I am still flipping out over FLIP, only the best boutique burger bar in Atlanta. If you haven’t been, please make plans to do so now. Each and every time I go it is just beyond amazing.
Honey and I meet up for a lunch date without the littles a couple of times a month. And FLIP is a standard part of the rotation. We always sit at the bar and predictably order “the usual.”
One Local, halved to share. What? That doesn’t sound too fabulous? Au contraire mon frere. Not only is the burger itself perfection, but it’s loaded with heirloom tomatoes, grilled vidalia onion and local cheese.
One Pimento Cheeseburger, halved to share. This is one of FLIP’s most popular options and you’ll know why after one bite. Pancetta, pimento cheese, bread and butter pickles. Mmmmm….
One order of hand cut fries with smoked mayo/ketchup. To share.
And finally, the coup de grace of the meal. Wait for it. Wait for it. One Nutella and Burnt Marshmallow Milkshake. Wipe the drool from your chin. Okay. Yes, there is such a thing as a nutella and burnt marshmallow milkshake and it IS every bit as divine as it sounds. I think about this thing when I’m not at FLIP. The milkshake part is totally nutella-fied and masterfully yummy. Then it’s loaded with mini-marshmallows burnt with the kitchen torch. Just before serving, it’s topped with liquid nitrogen to give it a smashing, smoking presentation. Genius, I say.
It’s now approximately nine hours after devouring said meal and I’m still sitting here with my pants unbuttoned. Totally gorged, but totally worth it. As they proclaim, FLIP truly is fine dining between two buns.
