The Ravenous Pig - review

One of my favorite parts of traveling back to Orlando, Florida is going to the Ravenous Pig gastropub in Winter Park.  Eating their burger was one of my last meals in Florida before making the move up to Charlotte, North Carolina back in 2010 so this restaurant holds a special place in my heart.  Or should I say this burgers holds a special place in my stomach?

On Friday night Ryan and I were joined by my friend Katie and her fiance Chris to dine at this restaurant.  We all ordered the same thing ... the Pub Burger.  Although some might think the $13 price tag is slightly steep for a burger, the high quality product does not disappoint.

Pub Burger    13. 
1855 angus beef, caramelized onion, buttermilk bleu cheese, truffle fries

I ordered my burger medium cooked and it came out juicy and delicious.  I did not add any ketchup or other condiment to the burger because the buttermilk blue cheese that topped the burger gave it enough flavor.
Each fry was dipped in a side of garlic aioli (unpictured since the server had to get me some from the kitchen).  The shoestring french fries are the perfect compliment to this burger.

This is definitely one of the best burgers I have ever had, in any state.  I look forward to many more Florida visits to see my dear friends and to naturally have many more pub burgers.
