Peculiar Rabbit

on Friday I ran another one of my treadmill 5k's while Mason hung out in daycare at the YMCA.

I love that Mason was playing with the older girls ... or at least staring at them while they played. 

I knew I wanted a burger for dinner, so I suggested to Ryan that we walk to a local restaurant for dinner.  I hadn't tried the burger yet at the Peculiar Rabbit so our choice for dining location had been made.

I ordered the Peculiar burger with a side of fries:

ground CAB beef, Benton’s bacon, Mornay sauce,
fried farm egg, lettuce, tomato, toasted brioche bun

Oh boy was this burger messy to eat!  Between the Mornay sauce (which I had to idea what it was when I ordered this burger) and the over easy egg, there was just sauce dripping down my hands.  I couldn't put down my burger for fear of it completely falling apart.  

So I ate it - quickly.  And I wasn't disappointed in the taste of the meat at all.  I did have a few issues though, mainly with the size of the burger.  I liked it and wanted more of it and was sad that it was such a small size compared to other cheeseburgers that are served locally.  I would reduce the portion size of french fries in exchange for a larger burger patty.

Oh and they can do without the Mornay sauce ... from wikipedia:

A Mornay sauce is a Béchamel sauce with shredded or grated cheese added. Usually, it consists of half Gruyère and half Parmesan cheese, though some variations use different combinations of Gruyère, Emmental cheese, or white Cheddar

Or better yet make it actually taste like CHEESE sauce.  It lacked any flavor whatsoever.  Or just smack a slice of cheddar directly onto the burger patty.  Then we're talking!

It was definitely a tasty burger, although much messier than I've experienced elsewhere.  I would order this again, hold the mornay sauce, add a slice of any cheese they've got.  Glad this place is within walking distance from my house.
