It's hard to decide which of the 37 burgers to try. But someone has to do it! The next burger on this tasty journey is from CRAVE American Kitchen & Sushi Bar. They partnered with the Sioux Falls CTE Academy to create The UnBrieable Burger.  This was a fun burger to try and it's one of the most creative in this year's Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle

According to a previous article from my co-worker Jeff Harkness, The UnBrieable Burger is "a 7-ounce beef patty topped with brie cheese, a cherry merlot sauce, and a puff pastry lid with arugula and a brioche bun."

This was a very tall burger. We didn't know where to begin! You can tell the chefs and inventive minds at CRAVE American Kitchen & Sushi Bar and the Sioux Falls CTE Academy put in a lot of thought with this burger. When you take your first bite, you will taste the cherry merlot sauce immediately. The brioche bun complements the ingredients perfectly. However, due to its placement, the cherry merlot sauce can overwhelm the other intricate flavors, including the namesake brie cheese. The fries make a great side!

Don't forget! Residents can vote for their favorite burgers by Wednesday, January 31st on the DTSF Mobile Passport. Get to eating, Sioux Falls!
