Let me give you a small insight before we begin the journey. This seed was sown during tea talks in the office and here it is, the first chapter of our brand new Edition.
We try a new restaurant/cafe every weekend. This weekend it was the big burger place CHERRY TOMATO in Margao with mouth-watering Burgers and savory dishes. One tends to forget the food pictures once their food hits the table.
We tried a few different burgers on the list and they have authentic and different names. Maneater Reloaded, Rockstar, Atom Bomb XXX Hot, Spicy Paneer Burger were the ones we tried during our burger expedition, let me explain to you the ones you must try when you visit.
This is a multi-layered huge finger-licking burger with a Triple Grilled Stack of chicken along with cheese, bacon, tomatoes, jalapenos, and Mexican chili sauce served with French Fries which adds to the beauty of the burger. Just one burger will make you feel full with a satisfying eagerness to always come back and try it yet again. The different layers excite you to eat the entire burger in one go, on the other hand, you do not want the burger to be finished. The sauces are delicious and the grilled patty is an add on.
Dog Mash is one of the mouthwatering dishes which includes graciously grilled hot dogs served with cheese mash, fused with mashed potato. What makes it stupendous is the mushroom BBQ sauce over it. It is garnished with fresh mint leaves which indeed gives it a wonderful look and taste. The sausages along with mashed potatoes are so soft that you would enjoy cutting it with a knife. Once you get your hands on it, you would only look at the same and finish it off. The BBQ sauce adds a unique taste to the dipped sausages. The quantity is pretty good for a person but would not make your tummy full, you’ll have to go for something else if you’re devouring food.
