The Branding Iron: The Westerner

180s

Its time to visit one of the best Burger joints in Peekskill: The Branding Iron.

This is one hearty burger. It is filling, huge, and quite good. It is so big that it is almost impossible to get your mouth around it for the first few bites.

The patty itself is pretty big and has good flavor, the cheddar cheese is melted well, and the BBQ sauce (instead of ketchup) is nice and sweet.

The onion ring on the burger has a nice crunch, and the sauteed onions were plentiful, as was the crispy bacon.

The bun is brioche and and coated in butter before it is grilled, and in keeping with the theme of the name, is branded on top. Interestingly, the brand itself smells similar to a somewhat charred marshmallow you’d have as a kid.

So if you are ever in the Northwest section of Westchester and want a good burger, visit the Branding Iron in Peekskill, you won’t be disappointed.

Coriander: Lamb Tikka Masala

If you are in the mood for something delicious and exotic, Coriander Modern Indian may just be the place for you. I admittedly have not had much Indian food in my life, but my visit to Coriander will certainly change that.

When I told my friend that I would be having Indian food, he implored me to have Lamb Tikka Masala, and while technically only Chicken Tikka Masala is on Coriander’s menu, they will gladly make it with lamb if you ask for it.

My friend was absolutely right, Lamb Tikka Masala is a must have, especially at Coriander.

The sauce is a combination sweet, spicy, and plentiful; it engulfs the entire dish in a proverbial pool of flavor. The lamb is large, thick, and very tender, and mixed in with the sauce, it tastes out of this world. Furthermore, it is garnished quite nicely.

Traditionally it is eaten with rice, and while one can put the rice on a plate and spoon the Tikka Masala over it, I’ve found that I enjoy putting the rice in the bowl and having everything meld together. Also, try the naan bread, it is excellent.

For a delicious Indian meal in a nice modern atmosphere, get yourself over to Coriander in White Plains or Larchmont; its a great place to try something new, or have a great version of an old favorite.

Roosters Market: Belly Buster

The Belly Buster is the first sandwich I ever had at Roosters, and its the reason I have gone back multiple times; now it is time to introduce it to all of you.

Utilizing a soft wedge to perfection, the Belly Buster is chock full of thick and tasty roast beef and turkey, and a semi sharp Swiss cheese to accompany them.

Thin red onion that is included adds a biting flavor, but is not overpowering, and the shredded lettuce is both wet and crunchy. As an added bonus, there is a good deal of extra crispy bacon that provides just the salt and extra crisp that this sandwich needs.

Every bite of this sandwich gives you a delicious mouthful of meat, cheese, and tasty garnish. If you go to Roosters, the Belly Buster is a great choice to fill your belly.
