Well, we had another roadside food stop, this time at the Bob Evans Restaurant chain. The service was fine, and the food was OK too; for a necessary roadside stop it was just what we needed.
I had a burger “platter”. I’m not really sure they understand the meaning of the word; a platter to me is somewhat larger and perhaps has more offerings. Anyway, it was just what I wanted, and not too much of it.
The burger had cheese, bacon and chipotle sauce. It was very fine indeed.
Bacon is a different kettle of fish in North America – it’s what I would call streaky bacon, whereas bacon in the UK is normally made from back bacon. It means the bacon is delightfully crispy and fatty – a different kind of good from my regular bacon with the fat cut off!
I love chipotle sauce! However, I fear I may never be able to make it at home without access to canned chipotle chillis. I’ll have to work on that one…
Hubby’s lunch (pictured below with my burger) was a biscuit basket with potato, bacon and egg, and smothered in gravy. He liked it! He said the biscuit was properly savoury (some have been a bit sweet, apparently) and the gravy was good. It looked thoroughly unappetising to me, but he was in his element.
