Kimchi!

Kimchi - is a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings.  Quite tasty.  Add that and a fried egg to the incredible burger at Down House, and you have their totally awesome Kimchi Burger.   Many "taste buds"
experiences here.  As a b
urger lovers, I appreciated the eight ounces of thick and juicy Augustus Ranch grass-fed Texas meat patty topped with cheese, kimchi and a sunny-side up egg. The challah bun -- soft, moist and slightly sweet -- was well accented with bulgogi sauce, the Korean equivalent of a teriyaki marinade. All melded together -- the sweet and spicy, tangy crunchiness of the kimchi, the runny creaminess of the egg, the bulgogi sauce and juicy patty -- it made for one outstanding burger. The side of fries was crispy and generously portioned - so much so that I was not able to finish the fries!

The Burger I Have Waited Too Long To Try!

Down House in the Houston Heights area is one of those places I have been meaning to try, but never had the chance - UNTIL TODAY!  Forget that I've heard great things about their food, atmosphere, bar and BURGERS - my awesome "graphic designer" niece is their Hostess!  Why didn't I go until now, and I why did I go on a day when my niece wasn't there!?  Well, I'll be back for both reasons.

Their burger is awesome - just the sound of it makes my mouth water all over again!  I ordered the "Lone Star Burger" and it was the perfect blend of tastes - Cabot Cheddar, Heirloom Tomato, Lettuce, House Mustard and House Mayo on a Slow Dough Challah.  They left nothing off!  The first bite - I can't even describe the euphoria.  The cheese and house mayo and the slow dough challah enhanced the perfectly cooked medium rare hamburger.  I took the heirloom tomato (my favorite) off the bun and ate separately with a knife and fork!   The friendly service was the icing on the burger!

So, try it, you'll love it!  Their menu has lots of great items, but go for the Lone Star Burger or the Kim Chi Burger (which I will try on my visit next week, based on my nephew's recommendation)!
