The New Goods at The Counter®

If you have yet to try The Counter®, you don't know what you're missing.  And with the new menu items that they have recently added to their menu, there is no better time than now to give them a try (or revisit them if it's been a while since your last visit).

For the past ten years, The Counter® has been known to be the place to go to custom-build your own burger.  Every aspect of your burger is determined by you.  You select the bun, meat, sauce, and toppings.  If you are the type that does not like to make decisions, you can select from one of their "Expert Build" burgers, where the ingredients are pre-set for you, so all you have to do is sink your teeth into your burger and enjoy the combination of flavors and ingredients that have been pre-selected by their experts.
The Counter recently revamped their menu, adding new Expert Build burgers to the menu:  
Red Eye:  hormone and antibiotic free beef topped with melted tillamook cheddar, applewood smoked bacon, ripened red tomato, a sunny side up egg on an English muffin with a side of sweet sriracha
Un-Brie-lievable:  100% natural ground turkey on a bed of organic mixed greens topped with soft-ripened brie, ripened red tomato, dried cranberries on a multigrain bun with a side of apricot sauce
Bison with Bite:  organic bison topped with tillamook cheddar, spicy pickles, sliced red onion on a brioche style bun with a side of house mustard and spicy worcestershire
Southeast Asian Ahi:   ahi tuna topped with pickled carrot and daikon slaw, ripened red tomato on a brioche style bun with a side of nori-soy sauce and sweet sriracha
Anaheim Jack:  100% natural chicken breast topped with jalapeno jack, Anaheim peppers, red onions on a ciabatta bun with a side of roasted garlic aioli

I recently visited The Counter with a friend to try a couple of their new Expert Builds - here's what we ordered:

The Red-Eye: perfect for those who enjoy breakfast, thanks to the egg and muffin.  The sweet sriracha sauce is a perfect blend of sweet and spicy.  It'll gives the burger a nice kick.

The Un-Brie-lievable: you almost don't notice that you're eating turkey and not ground beef.  Pairing this burger with a side of apricot sauce was a brilliant idea.

No meal at The Counter® is complete without Shoestring Fries and Crispy Onion Strings
