Triple Cut burgers Jack in the Box.
« on: July 11, 2018, 04:59:17 AM »
It's hot, I don't want to cook, and the thought of eating another hot pocket makes me want to barf. Also, golly shopping.

So, FAST FOOD! AGAIN!

https://www.chewboom.com/2018/06/04/jack-in-the-box-introduces-new-triple-cut-premium-burgers/

No clue who the chewboom folks are, just wanted a link for pretty pictars!

First thought: golly Arugula. Nasty Lettuce. Reminds me of Kale. Kale is bad.

Next, The brioche bun on the Bacon whatever was fantastic. I just want to buy those and make my own burgers at home. Instead, store brioche is some nasty poo I wouldn't feed to an enemy.

I'm probably going to die from the sodium intake alone, but honestly, the Bacon whatever burger isn't worth it in any respect. Besides the bun, which once again, is fantastic. If you want a burger with bacon on it, get the jr. bacon cheeseburger, it's like $1.39, and probably has a zillion less calories.

Next! The lemon Aioli. I'm pretty sure at this point, Aioli is just mayo for people who think they are above mayo. I hear it's a madam and a half to make, but I never made my own mayonaise either.

The lemon aioli is pleasant. I really liked it.

Back when Food network was for nerds, instead of Food porn for loud fat people, I remember alton brown suggesting you grind some steak in with your hamburger meat, as it makes for a more flavorful, juicier burger.

First off, grind my own meat? hah. Next, he did warn me against using a food processor. Meat mousse is a sad, disgusting thing.

Anyway, the point of this section is to say that Jack in the Box keeps touting these fancy burgers with fancy meat, and I can't tell. They taste like hamburger, which I suppose means you get what you pay for, but they certainly aren't worth any extra expense.

But the arugula strangles the lemon aioli burger. bless'ed ditch weed. And not the kind imported from mexico.
I've never had Manchego before, and I am sorry to say I could not taste it over that god damned arugula. I might order this again, hoping to actually taste the cheese. It had the consistency of melted swiss, but once again, I didn't taste it.

So, bottom line, save your money, if you need to eat fast food get the cheapest burger, skip the fries and the drink, even though the drive thru workers get bitchy. Seriously, it's not like I'm taking money from them, I just don't see the point of drowning in soda or overpaying for fries.

Jack value fries are probably one of the better fast food fries though. Mcdonalds ones smell like vomit, and burger king ones underwent some sort of metamorphosis they shouldn't have.

Oh, there is a five guys across the street from me, but I still haven't gone. Screw their prices. Burgers and fries should be cheap, quick, and uncomplicated.

I've tried Five Guys, it wasn't worth it in the least, and the price was equivalent to dining at a middle of the road roadhouse. The burger was good but not better than I make myself on the BBQ with Keg burgers or whatever Costco has to offer in large format.

I've tried a few of these "gourmet" burger outlets popping up but they are all overly expensive for a mediocre product.

And their burgers always look like poo!

FLAT PATTIES ROCK, weird pucks can kick rocks.

I've had decent steakhouse burgers, in a steakhouse. Always worry I'll lose fillings in places like that though. I much prefer being handed a sack of food and eating at home.

I had five guys once, in Georgia. It was greasy. I've always heard them compared to In-n-out, but I always think "clean food" when I think about In-n-out. I still buy a box of death grease, Animal-style. I wouldn't say it's healthy eating, but it's prepped in what looks like a surgical theater compared to five guy's "ambiance" of poo on the floor.

I worship at the altar of arugula (garden rocket).  It grows in my yard and reseeds itself.  I could just sit and eat a plate of it raw.  But I'm not really a burger eater and cannot conceive of it as a great addition to a hamburger.  Somehow even lettuce seems wrong.  Burgers are Elvis type food.  They need some ketchup or other condiment and maybe a slice of tomato.

one, large leaf of lettuce is fine. Shredded is acceptable. Anything else is salad.

But onion makes burgers pop. I also like pickles on mine, but a lot of people seem to go crazy about that.
