Has anyone noticed that I can be quite the glutton sometimes? Yes, it was quite a while ago yet I've been a bit hesitant to "prove" this with an actual post. Case in point: San Diego Burger Week. How many $5 burgers can one eat in a period of ten days? Burger, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways, or rather, visits!
Small Bar - To start the week off, there was the Sunrise Burger... Sausage flavored popped into mind on first bite...
Burger much? You could have gone CRAZY during San Diego Burger Week! San Diego CityBeat ran this burger promo that included 50+ restaurants with... FIVE DOLLAR BURGERS! Not fast food five dollars but gourmet must get in my belly kinda burgers. Foodie blogger that I am, I took this as a challenge... how would this year compare to last year's San Diego burger week? You're about to find out!
On Friday, the first day of the promo, Dennis was still recovering from being sick so we went local. It's been years since we last visited Callahans but this seemed reason enough.
We started with the Burger in a Basket combo with half fries/half tots plus a choice of beer. The burger itself was rather simple though and ketchup became my add-on. The steak fries are a little thick and clunkier than I prefer but tator tots disappeared rapidly. I'm a sucker for tots I found. I'm still digging the blueberry wheat beer here too.
Dennis ordered the Club Callahan (12.59) and added a cup of Jalapeno Beer Cheese Soup (0.99). He wasn't completely ready to burger at this point but he would be soon...
10 days to dine and multiple burgers later, I think I've gotten a pretty good taste of San Diego Burger Week! After I heard about it on twitter from Mary (This Tasty Life), I got to work right away figuring out where I should go into a detailed spreadsheet. So many options and most were new places for me! I even thought about burger hopping, with food map and everything!
This is my North Park map, centered around the intersection of University and 30th St! The whole trek is only a mile, but I didn't think we could hit that many places in one night!
And now it begins... the rundown of our burger tasting adventure (sequential order).
