Who knew our most ridiculous meal would be in Portland? After a morning of pancakes, doughnuts, and hiking, we were famished and ready for food. A quick search of the area showed that Brunch Box, contrary to their name, was famous for their burgers, so we decided to pay them a visit.
The location itself is rather small and meant more for take-out, but there are a handful of seats available for those who want to dine in. We stared at the menu for a very long time, trying to decide what combination of burger we wanted to try. I love a classic cheeseburger, so I decided to go all-out and get the YouCanHasCheeseburger while my friend opted for the meat-heavy OMG Burger. I can’t even describe them, so see the menu descriptions below.
YouCanHasCheeseburger: Patty with american cheese, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, ketchup, mustard & mayo nestled between two texas toast grilled cheese sandwiches.
OMG Burger: Patty with american, bacon, ham, spam, & an egg, with lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, ketchup, mustard & mayo.
The patty was juicy and the ingredients tasted fresh. I loved the Texas toast grilled cheese, which was easy to squish down so a proper bite could be taken. I’ll kid you not, when my friend showed me her burger, and every time we showed someone a photo of it, they went, “OMG”. Well-named.
We both honestly thought we would be stuffed beyond belief and feeling pretty greasy after this meal, but surprisingly we were neither – I don’t know what it was, but we left feeling energized and honestly… I would do it again.
