Sioux Falls Burger Battle: ‘Truffle Jam Burger’ from Crawford’s
January in Sioux Falls only means one thing...Burger Battle! This year's Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle is pretty intense. 32 savory burgers from local Sioux Falls restaurants are looking for your stomachs and votes.
When it comes to burgers, there definitely is one for everyone, especially in Sioux Falls! Sponsored by First Western Bank & Trust, the 10th annual Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle features burgers residents can sink their teeth into. Looking to satisfy your sweet tooth or a little extra heat with your meat? You'll find it on this year's Burger Battle ballot.
This next burger called the "Truffle Jam Burger" comes from Crawford's. This is another Burger Battle first for me! This is my first burger from Crawford's during the January competition. Anything with truffle as an ingredient sounds delicious to me.
According to a previous article from my co-worker Jeff Harkness, the Truffle Jam is a "Pretzel bun, prime beef patty, tomato pepper jam, baby arugula, jalapeño bacon, and black truffle cheese. Finished with Truffle parmesan chips." You would think this burger would be a little spicy with the jalapeño bacon. However, the flavors balance out perfectly and you can barely taste the jalapeño.
One of my favorite parts about this burger was the pretzel bun. It complimented the black truffle cheese and the baby arugula. It was also easy to eat despite the juicy patty and the toppings with it. The service was top-notch. It was a busy Saturday night, however the waitress always came around to check-in during our meal. She was very accommodating. Overall, it's another great burger in this year's Burger Battle!
