Blogging has been pretty slow for me recently with life just being a bit on the hectic side. I haven’t been eating out much on a very general basis and have a huge list of places I fancy trying. El Perro Negro shot right up that list when a photo of a certain Reuben-inspired burger popped up on my social media. I HAD to try it.
The small but perfectly formed restaurant is found on the west end of Argyle Street and sits directly on the end of the road leading down to The Hydro…ten guesses where I’ll be going after my next gig?!
We each ordered a burger and fries with the truffle mayo and a side of wings between us. The truffle mayo is absolutely gorgeous and I would quite frankly put it on anything! The fries are my ideal too – skin on, skinny cut but not so skinny that you lose the nice fluffy centre, and cooked to crispy perfection.
My friend ordered the restaurant’s namesake burger (a theme with my friends in recent burger blogs!) which he thoroughly enjoyed. The beef patty was topped with bone marrow butter (the name alone makes me drool), burger cheese, black pudding, caramelised onion, pickles and burger sauce. He totally enjoyed it, and whilst he wouldn’t necessarily remove the black pudding, he said the burger would’ve been delicious both with it and without it.
And here was my order. It looked and tasted even better than I imagined it. I didn’t even realise there was a beef patty involved when I ordered it, and I was worried it would be too much…..it wasn’t. It was perfect. The burger was topped with dat sexy bone marrow butter, plenty Swiss cheese, pastrami, pickles and American mustard. It was absolutely stunning and I can’t tell you when I last enjoyed a burger this much.
Buffalo Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Sauce
One thing I miss terribly about Burger Meats Bun is the chicken wings. I used to order one of each type instead of a burger sometimes. If you’re like me and loved their wings: you’ll love these because it was like traveling back in time. Beautifully tender chicken with a rich and spicy glaze. Perfect.
I don’t think I need to say much more: I bloody loved it. By far the best burger in town.
