Burgoo (Kits): Comfort Food
This isn’t my first time dining at Burgoo. I mean, a place dedicated to comfort food? Why am I not here more often?
During Christmastime, we found ourselves shopping along West 4th Avenue and needing nourishment and respite from the cold weather. Burgoo was the perfect place for us to stop by. We dined in their enclosed patio which was pleasantly bright and airy.
I ordered the Beef Bourguignon ($18) with French Onion Soup ($11.50) and I was very pleased with both dishes. The bourguignon was meaty with red wine braised beef and I just love those little pearl onions.
It just doesn’t get much cheesier than their French Onion Soup. Each spoonful will bring you an ample cheese pull. My only complaint about this soup is that there didn’t seem to be as much onions in the soup as I hoped for.
I found that the Chicken Pot Pie ($17.50) puff pastry was difficult to break through without using a knife. Similarly, the chunks of chicken inside the pie were a bit too large and required a knife to cut down. I would have enjoyed this more if the chicken pieces were cut smaller and if the puff pastry was a more delicate and flaky variety.
Overall, however, the food was comforting on a cold winter day and I’d definitely come back.
