The Eatery, that cool and casual restaurant in West Sacramento, is at it again -- it already has an excellent burger, but it's going over the top with this new creation. Sounds incredible, from the meat (a blend of cuts ground in house) to the aioli (with peanut butter). A portion of sales today goes to charity.
Here's how they're describing it on Facebook. (I don't know this "Burger Junkies" guy who is referenced, though I have interacted with him on Twitter. He clearly A) loves burgers and B) has no plans to live past 40.):
Dreams of our first themed burger on Tuesday. Created a themed "junky burger" for the great blog burgerjunkies.com we took guidance from Rodney, the blogger, and then just listened and went to work. What we came up with is a truly fine burger.
Here's what is going into it;
One toasted homemade burger bun, peanut butter & chipotle aioli, half pound house ground burger (ribeye, chuck & brisket), BBQ cured pork belly confit (12 hours in a warm lard jacuzzi), bravo chipotle cheddar, over easy egg. Served with fries and lettuce, tomato & onion on the side. $13
We are donating $1 for every burger sold Tuesday (not just the special) to the sacramento make a wish foundation too.
If you stop in and give this burger a try, don't forget to try the amazing "disco fries." You might as well hit all the food groups! For more on The Eatery, check out what we wrote when Tim Newbold tackled the double burger and the disco fries (and lived to tell about it).
