I was given the recommendation to try out The Pearl District's location Little Big Burger in Portland Oregon from the owner of Miss Hannah's Gourmet Popcorn. Burgers must be the new Yogurt shop because these place are popping up left and right. French Fries, being high on my list of splurge cravings, are a must consideration when choosing a hamburger place. We got there right opening lunch so the cooks were just firing up the grill. It must get busy because about 5 cooks appear out of the back room once it opened. Friendly girl at the counter welcomes us as we take a look at the simple and reasonably priced menu, love those kind. The restaurant is crisp and clean, plenty of seating and even a place to sit at the counter, which I always like as it makes me feel like I'm in an episode of "Happy Days" minus the Fonz.
We step up to the counter and my husband says "I'll try your veggie burger" which my head did a spin knowing he was just about to break the rules of our first visit. He apparently did not read the fine lines of tasting adventures 101 article 14 that reads :Participants must AT ALL TIMES order the main menu item that the establishment is known for, on the second visit you may stray from the menu to more unique items. THANKFULLY, I was there and not using the restroom or something, and I quickly corrected his behavior as he realized his technical foul. There is disclaimer on the menu that all burgers are cooked to medium which means they have a little pink in the middle. I quickly ordered medium well, which I'm really grateful I did after seeing my husband's medium pink burger. We both ordered the Cheeseburger and shared the small order of fries which was actually a huge order of fries spilling out in the bag. I love it when I think we are done with the fries only to find a few more hiding in the bag under the napkins.. that is a close second to finding a $20 bill in my pants pocket.
