Straight forward burgers, crab rolls and Bassets milk shakers are done well at Frog Burger but there is one item on the menu by which Steve Poses’ burger stand will be measured.
he Love Burger, a sandwich that should be on the American Heart Associationâ€™s version of the FBIâ€™s Most Wanted list, or at least in an entry on the blog This Is Why Youâ€™re Fat. Its 5-ounce patty would seem moderate if it werenâ€™t dwarfed by the two grilled-cheese sandwiches that serve as buns.
The first bite is a bit like how I imagine the stages of death: You fight off your fear, give in, then are likely to find yourself won over by its warm, comforting embrace. And while the four distinct layers of texture may be odd at firstâ€”a palindrome of butter-crisp toast, molten American cheese, inner sandwich slightly soggy from the meatâ€™s juices and bacon-emboldened Russian dressing, and the animal chew of beefâ€”it ultimately won me over with sheer force of personality and fatty exuberance.
