I finally checked out Seattle Center's updated food court, The Armory, today for lunch. I ate a burger at the Skillet Counter. It was gourmet and made with really fresh ingredients and included hand-cut fries, but it was pretty spendy. I mean, $12 bucks for a burger and fries in a food court setting, ouch. Plus the hubby's gotta eat too so our total was $24. For that price I want someone to wait on me, sorry.
Skillet Counter is one of their three locations you can these burgers. What makes them unique is the Bacon Jam. I found it pretty salty and intense but people love the stuff. They line up at Skillets' food truck and their diner on Capital Hill is really popular. Bacon Jam is a spread they use on the brioche bun, then a four ounce patty, bleu cheese and arugula makes up what's called The Burger. My husband ate The Basic, four ounce painted hills burger, lettuce, pollo's special sauce, a pickle and american cheese on a brioche bun.
I found everything too salty and there was a ton of bleu cheese oozing everywhere. Hand-cut fries are my favorite but these were covered in salt. This lunch had the potential of being unforgettable but was a little too expensive and salty for my taste.
