Yesterday, I met a friend at Foster Burger in SE Portland.

Thereupon I ate "the Burner", featuring sriracha sauce, roasted jalapenos, fried onion straws, shredded lettuce, American & cheddar cheese.

After considering the several varieties of poutine available, we also shared the black and white fries with parmesan, truffle oil, and house made squid ink aioli. I added a side of cole slaw to get some nominal greens into my lunch.

Wow. A taste avalanche.

The burger was pretty good, though I had to resort to knife-and-fork, and couldn't finish it in any case. Nicely hot. The fries were excellent. My friend and I both found the squid ink aioli a little peculiar, she described it as "muddy tasting". Not bad, not offensive, but decidedly different.

Still, a delicious, curious lunch, all in all.

Oh, Jay . . . I feel intimidated just looking at that hamburger. No wonder you couldn't finish it.

Most of the time, in American restaurants, the plate set down in front of me has more than twice the amount of food I can actually eat.

But . . . that is an intimidating burger (smiles).

That's a meal that I call "leftovers for two or three more meals." Any more I try to bring my own containers when eating out and just divvy up the servings right away. But I'm six months away from Officially Being Eligible For Senior Menus.

Oh wow. I'm going to show that picture of the burger to my beloved, who is a carnivore AND chilli-head and he's going to insist we move back to Ameircaland!

That black aioli though... I do not think I could eat that. It looks like it's made of people.

That looks like serious, delicious, heart-stoppage.
