The Beach Haven Fishery, Long Beach Island, NJ, 21st & LBI Blvd. 609-492-4388

Where: 
The Beach Haven Fishery, Long Beach Island, NJ

What: 
The Alaskan King Crab Eggs Benedict Black Angus Burger (Whew!)

Build: 
1/2-pound Black Angus beef, house made Hollandaise sauce, wild Alaskan king crab, butter, black pepper, on a toasted ciabatta roll.

Comments: 
For all you die-hard burger folks who can't stand eccentric toppings on your burgers, believe me when I say, you have my empathy. I'm a bare-bones, butter and burger, onion and pickle kinda guy, but in this decade of "burger wars", the avant garde can no longer be ignored (or avoided). So please do continue to read my review of this land-meets-sea-meets-air concoction... Should you still be upset, just read the review and don't look at the photos... I'll understand.

The photo progression shows the steps of construction of this bad boy with the exception of the whisking of the homemade Hollandaise sauce and the burger being char-broiled on the grill.

A double layer of American cheese on top of the Fishery's 1/2 pound nugget of Angus goodness was then topped with premium Alaskan king crab leg meat. A perfectly poached egg was then laid to rest on top and the whole shootin' match was covered with the sauce.
The freshly baked ciabatta roll had a perfectly crispy shell with a soft interior that encased the sandwich and effectively helped to retain juices and sauces.

From the first bite to the last, I was surprised by how well the flavors and textures blended. The crab, egg, burger, cheese and sauce came together under that crispy roll to form a masterpiece. The Hollandaise sauce was just acidic enough to counter the richness of the egg and blend with the cheese. This was a great burger and I look forward to the next and the next after that. Due to the sloppy nature of this beast affecting its "eatability" this gets a 9.7 on the BC rating scale. (the first burger from the BHF that is not a 10/10)

(The lighting in the kitchen was slightly off as the burger was not cooked nearly as much as depicted in the photos)...
