This burger was super messy, but totally worth it! I wish that the egg hadn’t broken before I could bite into it though. Regardless, the burger tasted great and went down easily!

Now this is my kind of salad! What’s not to love? You’ve got crab, prawns, bacon, eggs, blue cheese, and avocado. I’m in heaven! Even though I wasn’t feeling it at first, the service was actually really friendly (although M.I.A. at times).

Maybe I’m just not a salad person, but this dish was lost on me. I guess I can appreciate the fresh ingredients and the techniques used to create all the components, but I still wasn’t satisfied eating this salad. To each his own…
