The 2018 Twin Cities Burger Battle is in the books and it certainly was another hit for all of us burger lovers who were able to attend. Battle #5 certainly provided some incredibly delicious and brilliant burger creations. These restaurants just keep raising the burger bar each and every year and they certainly prove to us that the burger is still King in the Twin Cities! The best part of course is the amount of the money raised that goes to The Sanneh Foundation, who is helping inner city kids.
It was a cloudy, cool and windy day, but that certainly couldn’t stop the burger lovers from coming out and seeing what these restaurants had in store for them. They certainly delivered! Congratulations to the winners!
The People’s Choice winner was B-52 Burgers and Brew with “The Carlton”. Fresh Hereford beef, Gruyere cheese, arugula, jalapeno bacon jam and herb mayo.
The Judge’s pick was The Suburban with their “Chimi My Churri”. Certified angus beef, mango cilantro chimichurri, sweet chile sauce, American cheese bacon and raw onion.
There were so many good burgers, but my vote went to Herbies on the Park for their Cambozola Burger. Cambozola is a brie style bleu cheese. It also featured braised duck, pepper jam and house made pickles on a pretzel bun.
Some of my other favorites besides the winners, were Twin Cites 400 Tavern, Wild Boar, Park Tavern and Paddy Shack.
Make a note to clear a Saturday in May next year. This is the Biggest Burger event of the year! I’m hooked!
