|Cheeseburger and Shoestring Fries, Coda Boston|
|Cheeseburger, Coda Boston|
+ The burger bun was good. Very flavorful, with flecks of black pepper
+ There was a good amount of char on the outside, creating a nice crispy crust that crackled as I bit into it
+ Tomatoes were no where to be found on the burger (it's November, they shouldn't be!)
|Handcut Shoestring Fries, Coda Boston|
+ The fries made the meal. Delicate little strips of potato, they were freshly fried, perfectly salted and ridiculously addictive
+ The theme song to MASH was playing as we ate our burgers. I don't know why this is a pro, but to me, it was hilarious. When have you ever heard the theme song to MASH being played while you were eating your burger?
+ The burger was reasonably priced at $10
And now for the drawbacks of the burger...
- The biggest offense was that I ordered my burger medium rare and it came out medium well. Not a spot of pink to be found. This made for a pretty dry burger. Bummer.
- The burger didn't fit the bun. This made for extra breading around the edges of the burger.
- There wasn't enough cheese. It just seemed like one little piece of cheddar was melted on top and I couldn't even taste it. A good cheeseburger should be oozing with melty cheese!
Even though it seems this spot isn't the home of the best burger in Boston, I still would recommend this place. The atmosphere is comfortably quaint, the prices are extremely reasonable (especially for where it's located) and the service is friendly.
Sadly there won't be a burger Friday post this week with the holidays (I suggested a turkey burger but Richard wouldn't hear of it) but watch out for the first burger of December! We've been tossing around a lot of good candidates and I think it's going to be a good one...there's a rather heated debate brewing on grilled vs. griddled burger...care to weigh in??
