Waiheke Island Yacht Club, San Francisco CA

Omg, this burger was killer! If this is what all New Zealand burgers are like, I need to visit NZ soon! The patty was juicy and flavorful, and all the toppings were delicious. The burger was huge so I just rolled up my sleeves and got down and dirty with it. I don’t care what anybody say, but I’m a fan of eggs on burgers and this sunny side up egg was a thing of beauty. I was also delighted by the kikorangi blue cheese which I’d never had before. It was spread on the top bun and I initially thought that it was some kind of decadent pate spread because it was so rich and delicious, NOMS!

This pop-up restaurant was really cool, partially because everyone who worked there was Kiwi and their accents rock, lol! Actually the cocktails and food were awesome so they were definitely doing things right. Add to that a relaxed setting on a SF Bay pier and you have a winner!
