If you ask me what is the best way to get through a mid-week (other than shopping), I would say how about treating yourself to a yummy, juicy burger and a delicious, crisp beer!
I just tried the recently opened Social Kitchen & Brewery on 9th & Irving, and I have to say… it was pretty darn good. While I was there, I ordered the Cheeseburger of house-ground Angus beef with Colby cheese, on a fluffy sesame roll topped with their specialty house mayo. No ketchup and mustard needed!
I (on the right) ordered the Social Kolsch, a light-bodied beer that was crisp and simple, with flavors of bread, grass, and a bit of lemon. yummy, yummy!
G (on the left) ordered the L’enfant Terrible, a Belgian-style dark ale that is more bolder in taste with a touch of the chocolatey and fruity flavor.
Looking from the outside, I didn’t realize how big this space was. This restaurant has a two-level seating area, a cocktail bar, and a large window in the back where you can look through their brewery.
We also munched on this beer-battered sweet potato fries dipped in a sweet & spicy malt vinegar. For $5 a pot, this deep fried yummy was endless!
Inside the brewery…
This space has been vacant for a while, so I’m glad it is now a restaurant that serves up simple delicious food and fresh beer in the neighborhood. G and I left feeling pretty happy and satisfied. Overall, the food was good, seating was comfortable, service was on par and the price was just right (very important!) , so I’m sure I’ll be back to check out their other beers and food on the menu.
