Chapa’s Burger [On The Road/BurgeReview: Caracas]

My compadre Chapa is almost as obsess as me with burgers, we are always discussing which place is good, what worked what didn't, he loves Five Guys, I think they’re pretty decent, and I still have the benefit of the doubt regarding In n Out he basically hate them. The thing is he always tells me at the end that his burgers are the best ones. I usually see him when visiting my hometown, see the family, godson, and friends, as he prepares a pretty good solid 5 star BBQ, some might say not as good as the one that Cachaco does but a pretty good one.

After a fiasco in Caracas, which I will tell you more in a later post, he decided finally to invite me to try his creation. Coal BBQ to cook the patties, they were sourced from a local butcher to be sure to have good meat quality. The toys for the burger, caramelized onions with a balsamic reduction, a special curry mustard/mayo, rocket, bacon, and melted brie, sounds good isn't? 

Patties ready
Chapa's creation
Let me tell you it was awesome and is not because he’s my compadre I would have enjoyed criticising him if the burger wasn't right, but everything was spot on, the flavour of the meat, the melted brie, the onions, the sauce, the bacon, the rocket, everything in balance, awesome. The only thing I would have change is to have the meat cook less to get a medium rare but that’s just me. 

Burger time
Ready to toll
The best burger in Caracas, sadly it’s off the menu. 

Close up
Chapa is also a Seinfeld fan and we always make jokes with Art Vandeley that reminds me the episode “The Stakeout” 

Jerry: Wait a second. That’s her. On the right 
George: I forgot who I am! Who am I? 
Jerry: You’re you. We’re having lunch with Art Corvelay 
George: Vandelay! 
Jerry: Corvelay! 
George: Let me be the architect! I can do it! 
Jerry: Hey, hey, Pamela’s birthday party, didn’t I see you there? Jerry 
Vanessa: Sure! Hi! 
Jerry: This is George. I’m sorry 
Vanessa: Vanessa 
George: Nice to meet you 
Jerry: Ah, Sagman, Bennet, Robbins, Oppenheim and Taft 
Vanessa: That’s right! Yea, what’re you doing here? 
Jerry: Oh, we’re meeting a friend of ours for lunch. He works here in the building 
George: Yeah, Art Vandelay 
Vanessa: Really? Which company? 
Jerry: I don’t know. He’s an importer 
Vanessa: Importer? 
George: And exporter 
Jerry: He’s an importer, exporter
