Sriracha Burger

I was excited to made my return to Slater’s 50/50 while visiting here in Pasadena. I had my first burger in 2013 and I try stop here every time I am in town. You can read all about them on my post. Slater’s is known for their 50/50 burger patties – made of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef. I had a quick stop here for lunch and tried their popular Sriracha Burger and Frickles (fried pickles). It’s a specialty item so I had to try it. The patty rests on Sriracha coleslaw and is topped with Sriracha sautéed mushrooms, pepper jack cheese, thick-cut bacon strips glazed with Sriracha mayo on a brioche bun. That’s a lot of Sriracha and it was delicious! I also got a Kona Big Wave beer. See you next time Slater’s!

The Strand

The Strand Urban Italian is a restaurant nestled in Phoenix’s CityScape plaza. The Strand offers a fast-casual experience where diners order at the counter, find a seat and are served their meal within 10 minutes. Well..not really. We had a large crowd of us from Phoenix One that took over the restaurant, so our order took a bit longer than that. But they do donate $2 from each pizza ordered to Phoenix One. I order the sausage and mushroom pizza and had a great time with good friends. We walked here from our church event and enjoyed the beautiful lights of downtown Phoenix.
