Last night I went to @DMKBurgerBar to try the launch of the #5 burger, where it was offered free the first 55 ordered. Since DMK is just down the street, I decided what the heck, free burger from a place I know I enjoy.
The No.5 is a burger with Prosciutto, Fontina Cheese, Basil Pesto, Sun-Dried Tomato, and salt-vinegar chips.
Now, it's definitely not what I would normally put on a burger, but that's why I'm not a chef. I'm also a pesto lover (if you didn't know) so anything with pesto always gets a look. Which is also not surprising that the pesto was my favorite part of the burger, along with the roasted red pepper. The meat was tasty as always so right there I think you have a good idea. But it didn't stop there, you also have prosciutto and salt/vinegar chips to work with. I'm not a fan, nor an enemy of prosciutto, but when it comes to adding meat to an already meaty dish, I just assume keep it to one animal. I enjoyed the first couple of bites, but after that I had had enough. Also, I'm not a huge salt and vinegar chip person, so after a few bites I brushed those to the side.
All in all, DMK makes great burgers and serves any drink you want. Since the menu has 12 different burgers to choose from, there is something for everyone, I just wouldn't run back to take on the #5.
