I was stuck in the office yesterday and needed a burger to lift my spirits. I didn’t want to travel far and remembered that Molly Malloy’s in the Reading Terminal Market has a burger I haven’t had yet.
The All Beef Burger sits between a brioche bun and comes topped with Boston lettuce, beefsteak tomatoes, and your choice of cheese (I went with cheddar). I added caramelized onions and bacon for extra. The burger was overcooked to a medium, but was juicy. Unfortunately, I felt the meat itself lacked flavor. Most of the savoriness of the burger came solely from the bacon. On the bright side, the meat was the proper size for the bun and the house cut fries were tasty.
The add on options sound pretty awesome and I bet they’d be a great addition on the burger when it’s seasoned more. Just to name a few: pickled onion, tomato jam, apple onion compote.
