The wonderful people at ROK:BRGR invited The305 for an intimate media tasting at their South Miami (near Sunset Place) location. Select media and tastemakers joined the festivities and were greeted to an eclectic preview of their upcoming menu change that happens next week at both ROK:BRGR locations.
It all started with the Thai Steak Salad. Lettuce that was loaded with filet mignon, mixed greens, mango, cherry tomato, toasted sesame, crispy wontons and ginger dressing.
Then the burgers came out. They were “slider” versions of the actual full sized burgers. The Somi Burger (Brie+Fig Jam), The Spicy Crunch (fritos, chipotle gouda and chipotle ketchup), The Lamb Burger (very lean with cucumber mint yogurt, arugula and more) and our favorite….The Fat Elvis or the “PB&J” Burger as we called it (creamy peanut butter, local strawberry jam and thick cut pepper smoked bacon). Again the Fat Elvis is out of this world and you most definitely need to take a trip to ROK:BRGR if only to taste that. Its a great concept with enough of a “classic turned new idea” that it just works. And the flavors gel so well together.
And lastly, the dessert. We were treated to a lemon popsicle by locally based Pop Lab to cleanse our palettes. Then came the Giant Chocolate Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookie that was served warm and with cold white milk. And then topping everything off was a Very Berry Bread Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream that seemed to be the crowd favorite. And multiple rounds of Stella Artois as well throughout the night for everyone who attended.
All in all, it was a great tasting with a good introduction to ROK:BRGR’s new menu items and we definitely can’t wait to return.
