From the department of “so much time and so little to eat”…
Just had to have a burger and beer at Bar Torre d’Ercole in Brescia on Saturday night.
Here’s the thing: they’re now making there burgers with dry-aged Chianina and roughly 10 percent ground uncured pork belly in the mix.
Definitely one of the best burgers I’ve ever had.
Italians are hamburger-crazy these days and I wasn’t surprised when I was wowed, once again, by the burger at Torre d’Ercole. Brescia province has always been an epicenter for beef, I’ve learned.
As fate would have it, my friends, the Brothers Pontiak, were playing Brescia that night and so we caught their super-packed show.
I don’t know how they do it but they tour with Steve Albini’s backline while in Europe. How cool is that?
They have a huge following in Italy and the show was awesome.
That’s all I have time for this morning. Stay tuned…
