“I know, I know, Cheeseburger Week is over tonight, but there is still time to get over to the Terrace at the Langham for their special Green Chile Cheeseburger. My feeling is that a cheeseburger is only as good as the sum of its parts.” The sum of the Green Chile Cheeseburger is 100! Starting with a soft potato bun, the burger includes freshly ground sirloin, roasted Hatch chile’s (no, sissy-pants they are not spicy), applewood smoked bacon (and lots of it), Cheddar cheese, grilled onions and cilantro garlic sauce.
Is your mouth watering? Mine was as I bit down through the layers of flavor. The grilled onions were sweet with a bit of a crunch, the Cheddar cheese was sharp and rich, the chilies added a bit of a bite without overpowering the burger and the bacon, what’s not to like? Added to this was a generous basket of thin, crispy, fries, burger heaven.
But if you can’t make it for the special Green Chile Cheeseburger you can always order the Terrace Burger which is a taste treat in and of itself. A Brioche bun, secret sauce, onion caramel, lettuce, tomato and aged Cheddar, this burger will put a hitch in your get-along. It’s also served with hot, crispy fries and is available for lunch or dinner (it is not specifically on the dinner menu, just ask your waiter for it).
So get thee hence and make it to the Terrace Restaurant at the Langham for their fabulous Green Chile Cheeseburger or any other time for their Terrace Burger.
