Post-processed, lomo-type pictures courtesy of the Apple iPhone application Hipstamatic. I've been toying around with this app with the colleagues during lunch, but as you can probably tell from the blurry pictures more practice is definitely needed haha. Just as well for this post on Jones the Grocer at Dempsey actually, since the food here seems to have left a somewhat sketchy and forgettable impression.
The Jones' Open Wagyu Beef Burger was dull and monotonous. Dry bread and overdone crumbly patty... No sir, this ain't getting the green light from me. The balsamic vinegar did make a valiant attempt to save this dish, but it would have been asking too much of it surely. Quite simply, this burger tried too hard to be different, but it ended up looking (and tasting) like a confused sandwich!
Salads, no matter how dream-like or colourful, can never entice the red-blooded carnivore in me. Not one bit, not by a mile. But the lady who had this seemed to have no problems with the little garden before her, even with the pungent smell of (blue??) cheese wafting around the table. I'll face accusations of being a sexist but really it's something only the ladies can do with these salads. Give the real man a real burger with hot, crisp fries any day please.
$26.50++ for the Jones' Open Wagyu Beef Burger.
