After watching the Chicago based TV show “Check Please” I was able to find what I would call an orgasmic cheeseburger. First let me explain, their are certain things in this world I simply LOVE and good food is one them. Good food doesn’t have to be exotic or expensive some times simple can also be amazing. Today I found a gem in Evanston, Illinois a hamburger joint called Edzo’s …. I drove 30 minutes each way to get there but it was worth every minute.
A gourmet burger is kind of the new craze these days. However, what I love about a good burger is that with a little care and patience anyone can do it. The added touches that a chef provides just manages to take them to the next level. Ed (the chef and owner of Edzo’s) manages to make a good burger, GREAT! Edzo’s grinds its own beef in house, this makes your burger fresh, juicy with an amazing beefy flavor. What I would call LOVELY…..You also have the option of updgrading to beef from a particular farm. There’s something about knowing where my burger lived (and died obviously) that I just adore.
I didn’t get exotic this time I wanted to see what the staple Char burger had to offer. So I ordered my get-over-that-idiot-happy-meal….
Char burger & Cheese fries!!
I ordered this burger cooked medium rare, topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, fried egg, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato and ketchup. It was abosutely to die for (or perhaps from?) I couldn’t eat it all since the burger starts with 8ounces of beef to begin with. The fries were freshly cut, crispy and topped with Mertz cheddar cheese…just like I like em!! Sooooo bad yet Soooooo good!
I’m not a big Milkshake chic but the Milkshakes here are divine with some really interesting ingredients….I will be checking these out next time I head back there!
I had a blast….drowned my “still single blues” in a delightful pile of cheesefries….. Of course today I’m headed to the gym but again no regrets no excuses!!
Lesson Learned: The perfect cheeseburger and cheesefries can fulfill almost every desire (at least while your eating them!!)
