Yummy'z Kitchen - Croissant Burger and Fresh Cut Fries
Location: 1711 Westhiemer Rd
Date: December 11, 2013
It's getting hard to find a truck in the Montrose these days in the evenings, all the trucks seems to be hanging out at the food parks. Fortunately for me, Yummy'z was at a new location Wednesday night.
A giant 1/2 pound seasoned patty cooked when you order it. Topped with a generous amount of bacon and cheese. Lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and Yummy'z sauce finish the burger. Overall this is a high quality burger, big and tasty. The unique Yummy'z spin on this is the colossal toasted croissant used as a bun for this burger. A classic croissant is layered flaky pastry and doesn't usually have the structure to hold a big sandwich together. In this case the beef patty itself provides the backbone for the burger, then the croissant becomes the wrapper of the package. This is one of the better alternate burger buns I've tried. I like it and will have it again. Synopsis: Yummy'z makes a yummy burger big enough for two!
Freshly cut fries cut from large potatoes and cut thin shoestring style. The thin cut is a good idea, they can be fried up and served hot and crispy by the order in a reasonable amount of time. Mine where hot and crispy, but they don't stay crispy very long. I don't think that's any fault of Yummy'z though, just the nature of a fresh natural fry. They are some of the better fries I've had lately. Synopsis: eat'em while they're hot!
