I’ve been to Bistro Truck plenty of times, but never tried their lamb burger. A couple of months ago, in order to stand out a bit from other food trucks serving burgers, Yassir switched from a beef burger to a lamb burger.
Lamb is generally more expensive than beef, but Today’s Lunch of a lamb burger from Bistro Truck was only $7.
The burger was thick, and it was on a large eggy bun covered with cheddar cheese. It took a lot to get my mouth around the entire thing, but I managed.
The burger was cooked to medium, with a bit of pink in the middle. Ground lamb is a red meat, but has a dfferent taste than beef, a little meatier-tasting. The lamb burger was very tender and juicy.
The cheddar cheese had an edge that went perfectly with ground lamb, which has a stronger taste than beef. It also melted really well, which is not always the case with cheddar cheese.
As I said, the bun was eggy, but it was also thick and very soft. There was lettuce, tomato and a small amount of harissa mayo on the burger too.
Today’s Lunch of a lamb burger from Bistro Truck was very good. It’s not easy standing out from the crowd with a burger these days, but Bistro Truck pulled it off well with their lamb burger. No wonder they were Vendy Award Finalists in 2010.
