While we are waiting for the snow to melt so we can get out to the park and get it opened, we have a chance to get to know our new Chef Shane Christoffer and sample some of the new burgers we will be serving at Backlot Cafe.
This is the table we gathered at today and sample burgers inspired by some of the great rides in the park. We have The Beast; a fresh chuck patty topped with pulled por, smoked meat and fresh cole slaw on a brioche bun. There was the Psyclone a black bean and smoked corn patty topped with boursain cheese, onion sprouts, grilled vegetables on a brioche bun. The Italian Job, a fresh chuck patty topped with pancetta, provolone cheese and La Bamba sauce on a Brioche bun. The Behemoth Burger has 2 patties, the first one topped with cheddar cheese and peameal bacon, the second topped with cheddar cheese and smoked bacon, loaded on the brioche bun.
For our newest ride we took inspiration for the end of the ride when you _________ (I can't give it away yet) but the burger is called the Guardian and it is topped with jalapeno havarti, jalapeno bacon, fresh jalapenos and deep fried crispy jalapenos---- feel the heat?
There was one burger that didn't make it through the tasting today, so if you have any suggestion please comment below what you might do with a Leviathan burger.
