A recent burger outing took me to Dry Creek Cafe in The Heights. When Chef Rishi Singh joined Dry Creek last year, his first task was to reinvent its burger menu. And, in my opinion, Chef Rishi has succeeded. After reading the mouth-watering descriptions, I chose the Bavarian Blue Burger – 100 percent Angus beef, buttery Chiriboga Blue cheese, cider-caramelized onion and apple-wood bacon. It made for a luxurious blend of flavors, topped with a sweet, bakery-fresh bun. The blue cheese was creamy, yet not overpowering, as it was married with the sweetly tangy onions and smoked bacon. Cut in two, the gentle pink center reflected a nicely cooked-to-medium patty. This was a near-flawless burger, matched with a side of tangy broccoli slaw. I appreciated the knowledgeable waiter, ready to offer suggestions and facts to back up his recommendations. Dry Creek is definitely one of Houston’s best burger destinations.
