Each year, Li’l Woody’s presents Seattle Burger Month. 4 Burgers, 4 Chefs, 4 Weeks. In 2019, the event ran from February 5th to March 4th. This year, diners who purchase all 4 burgers received a limited-edition Burger Month denim lunch bag with leather straps. I ate a burger each week and scored one of those cute bags! Here’s a recap of the burgers!
Week 1: Stuart Lane – The Italian Job
Artusi meatballs, provolone, arugula, tomato sauce, garlic aioli, Grand Central Bakery ciabatta bun
Week 2: Mutsuko Soma – The Kamonegi Burger
Seared duck/chicken patty, duck egg, arugula, Yuzu kewpie mayo, charcoal bun
Week 3: Mitch Mayers – The Deli Burger
1/4 pound Painted Hills grass fed beef, pastrami, sliced red onions, iceberg lettuce, spicy kosher pickle, Russian dressing, cream cheese Mornay, on an everything spiced bun
Week 4: Melissa Miranda – The SARAP Sandwich
Roasted pork adobo, chicharrones, radishes, fried garlic, patis salsa verde, Hawaiian bun
All of the burgers were unique but my favorite one was The SARAP Sandwich and it wasn’t because my Seattle Foodie Podcast co-host Nelson Lau and I ate it with Melissa Miranda. I loved this one so much I ate it TWICE! The roasted pork adobo had deep flavor and all the components went well together. The only thing is that I could have used more chicharrones because I love those! The sweetness of the Hawaiian bun pulled it all together. Is it too early for me to start thinking about 2020 Seattle Burger Month?
