NYC Eats: J.G. Melon

Overhyped, their burger is definitely not the best burger that ever existed.  The patty was fresh and juicy, but that’s all about it for the small burger that I paid a premium price for.  The bun was disgusting.  It tasted like a bun bought from the supermarket, and it turned soggy even before you finish the burger.  Their cottage fries on the other hand were excellent.

My ratings:
Price range: $-$$

The bun was cold and turned soggy very quickly.  The cheese didn’t even melt properly.  It’s just not worth the price (nor the hype).  You can probably do better than this at home.

Cottage fried fries
Now these ones are amazing.  They are like little crispy potato pillows that’s crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside.  Also they aren’t greasy.
