by chloe – the classic burger


Name: The Classic Burger
Location: by CHLOE, 60 W 22nd St, New York, NY 10010 (multiple locations in NYC & across the country)
Protein: Tempeh-lentil-chia-walnut patty
Bun: Orwasher’s potato bun
Toppings: Pickles, red onion, lettuce, beet ketchup, and special sauce
Burger to Bun Ratio: Good, width wise. There was more bun to burger thickness-wise.
Accompaniments: Nothing (Air baked fries are $4.25 extra)
Price: $9.95


Notes, etc.:
The burger texture is almost like a black bean patty, as it was slightly soft. This texture made it slightly messy, since it would slide to one side every time I took a bite. The potato bun was light and airy, which was great since the thickness ratio of bun to burger was high. The overall flavor was good, once I had a taste of the secret sauce which brought it all together. The burger I had that day unfortunately only had it concentrated on one side of it. The beet ketchup also added a nice sweetness to it.

The air baked fries were so-so. They were crispier than normal fries, but not burnt. Some fries were great and some were soft/soggy.

I’d definitely get the burger again, but will pass on the fries.

Notes, etc.:
The burger was cooked to my liking at medium-rare (I guess it was more on the medium side though) and was very juicy, messy, and tasty. The brioche bun was toasted and surprisingly held together throughout consumption.

At $2.99 extra, you get seasoned and satisfactory shoestring fries. I could probably go without them next time.

Schnippers serves a great fast food style burger. If you get sad from the crazy long line at Shake Shack, keep heading down 23rd to get your burger fix.
