Mikey's Burger on Ludlow
After a show at the Living Room, I was walking down Ludlow, when I passed by this place, a little pocket of a place on the east side of the street. On an impulse, I stopped in.
The menu is as small as the place:
(I didn't find an official site).
I bought "The Mikey" burger and ate it as I walked to the subway.
And a pretty splendid burger it was, plenty juicy and tasty; I made full use of the napkins I had.

I am by no means a burger connoisseur, but I tried Mikey's tonight and really enjoyed it.
I ordered the BLT burger with cheese, which is a hamburger with chinese bacon, kewpie mayo, lettuce and tomato. The burger itself was juicy and flavorful on its own. But the bacon and kewpie made it a little different than just your average burger. The flavors all worked together very nicely - and the lettuce and tomato were crisp and bright and fresh.
The fires are thin cut with the skin on, and in my opinion, salted to perfection. They were a little soggy, but I did take out - so I'm thinking they make have gotten a little soggy on during the walk home.
Also not a burger connoisseur but I thought the burger was tasty. Fries were good too (ate in the restaurant).
Finally made it back there last month (yes, it's been that long) and had a duck burger, with a sort of plum sauce on it (or so my flaky memory recalls). Not sweet, which (to me) is a GOOD thing; very good, overall. Wish I could get here more often.
