Eating Out Paleo – BurGR, Las Vegas, NV
Every single famous chef is in Vegas!
Actually, Gordon Ramsay is so famous he has 3 restaurants in Vegas now – BurGR at Planet Hollywood (a sit-down burger joint with a really “hot” gas flame decor), Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris casino (an upscale steak house with Gordon as the head chef – the steak I had there was crazy good!), and a Pub & Grill at Caesar’s Palace (his only restaurant in the US (outside of the ones in LA) that I haven’t been to yet – somehow I was just wasn’t that thrilled to get an “authentic English pub experience” having grown up in England!).
Is BurGR Paleo?
As with most burger restaurants, you can get the burger without the bun easily. It does mean you don’t get quite as much food, but you can always get 2 burgers if you need to (I sort of wanted 3 that night!).
My Farm Burger with Duck Bacon at BurGR
I ordered the farm burger (duck breast bacon, English sharp cheddar (not very Paleo) and fried egg). I had a lettuce wrap instead of the bun. It was superb – the duck breast bacon really added a lot of flavor. As with any good bacon, you can taste the flavors in the meat and not just the salt they added in!
Jeremy ordered the Britannia burger (English sharp cheddar, mango chutney, and arugula) in a lettuce wrap. It was 1 am at this point, so I let the photo-taking urge subside. But, he felt that there could have been a bit more mango chutney.
Overall, a nice burger joint that was open late (2am on Fridays and Saturdays and midnight on other days). Definitely some classy Ramsay takes on traditional burgers.
