another best burger nominee: The Whole Ox
anybody try it yet? had one earlier this week, and it was a good one.
dry-aged hawaiian beef (menu says its served medium), carmelized onion, caper ailoi, soft onion roll. ~10 bucks
why does this not come with cheese? i added gruyere (50 cents) and it was a perfect match, generously melted on the burger. the burger itself is a probably around a 6 oz patty...came with a modest serving of carmelized red onion that turned out to be a bit unwieldy - really my only complaint about the burger....not easy to bite completely through them, so when my teeth latched onto the onion many of them came out, leaving me to restuff 'em back in. i gotta hand it to them, though --- this was the juiciest burger i've had in honolulu. fantastic BEEFiness, now, my burger was arguably medium in the middle, but overall i think they slightly overcooked it to medium well. i may have returned it for a new one at other places (i'd prefer medium rare, but i'm not sure they'd oblige given that the menu states they serve it medium) but this thing still managed to be crazy juicy and flavorful so i really didnt care. juicy levels hint that they are using a nice fatty grind of beef -- just the way a burger should be. highly recommend this burger in its simplicity, stoked to return for another....
