I have a secret to tell you. I’m a bit of a Bwooklyn hater. Yea Bwooklyn. Brooklyn’s for tourists. Bwooklynites claim they have everything and their foodie scene has grown exponentially. I’ll admit they have some heavy hitters pero like yo, not everything is happening in Bwooklyn. Yo, we got:
- The Bronx!
- …Staten Island…. 😐
Sorry Staten Island. The only time I ever eaten in your borough is when I had a mouthful of mist the last time I rode the ferry, some umpteen years ago.
Sometimes my boyfriend and I drive to Bwooklyn to go grocery shopping at the Whole Foods on Bedford Ave. One Saturday before food shopping, we both craved juicy burgers and we found “Juniper” on a yelp whim. Holy moly and all the gods…their burger blew me away. Damn you Bwooklyn, you’ve done it again.
Juniper is like going to a bar that doesn’t serve liquor… But instead serves really great bar food…Ya know, like most bars should. I’m talking about chicken fingers, fries, and pulled pork sliders you can enjoy with or without booze, but the real winners here are their burgers… Juniper serves some bangin’, spankin’, juicy burgers. No frills. All classic. Nothing like Shake Shack or Shake Shack burger wannabes (you know who you are). The beef patties have a nice ratio of fat vs lean cause you get this nice greasy goatee after a big bite… You’ve been forewarned. Nothing about this place screams healthy or organic. It’s quite the opposite. Afterwards your stomach will be laced in grease but my friends, it is soooooo worth it.
