Craig LaBan Calls Kensington Quarters' Burger 'Contender for Best in Philly'

With grass-fed beef and a "pain au lait" bun, it's a winner.

Burger enthusiasts, take note.

Craig LaBan tweeted his praise for Fishtown's eatery and butcher shop Kensington Quarters' hamburger this afternoon, calling it, "a contender for best in Philly."

He commended chef Damon Menapace for putting care and skill into each component and explained why this burger should rank among Philly's best. He loved the soft and sturdy bun. He loved the fat-forward grass-fed meat. He loved, well, everything:

With an understated raw-milk cheddar, a tangy garlic aioli schmear, and a mop of onions glazed in vinegar-piqued molten tallow, this gorgeous fistful of a half-pound beauty has the umami punch to haunt my taste buds for an afternoon.

Kensington Quarters is open for lunch Tuesday through Friday from noon - 3:00 p.m. and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
