after much hullabalooh from friends & co-workers, we finally went for an inaugural taste-test sunday night.
the fun thing about ray’s is the array of special cheeses and toppings you can pile on, like epoisse, foie gras, and applewood smoked bacon. i was quite torn between the muenster and imported double-cream brie cheeses, but quite predictably fell for the brie…with charred jalapenos on top. mmmmmm. true to their reputation, the patties are JUICY. susan and i both asked for medium rare but hers was bloodier, much pinker and fleshier. hmpf.
but think twice before you get the roasted garlic topping. dunno where they grow their garlic but you’ll be emitting like it for ~24 hours after ingestion.
do enjoy the juicy cob o’ corn and a watermelon slice though that come with the burger. pretty frickin juicy meal all around if you ask me.
we toted our take-out cartons to the theater room in our apartment where we topped our burgers off with a screening of Shaun of the Dead. nothing like a good zombie movie to wash down the beef. especially the scene where david gets his intestines ripped out of his gut by overzealous zombies.
