I love a good burger, like love. The unfortunate thing is that: though you often expect this standard fare to be good, sometimes it’s unpalatable; you have a dry patty or a bun that tastes like sawdust. And then, there’s the burger at Trapeze restaurant at the Casino, which is none of these things.
I went with a large group a couple months back, eight of us in fact, and the food and the service was great. We started the night with a bunch of appetizers: bruschetta, nachos and calamari that were all pretty good, though I only had a bite of each because I was saving room for the burger. The apps were gone in an instant.
For my meal, I ordered the Mozzarella and mushroom burger with a side spinach salad. I love the spinach salad at Trapeze, and I’ve had a large one several times since. With a generous helping of spinach, it’s dressed with marinated butternut squash, carrot ribbons, red pepper strips and a tangy goat cheese – I usually get the cilantro ginger vinaigrette on the side.
Anyway, on to the burger. As I said above, it was delicious; the juicy patty was topped with a generous portion of melty cheese and succulent fried mushrooms. Add to that, the usual fare of lettuce, tomato, onion and a pickle spear, the burger was filling and satisfying.
This was a tasty meal indeed. We finished the night off by sharing some awesome desserts: chocolate cake and a yummy blueberry-based one too. I only had a couple bites of those as well; I was full, but I had to try them…for research purposes, of course! 😉
