Build your own burger. That is The Counter way. You sit down and fill out a form. Yes. You build your own burger and they bring it to you exactly how you want it. You want eggs? You got it. You want a different kind of cheese? You don’t want pickles? That’s cool. The Counter lets you fill out a form, with many ingredients to choose from, and that is how they bring it to you.
My perfect burger was easily made. I had sprouts, garlic aoili, sprouts, greens, and you can’t forget the runny egg. I had my patty cooked to a perfect medium rare. The juices were flowing all over the plate. It made the bottom bun a bit soggy, but that was fine by me. Each bite was such a flavorful, nicely balanced mouthful. Sometimes, I like to think the burger is good because I chose those ingredients to be together. It makes the customer feel good, that the burger was their creation.
The parmasan fries were alright. I think I will stick with the regular fries next time. After a while, the parmasan cheese cooled off and just formed a web of shredded cheese over the fries. Though, it did taste really good, I would have liked it to be more crispy.
The chocolate shake was really creamy and delicious. What is better than eating burgers and fries with a nice milk shake? I even busted a Wendy’s and dipped some of the dry fries into the milk shake. Amazing.
The second burger was a combination made by my girlfriend. It was special because it had double onions — grilled onions, and onion strings. The burger also had chipotle mayo and made it more of a south western burger. The taste was rich and flavorful, a bit intense, but still very good.
Both burgers were delicious — because we got it exactly how we wanted it. This reminds me of a Slaters 50/50 where they also let you fill out a form of how you want your burger. Nonetheless, The Counter wants us to have our burger the way we want it. No set menus or pre-decided ingredients — You get what you want, and how you want it. Simple. Delicious.
