07 Aug The Queens Head Battle of the Burg(er) 2017
Can you believe that it’s already August? Summer always flies by. August also marks the sixth annual Battle of the Burg(er) contest! Like last year, restaurants in the Grand Central District are bringing out their best between two buns for this month-long competition. Some new contenders have shown up to the scene and The Queens Head is bringing in a new entry!
For those unfamiliar, burger enthusiasts of St. Pete are encouraged to hit up their favorite participating hotspots in the GCD and vote for their favorite. These qualifying burgers are not your typical patties.
Each contender is a unique creation that reflects the style of their respective restaurant. A separate panel of guest judges will also pick their favorite. Last year’s Battle of the Bur(ger) was the first time veggie burgers got their own category. So let’s introduce our new contender!
The Queen’s Head Veggie Burger
If you didn’t know already, The Queens Head menu is quite friendly to vegetarians. We have a variety meat-free options from appetizers to dessert. Our veggie burger is a must try — even for those omnivores out there. So what exactly is it?
First we start off with our house-made patty. It’s a hearty blend of mushrooms, oats, fennel, and chickpeas. Then we throw on a bit of Monterey Jack, our hummus of the day, and it’s all topped off with arugula and tomato. Who says that you needed meat for a tasty burger? We even throw in a side of our hand cut chips, or what you yanks call “fries.”
Sweet and Savory Sliders
There’s a saying that goes, “Good things come in pairs.” So for all of you with a craving for meat, we have our Sweet and Savory Sliders. On two beef patties you have have cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, chorizo jam, and fried onion straws. All of this between two brioche buns will knock your tastebuds with a variety of flavor and texture!
Also, not to brag, but our Sweet and Savory Sliders were voted as the second place winner in the competition last year. They were so popular that we even kept them as a featured item. So perhaps 2017 might just be our year for both categories, but we need your vote!
