|Blue Elk Burger with Fries|
During my first weekend in New York, the boyfie took me to Bareburger in Hartsdale for late dinner.
Bareburger is a burger chain that serves organic and all-natural ingredients. All their meats are free -range, pasture-rasied, antibiotic-free, gluten-free and hormone-free.
For starters, we shared a serving of Crispy Brussel Sprouts ($6.85 or Php 322) and glasses of Root Beer Floats.

The Crispy Brussel Sprouts is a little bitter, however, it is complemented by the grated manchego cheese and a squeeze of lemon. The huge glass of root beer float helps too.
Bareburger is known for serving rare meats for burger patties, this is the same reason why the boyfie brought me here, so might as well try a meat I haven't eaten before. I ordered the Blue Elk Burger ($12.95 or Php 608.65) while he chose to have the County Fair Burger ($12.95 or Php 608.65).

The Blue Elk Burger has elk patty, amish blue cheese, country bacon, stout onions and tomato fig jam on sprout bun while the Country Fair Burger has bison patty, aged cheddar, dill pickles, red onions, tomatoes, green leaf and mayo on brioche bun. Both elk and bison meats are considered exotic and healthy meats.
The elk burger tasted almost like beef but a little less gamey. I like its taste combine with the amish blue and the country bacon which brings a stronger and a bit saltier flavor to the burger. I had a bit of the boyfie's bison burger and thought that bison tasted like a richer version of beef, so I can say that we both had excellent choices.
Other than elk and bison, Bareburger also serves turkey, duck, wild boar, veggie and beef burgers.
I highly recommend Bareburger if you want to be a bit adventurous, or you'd love organic food. I admire brands like Bareburger who try their best to go beyond the usual and serve more than what is expected.
I would love to go back and try more exotic burgers next time. :)
