For anyone that believes in the simple pleasure of a cheeseburger, this one is for you! Palena Cafe has long been known for a number of standout dishes, and I was happy to have tried The Palena Cheesebuger ($13) a few months ago with my friend S.
I wasn't really sure what to expect when I ordered - a cheeseburger, sure, but anything else that makes this dish special? Turns out, no, not really, haha. I did like the pickled vegetables on the side, but it's clear that the cheeseburger is meant to stand out on its own. The meat was rich and correctly cooked to order, with a nice sturdy bun to hold everything together. This is one hefty and delicious cheeseburger and I'm happy to have tried it out!
