This Week's Burger Citywide at Rex 1516 Is Burger Royalty

Two words: "Ramp jam."

The guest chef series of the Burger Citywide special at Rex 1516 rolls on this week with what is basically the burger equivalent of the royal baby: It's a collaboration between Rex chef Justin Swain, last year's champ at the Battle of the Burger, and Blue Duck chef Kris Serviss, who nabbed the People's Choice award at last year's Burger Brawl. (The next Brawl is coming up on Sunday, June 14, by the way. Details and tickets here.)

The "This Shiitake Is My Jam" burger comes topped with Gouda cheese, jalapeno bacon from 1732 Meats, shiitake mushrooms, and ramp jam. It's available Tuesday, May 12 and Wednesday, May 13 at Rex, and comes with a beer and a shot (plus a choice of fries or a salad) for $15. (If you miss this week's, bear in mind the Burger Citywide special is available Monday through Wednesday of each week, featuring Rex's signature pimento cheeseburger on Mondays and a different special every Tuesday and Wednesday.)
