¡Ay, caramba! Tres Leches Shake and Cinco de Mayo Burger, Batman! Station Eats (Filling Station)-New Canaan, CT

9 May

Cinco de Mayo (Chorizo) Burger

Update:  June’s burger of the month will be Chili Cheeseburger and the shake of the month will be Strawberry Waffle Maple Milkshake!!!

In honor of America’s obsession with Cinco de Mayo and everything Mexican, Filling Station has put together another OmNom-worthy pairing for May.  First, there is the Tres Leches Milkshake.   It looked like our cups first got a few heavy squirt of some sweetened condensed milk before the shake got mixed in.  This added that sweet, deep flavor you get from tres leches desserts.  You’re talking three different kinds of milk with just the slightest hint of coconut.  We won’t talk about the calories these ingredients added. ;) Kristien was all over this one and loved it.  We still think it’s funny how I can down a large when Kristien struggles to get down half of her small. :)
The Cinco De Mayo Burger is also great and is a sizeable departure from what Filling Station usually does.  That being said, it was a worthy risk because it turned out bueno.  They start off with a chorizo burger patty, press it up real nice, then go to town with the ingredients.  They put on two nice slabs of queso fresco-the real deal here!  Then, put on some tomatoes and lettuce on top.  Finally, slather that hamburgesa with a really smooth and light lime cilantro creama.  Kristien will vouch for me, I’m not a cheese lover or even a crème fraiche or sour cream lover, but I dug in.  For me, it was a very good burger.  You could get a little kick of spice from some cumin that balanced out nicely with the creaminess of the cheese and the tangy crema.  Krisiten raved about hers, too.

Let’s just pretend that’s all we ate.  It’ll be our little secret, okay? ;)

      Maybe, just maybe, also chili fries. And maybe cheese fries. And maybe another hamburger. And just maybe another hot dog.
