APPLEBEES: Caprese Mozzarella Burger
Remember when you were in high school and a person in your group of friends has a birthday? You go to Applebees. Maybe one or two people have their drivers licences. Everyone piles into their [parent’s] car(s) and goes to eat at The Bee. Yeah, you feel cool. You feel like an “adult”. You guys are obnoxious to the waiter/waitress because there is such a huge group of loud, snotty, cocky, teens who want to all split the bill in weird ways. No one has a credit or debit card. Everyone orders a 3x of each appetizers.
…Let’s not relive that how bout…?
Not much has changed about Applebees. Even though the food is typical chain bar and grill, Applebee’s has always had that nostalgic feel. Personally, I never thought Applebees was anything to get excited about in terms of the menu. However, there was something weirdly good about the Infamous Oriental Chicken salad that has been there for at least 20 years. Does anyone agree? Am I weird? I don’t know.
Let’s try a newish semi bougie sounding burger though. Since high school, I would like to believe I am more adventurous and open to different combos.
The Caprese Burger: “Sautéed garlic and onions seared into an all-beef patty and topped with balsamic aioli, grilled tomatoes, grilled red onions, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil. Served with classic fries.” (applebee.com)
Ok, I like caprese salads. I like hamburgers. I like onions a lot. Let’s try!
The burger was really packed! I couldn’t get the whole thing in my mouth. It looked great though.
First bite: Hmmmm….
Second bite: A LOT OF ONION! I mean they put 2 whole full slices of red onion. Now, I love onions, but this is ALL I tasted. It even over powered the burger which was nicely cooked with pink as asked, but not seasoned. Why no season the burger patty Applebees? The mozzerella was there but was squishy and flavorless. I couldn’t taste any balsamic vinaigrette either. The buns were dense as well. Hmmm. The worst part was the unpeeled onion on both slices of onion. Since the onion was pretty much the showboat in the burger, it was not a good look. Cmon atleast get the skin outta there!
Would I recommend? No
Would I try again? No
