Delicious Dinner, "Gourmet Hamburger"

Most people say you should never order hamburgers or anything made with chopped/minced meat out in a restaurant, because you never know what's actually in the meat.  There are a few restaurants that pride themselves and please their customers by grinding the meat in their own kitchen.

HaGov, The Lion's Den, the kosher sports bar & grill on 5 Yoel Solomon Street is one of the few places that serve real home-ground meat in their hamburgers.  My eating partner and I both ordered hamburgers.  He had the Julio, which includes a sunnyside up egg and I had a different one.  I can't remember the name. 

I told them to "hold the bun," since I try not to eat bread, and both of us requested salad instead of chips aka french fries.  It was a delicious and satisfying meal.

I once had visitors from Australia. They came to my office, and I took them to the cafeteria. (They were not Jewish. There were no kashruth issues.) The wife ordered a hamburger with a fried egg on top. I had never seen such a thing.

I had to try it, and I assure you that I found wonderful. If I'm eating it in a sandwich, I would ask that the egg be "over and broke." Yum.

Leora, it sure was.
Ed, I don't know the source, but it's on HaGov's new menu. My hamburger had slices of roastbeef.
