Should you be craving a lunchtime burger adventure, look no further than Peli Peli in the Houston Galleria. The Huguenot Burger will definitely take you on a culinary journey. I recently enjoyed this unique take on an American Classic.
As is my preference, the meat is the main attraction on the Huguenot Burger. The frikadelle patty, which is a Northern European meatball made with beef and pork ground with onions, peppadew, cilantro and spicy biltong seasoning, made quite an impression. However, their Huguenot topping not only wins the presentation award for a stunning burger, but it adds so much flavor to the overall experience. A blend of raspberry chipotle sauce, creamy blue cheese and bacon, each ingredient complimented the other, and only added to the deliciousness of the meat. Juiciness reigned with each bite, certainly due to the nicely charred patty, and I cannot recall taking a pause during the entire meal.
The glistening toasted brioche bun held together nicely, yet was light and robust with flavor. Served with a side of their seasoned crunchy sweet potato fries, sweet and salty came together for a harmonious burger adventure. Thank you Peli Peli for being brave enough to present a hamburger that represents the culture of your heritage, and presenting a new way to enjoy a most beloved food group.
Cheers to Eating More Burgers!
