I recently visited the new burger joint in Carrollwood called Burger 21. I had the black bean burger. I would have ordered a regular beef or turkey burger but I normally eat vegetarian. They had a wide variety of burgers on their menu. The turkey burger looked very good. I shared an order of sweet potato fries and had a root beer float. They also had a serious saucing station. I tried their toasted marshmallow sauce and their apple cider sauce with my sweet potato fries. I did not like them. I loved the sweet potato fries. Their more traditional dipping sauces like the honey mustard and the thai ketchup were pretty good.
My black bean burger was great. I ordered it with just lettuce, tomato and gouda cheese instead of how it is listed on the menu with salsa and other 'stuff'. The gouda cheese is not on the menu. I had to ask for it. It's new to Burger 21. So if you like gouda, they have it in the back! The texture of the burger was just right. It was just moist enough. It wasn't too dry and it wasn't too squishy. The bun was really delicious. I think it was wholewheat: Super-yum-delish!
If you are a fan of root beer floats, you should go there but the delicious burger was the best thing. Thumbs up burger 21. I'll be back!
Last weekend I visited my favorite Chinese restaurant. I see why they call it the Yummy House: it is extremely yummy. I love their sweet and sour fish and their orange chicken is very good as well. You can ask for the sauce on the side when ordering the sweet and sour fish if you are not a fan of too much toppings and over-saucing. Its a whitefish that has been breaded and fried. It is served piping hot. I had to let it sit for a second. that's another reason to get the sauce on the side. So it doesn't sit in the sauce too long while it's cooling getting soggy. This is my favorite thing to get at The Yummy House.
The orange chicken is sweet and savory. It is very tasty. Dining at The Yummy House is one of those nights when I will eat meat. It's always worth it.
Also the egg drop soup is something special . It's not your average egg drop soup. It is better than most out there because of the tiny bits of vegetables inside, especially the baby corn bits. I think they show their talents making this soup. It's great if you have a gigantic family at the Yummy House, because the portions are huge! We never finish anything...leftovers for lunch and dinner the next day. BTW: Egg drop soup for breakfast before school is awesome.
