I love burgers and I am always curious to try something different from a classic cheeseburger. Few years ago, I discovered the Mac and Cheese burger at The Ainsworth in Chelsea, that I still consider the best of its kind so far, not that there are many places proposing a burger smothered with a good mac and cheese. As there is a Ainsworth in Hoboken, Jodi and I decided to go for brunch, early enough to see the end of the soccer World Cup game between France and Argentina (4-3 with a victory for France). The place was not crowded, that was great as I like a quiet environment when I eat and it seems that most of the people were routing for my country of origin. Anyway, back to the burger: I was set to have the Mac and cheese one although they have a few that are interesting like the Breakfast Burger, made with a house made sausage blend patty, cheddar, bacon, sunny side up egg, hollandaise in a brioche bun. And you know what: it was delicious!

The burger was composed of a panko crusted mac & cheese patty in the bottom, a beef patty, some mac & cheese in a sesame bun. The patty was cooked medium-rare, and was quite juicy. It was literally smothered by this awesome mac and cheese they make, that had a superb sharpness, prompting me to think that they are putting parmesan in it. And it is not like they put a little bit of it: there is quite a lot. Another great component is the panko crusted Mac and cheese patty in the bottom that adds a bit of crunch and brings a bit the taste of fried food to the whole thing. I should mention that the burger was served with French fries that were good, but I admit that, considering how filling the burger was, I barely ate them.

Jodi on her side got a healthier choice: the Egg White Omelet, stuffed with roasted cherry tomato, spinach, avocado and mozzarella.

Needless to say that when ordering that Mac and cheese burger, you'd better forget about dessert: it is so filling that a good walk is necessary after that...

Enjoy (I did)!
