Gordon Ramsay BurGR

I had received an e-mail from a fellow food blogger, Michael, of S.O.F.A.T. Blog asking if I wanted to have dinner with him.  I had never had an invitation from a food blogger before to go eat out, so I said yes (might as well try something new!).  One of his suggestions of places to eat at was Gordan Ramsay BurGR in Planet Hollywood.  I haven't been to any of Ramsay's restaurants, so I was curious to eat there and wanted to see what the hype was all about.

Since I was with another food blogger, I was compelled to take a lot of photos:

The entrance - love the ceiling!

The screen menu in front of the restaurant

The menu

All menus had different photos on the back and they
were souvenirs!

Ready to eat!

Roasted Jalapeño Poppers- All came with bacon,
cheddar ranch, and one fiery surprise.  Since there was four of
us, one of us got the fiery surprise (this jalapeño had a lot of
 seeds)... And it wasn't me!

OHH look at the cheese oozing haha

We all shared the Kale Granny-Apple Caesar Salad-
topped with parmigiano-reggiano cheese+mini herb-
garlic croutons.  The dressing was mild and the cheese
complimented it well.  Since we were all going to eat a
lot of meat, fried foods, and dessert, I wanted to
 balance the meal with some fiber!

Our second appetizer was Fury Chicken Wings- comes with
four tangy hellfire blue cheese wings+four honey
wasabi wings.  I liked both of these, the sauces were
quite awesome.

The waiter left us with this iPad to look for drinks to order!

My friend had this drink, I think it
had 'super antioxidant' in the name?

The Britannia Burger- comes with English sharp cheddar
(my favorite)+mango chutney+arugula+Brioche bun

If you notice in this photo, there is NO sauce whatsoever.
The meat is also not seasoned!
The flavors are fused in from the grill+wood (applewood and alderwood).  I couldn't believe
it after the first bite, there was soo much flavor! The cheese,
chutney, and arugula were delicious companions to the
beef.  The burger was grilled exactly to my liking and the bun was
perfecto!  It was slightly puffy.

I got the Just Fries- they're hand cut,
comes with chipotle ketchup+curry ketchup.
These two ketchups should be sold
everywhere!  They both added a nice kick to
the fries.

All of our foods!

Me and Michael each had a our sugar fixes by having the
Sticky Toffee Pudding Push Up Pops- Salted peanut ice
cream in a push up pop.  I felt like a kid again!  I could
distinctly taste the sweetness of the ice cream/toffee and
 the salty peanut at the same time, I loved it!

I honestly can say this is one of my favorite burger joints in Las Vegas!  Even though this place serves gourmet style food, it has a casual atmosphere so you don't have to worry about dressing ultra nice.  Also the service here was outstanding, our waiter knew every single detail of the items we were interested in ordering!
