That may sound like I’m belittling the classic appetizer and that couldn’t be farther from the truth especially when the snails come with parsley and shallot butter.
Toasted rounds of bread do their best to soak up the butter, but there’s just too much richness for one piece of bread to contain.
A hamburger topped with comte cheese, a small mountain of salted French fries, and a choice of ketchup or Dijon aioli, what more could you ask for?
Made from the kitchen’s steak trimmings, the Hamburger Fonfon was a stab at hamburger perfection. There was a well seasoned crust that concealed a river of greasy, beefy juices.
The first bite opened the floodgates for juiciness and each subsequent bite revealed a heavily seared crust with an amazing medium rare interior. House ground beef of high quality trimmings, simple salt and pepper seasoning, a toasted bun, and an ever so slightly strong slice of melted comte cheese, the Hamburger Fonfon was a slice of cheeseburger nirvana.
