My Review of BurGR at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas
Of the different celebrity chefs I follow, Gordon Ramsay has never been one who caught my interest.
I’ve seen a couple episodes of Kitchen Nightmares and Hell’s Kitchen, and I’ve watched Ramsay make guest appearances on a few other shows, but he’s never really had my attention.
This isn’t a knock against him. I’d just rather learn more about his cooking and his food instead of what he thinks about other people’s cooking.
I’d read great things about BurGR leading up to our trip to Vegas and hoped for an opportunity to be able to fit a visit into the schedule. In terms of going for a meal, we weren’t able to make that happen.
However, I refused to be denied of an opportunity to try one of the restaurant’s milkshakes.
It was after 11pm and the restaurant, which is located in the Planet Hollywood Resort on The Strip, had people in line waiting for a tables that probably wouldn’t be available for at least an hour.
Luckily, I was able to find a helpful bartender who took my order for a milkshake to go.
This milkshake consisted of a chocolate base with caramel pudding, fresh whipped cream and a toffee cookie. I had high hopes.
For a $9 milkshake, one shouldn’t have anything but high hopes!
It took quite a while to receive my order because the bar and restaurant were both incredibly crowded, but it was well worth the wait.
After working at an ice cream shop for a period of time, I became somewhat of a milkshake-making expert. (There really isn’t much to it, but humor me here.) I’ve also been a lover of milkshakes for many years and feel qualified to discuss the subject.
The milkshake from BurGR was one of the best I’ve ever had.
The chocolate was velvety-rich, but the best part was the creamy consistency from the caramel pudding. The pudding is really what sets the entire shake apart. Then, it was made even thicker when I stirred in the fresh whipped cream.
It was about as thick as possible while still being drinkable through a straw without giving yourself a headache. Cook-Out could learn a few things about this technique.
I wasn’t able to finish the shake because it was so incredibly rich, but I still enjoyed every bit of it that I was able to consume.
This may have been my one and only experience at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant, and if that’s the case, BurGR sure did provide a great impression.
