master Burger.  Think of it as a Sloppy Joe sandwich gone over the top.  A flavorful beef patty is topped with a mustard-mayo dressing spruced up with finely minced onions, a rich and meaty sauce that wouldn’t seem out of place on a plate of spaghetti, and a large slice of fresh tomato.


Chunky fries!


Oh, and be sure to order their fries.  You’ll need these chunky-cut fried spuds to scoop up the sauce!


Matcha milkshake


Beverages of choice here are the glorious matcha milkshake and the delightfully refreshing Calpis Soda which tastes like a fizzy vanilla yoghurt.


One note here: this isn’t your average, ordinary burger joint so the prices are a bit higher but still quite reasonable.  Trust me: you’ll leave stuffed and absolutely satisfied.
