I had a sudden crazy craving for Paseo. If you’ve never heard of Paseo (not sure that’s possible if you live in Seattle), it’s a Cuban-style sandwich shop in Seattle that has been featured on Food Network’s best sandwiches series. Paseo often has long lines out its door and they are sometimes so busy that they run out of bread and have to turn people away.
Today, I was the first one in line. Suddenly, I remembered that they do not accept cards and I did not have any cash on me. While I sadly walked back to my car to figure out where the closest ATM was located, I saw Uneeda Burger, which reminded me of their recent Thrillist article. When a door closes, another opens…
#9, a.k.a. the Medi-terra Lamb Burger, topped with peppers, onions, manchego, tempura lemons (yep!), arugula, and cilantro was beyond satisfying. As I read through the variety of ingredients on this burger, I thought that no possible harmony could be achieved amongst so many strong ingredients. Happily incorrect, I found that everything came together in culinary bliss. The standout ingredient were the tempura lemons, which popped through the peppery arugula and meatiness of the lamb patty.
Did I need a burger? Yes, yes I did. Oh, and they take cards.
