A new development in my pregnancy has been a love of red meat and although I’ve always loved a good burger, something about them has been super tempting to me as of late. Recently when out with friends, I commented that we should start a “Burger Crawl” and try all the best ones we could find. At first I was met with laughter but pretty soon we scheduled our first stop, at my request. This burger is my current favourite in Regina and I wanted everyone else to try it too. I mean, look at that thing. She will be tough to beat, that’s for sure.
The Burger: The “Skirt” Burger
The Bun: Brioche, super fresh but holds up well.
The Patty: Thick, ground sirloin, perfectly seasoned, juicy without being greasy, slight char on the outside.
The Cheese: Birmingham’s puts a mound of grated cheddar on the patty and covers it with a lid to melt it onto the burger. This fries the cheese that falls in the pan into a crispy “skirt”. It adds great texture.
The Sauce: “Burger” sauce.
The Veggies: Pickles, tomato, onion and shaved lettuce.
The Extras: A woven sheet of bacon. This works to ensure you get bacon in every bite.
The Side: V-Chips; super thin and crispy potato chips soaked in vodka and then deep fried. Try them with dip!
The Price: $14.95
The Place: Birmingham’s Vodka & Ale House, 2635 Star Lite Street, Regina
