The Hat: Pastrami Chili Fries and Double Cheese Burger ($18) Rating: 8

Mark Lim - Lauren had never been to The Hat so my friends, just like bearded old wise men, regaled her with stories of the mythical Pastrami Chili Fries Monster that lived at the heart of the eatery. After listening to the tales we started our journey.

It was a long and epic battle at the drive thru but I was able to capture the beast with my ATM card. On our way home Lauren tried to sneak a peek at the mound of pastrami and chili wrapped in butcher paper but I had to stop her. "Don't disturb it." I said. "You'll wake it."

When we got home I showed her what my friends meant:

This is the $12 pastrami, chili, cheese, french fries, tomatoes, onions, and pickles monster.

I think we've made it angry

I stab you with my +5 Strength Fork of Doom!

Eating the remains and giving the gods of finance (Suze Orman) a sacred offering.

The entrails

AND a Double cheese burger! Geez!

The super awesomely salty world famous Pastrami complimented the slightly smooth and creamy meat chili. The tomatoes were sweet and the pickles completed the flavor rainbow with a much needed sour kick in the face.

The hamburger was really good as well. It has two large meat patties covered in cheese, lettuce, onions, and a nice sweet and tangy mayo sauce. It rocks.

I love The Hat but it's one of those places that you have to gorge yourself to the point where you say, "I'm not going back there for a month." to fully experience it.

If you've never been to the hat and love pastrami you've got to go. I suggest you get the world famous pastrami sandwich and gravy fries. I will next month!

Be Fat! Be Happy!

The pastrami looks so much like someone performed a drive by hari kari on someone spilling their entrails everywhere.

It takes years of training to be this hungry.
