My absence from this blog does not mean I have stopped eating hamburgers. On the contrary - there are so many great burgers in Houston, I am just busy trying them all. There are several burger blogs I need to post, but one deserves immediate attention.
The French Cheeseburger from Squable is a serious contender in the Houston burger scene. To set up the scene, their rendition is a stout beef patty, raclette (pale Alpine cheese from Switzerland), butter, and pickles, on a house-baked pain de mie bun, and served with fries. This description does not give the burger justice, but the photo below does. The white cheese envelops a thick juicy patty that was nicely charred at the requested temperature of medium. While not usually a fan of pickles on my burger, I can’t imagine the French Cheeseburger without the tartness of the cornichon pickles, which added to the contrast of flavors. At $17, and served with simply prepared fries that were crunchy on the outside with a tender middle, this burger was quite a savory mouthful. I had to push the plate away for fear of over-indulging on the fries. Try it for yourself, and you will agree that this burger is definitely something to squabble over.
Cheers to Eating More Burgers!
