Angel: Feb 10th was the Chinese New year and Feb 12 was Mardi Gras. Which do we celebrate? BOTH! Well, sort of. Our first stop wasn’t quite Chinese food (we are burger lovers, after all), it was an American pub grub with an Asian flare, Social Eatz. It’s a small midtown spot with a small [...]
Angel: While thinking of our new adventures, we stopped at our beer heaven, DeCiccos in Brewster, NY (as we wrote about here). There, we found my new love, Mikkelle’s Chipotle Porter. After announcing it to my beer loving friends, one friend from the Southwest decided to up the ante and mailed me a 6-pack of [...]
Angel: I recently enjoyed Chinese food and my fortune cookie said, “You are a bundle of energy, always on the go.” I’m not sure about the energy part, but, yes, I’m always on the go. This past week i have been in sunny California, at the Terranea Resort. I love to travel and I love [...]
Angel: The annual NY Best Burger Contest is back and we, at 50 Burgers Or Bust, have been asked to judge again. How it works: Starting Feb 1st and ending on March 15th, you vote for your favorite burger in NY state (look for the link in next week’s post!). Votes will be tailed and [...]
Angel: We decided to visit my cousin at Hofstra University and take him on a burger adventure, to Burger Bites. Their clam is that they recreate your backyard burger, which, being the middle of winter, I appreciated… now, if it were the middle of summer, I might wonder. With 3.5 stars from Yelp, my hopes [...]
As one more year comes to a close, we took another hard look and put together the best burger and a few memorable places and experiences we’ve enjoyed in 2012.
Angel: I learned in school that sweet, salty, bitter, and sour are the regions of your tongue. I have come to find out that, a fifth region has been discovered, and it could explain why I like Umami (named after the savory taste) in Croton, NY (www.umamicafe.com) so much.
Sean: The Spotted Pig has been on our list since day one, but, for one reason or another, has always eluded us.
Sean: Over the past year, any time we found ourselves in need of a burger, but without a place in mind, we’ve looked to the August 2011 edition of Hudson Valley Magazine for guidance and inspiration. It has led us to some incredible spots and, unfortunately, some establishments that were memorable for the wrong reasons. [...]
We apologize that, due to technical issues, there was no post last week. Sean: We first visited Emma’s a few months ago. We needed a quick ‘after work’ stop and ‘Yelpers’ seemed to enjoy it.
