New Orleans

District Donuts, Sliders, Brew

“These diminutive dynamos are small on size but big on seared flavor. The patties are thin, lightly seasoned, and have nice caramelization on the outside. These have a perfect melt on the cheese, that almost drips over  the crispy sliders. There is a hint of egg in the house rolls, which are gold, very fluffy and cap the slider with an excellent textural combination. A ray of sour flavor, courtesy of B&B artisanal pickles, shoots through the roll and meat. The slider sauce, too, hints at tang and hits on the sides of the tongue. Neither detract from, but only augment, the petite patties perfectly.”

  Waffle Fries

  • Very pale color
  • Fried crispy
  • Decent flavor, only a hint of salt

If you are a fan of waffle fries these will do the trick. The order came up so fast. But the fries were beyond blond, almost white. Yet they were still crispy. Only a touch of salt adorned them. A bite in to the waffle reveals some of that deconstructed potato flavor that unnatural fries are known for. They are an unpretentious option as a sidekick to the sliders.

 
  Maine Root Cola

  • Served in plastic, branded cup
  • Lots of ice
  • Paler cola color
  • Nice balance of bitter and sweet
  • Sharper carbonation
  • Natural sweetening

You won’t find many more impressive beverages to adorn the Cola and Burger combo. Maine Root had a complex flavor, with interplay between bitter and sweet not found in mass market Colas of any brand. Truly a joy to wash down sliders with!
