I wanted to squeeze a short and quick post before Winter officially kicks in! I honestly can’t believe we’re nearly at that time of year already. bitemeshowme also turns 1 next month – how exciting! Anyways, so for lunch today (yes lunch today, and that’s how eagar I am to blog about this) I had an awesome burger thanks to Raff and his recommendation! Take one look at the picture and I bet your mouth will fill up slowly with some drool…….
This delicious looking burger can be found at Momo Brasserie. A golden yellow, lightly toasted, sweet brioche bun is filled with mass amounts of tender, succulent, flavoursome pulled pork with a refreshing slaw, spanish onions and rocket and house made barbeque sauce. How can you not be drooling right now? This baby was only $10 and it has got to be one of the best pulled pork burgers I’ve ever had. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve had one before so in saying that, it’s the best pulled pork burger I have had!! The pork melted in your mouth. The coleslaw was fresh and crunchy which offset the rich flavour of the pork and allowed you to eat the whole burger (or I did at least). It’s not a good burger if the juices don’t trail down your hands and wrists. Boy were my hands covered in that house barbeque sauce. It was so good that I was happy to lick all visible traces of that sauce. Finger lickin’ good as some say!
It was definitely one of the better lunches I’ve had around the city, and two thumbs up on the value and price. It sounds so ridiculous that you get such a good burger/sandwich a mere $10 in the city. It’s no wonder why Momo Brasserie had to create a takeout menu - there was such a high demand for it.
Being a huge fan of Man VS Food, I can’t wait to try the Reuben Sandwich or even just the pastrami. Oohhhhhh my word, as Adam Richman would say.
Philly Cheese Steak $11
This is new to the take out menu as it’s not on the online version so when I saw it in store I went yep – that’s mine. Plenty of thinly sliced grass fed scotch fillet with fried (almost caramelised) onions and provolone, mozzarella and cheddar cheese lay on a long sourdough roll.
It is beasty and very tasty! You cannot pick the thing up without the filling falling out. Dare I say it but there was probably a little too much meat for me to enjoy the philly cheese steak for what it was, but in saying that, it’s definitely great value and one hell of a sub!
NY Pastrami on toasted rye $10
Momo Brasserie make their pastrami in house from their own special and unique recipe. It takes 5 days to create the flavoured delicacy. It starts with pickled beef brisket rubbed with a special blend of herbs and spices marinated for 3 days. It is then hot smoked with hickory wood.
Here warm pastrami is served on toasted rye with slaw and mustard. The pastrami itself has such an incredible depth of flavour – it was smokey, it was fragrant, it was delicious. You definitely won’t be able to get that anywhere else. Another messy sandwich to eat and whether you eat it together or separately (I’m talking about the pastrami here), let me tell you it’s all worth it.
