Let your heart skip a beat at The Blacktap

This place needs no introduction, its widely famous and most people have it on their buck-eat lists already. I, on the other hand had been longing to visit but I guess I waited for an occasion and so I decided to have my birthday dinner here. Needless to say that I was impressed by the service, interiors, food and the gigantic birthday shake. Let me start off by telling you that if you are visiting with babies or children then you should dine in their outside seating area because its actually a pub and when I was there, 20 people were celebrating birthday and there was tobacco smoke everywhere so I didn’t feel comfortable sitting inside with my toddler.

The restaurant has a dark rustic ambiance as you will see in pictures below:

Burger-iffic!

I admit that I was primarily there for the oh-so-famous shakes but hey! It was my birthday so I ordered in their burgers as well. I was warned before hand that their portion sizes are just too  large so I won’t be able to finish both items. Little does everyone know that my appetite is a monster itself.
Their burgers were absolutely smashing! I took the first bite out of my mexican chicken burger and it was like the entire world paused and I was no longer a part of this world. The burger was generously stacked with cheese, onion and tomatoes. Ok! enough of the description, just see the picture below:

The chicken patty itself was so flavorsome and juicy that it added to the taste of the entire burger. I chose sweet potato fries for the sides (not because they are healthy). Infact, while we are discussing this right now. Let me clear this confusion, sweet potato fries are actually higher in calories as compared to normal potato fries. People consider it to be healthy because it keeps you fuller for longer.

Blacktap special

This was their special burger that needs a long time to be described because its just worth it. Oh my God! it was the mother of all burgers, the wagyu beef patty was out of this world. Garnished with arugula leaves shuffled in vinaigrette played an integral part in the glory of this beauty.

Birthday Shake

They have a wide variety of freak shakes and i think they are nailing all of those but I wanted to order the Cake shake to respect the occasion. The shake was topped with an enormous slice of birthday cake with million confetti and whipped cream with cherry on top. It was so beautiful and the shake had icecream in it blended with the vanilla frosting to just sweep my feet off the floor.
