Stop 6 of our burger research for Tastetrekkers lands us at The Gallows. (See Trade, LAH, jm Curley, Gibbet Hill Grill, Back Bay Social Club)
Every time we go to The Gallows, it’s packed. Last time we stopped in for a drink we could barely maneuver around the bar area. For some reason this Monday evening it was pretty quiet.
We start with the pulled pork corn muffin ($7) served with jalapeno jelly, avocado and picked red onion. I love all of the southern flavors here – a really nice appetizer to kick off the meal.
The scotch egg ($7) that is wrapped with crispy pork sausage – one word – AMAZING! You just have to try it…there are no words…
Short rib taco ($13) with napa cabbage, nuoc cham, sesami aioli, sriracha and herbs.
Carpet burger ($18) fried oysters, remoulade, iceberg lettuce, picked and American cheese. A little messy, but still delicious. I liked the fried oyster on top, it made the burger stand out from the crowd.
Our waiter comes back and tells us the strawberry glazed donuts are a must try. I loved the glaze of the donut, very flavorful. The actual donut was a little dense for my liking but that didn’t stop us from eating it ;)
The fluffernutter extravaganza ($8) caramelized bananas, peanuts, torched fluff? What’s not to love about this dessert?
