Burger Joint
“The main attraction at this Eastern European restaurant in South Slope is the deep fried original burger: a juicy patty plus funky Allgauer Emmentaller cheese, mustard, and a seasonal pickled veggie gets swaddled in dough. The whole thing is dunked in the fryer, accompanied by steak-cut fries or salad. (Dip into sweet beet ketchup, too.) The burger is certainly a filling solo act, but for a gut-busting experience, add on a half order of Halusky, hand-cut potato noodles with Bryndza cheese and bacon morsels. The whole menu goes heavy on meat and potato variations, like Hungarian beef goulash, apple-raisin latkes, and turnip and squash-stuffed pierogis. It also offers an extensive range of ciders and beers.”
