The Beach Haven Fishery: Crabby Patty

Hill Country on Urbanspoon
Where: Beach Haven Fishery, Long Beach Island, NJ
What: The "Crabby Patty" Burger
Build: 1/2 lb. black Angus beef encapsulated in a crab cake topped with pickle relish and mayo.
Comment: The build description of this burger may not sit well with some of you die-hard beef eaters, but as a fellow beef fanatic, I feel we have an obligation to sample all-things-burger, and to be honest, Sous Chef "Vinny Bone's" creation actually worked - and in a huge way. Vinny Bones told me he has been thinking about making this burger for over a year and his well calculated and executed cooking made that clear - nothing greasy here. The burger was par-cooked in the deep fryer before being covered with the BHF's succulent crab cake mixture; it was then dredged in flour, egg, and cornmeal before it was submerged for a second round in the fryer. The result was deep fried perfection - it was topped with pickle relish and mayo and laid to rest on a fresh baked ciabatta roll. These delicious rolls can sometimes overpower a burger, but just check the photos of this behemoth. At first glace I thought the roll might not be needed, but one bite proved me wrong. The burger was cooked a perfect medium-rare and the crab meat mixture was moist and full of flavor which made the bread a necessity. I'm not one to mix land and sea, but this burger was a full-out awesome sandwich. Well done VB.  10/10
