Borough- New York Comfort Food

We decided to have our lunch at Borough using the Deal Grocer coupon that was already near expiration. It was also a perfect place since it was just a walk away from my office.

The deal features Borough’s scrumptious Buffalo WingsAll-Beef Cheeseburger and Mom’s Milk & Cookies Dessert. 

Borough is located inside Podium beside Gloria Maris. We were taken to our seats and noticed that most of the diners were young professionals. The atmosphere was comforting and cozy with its dimmed lights. We showed our coupon and the waitress politely asked for an id. Another smooth and hassle-free transaction from Deal Grocer.

We were served some water and was asked how we like our burger done. We chose medium well since we don't want blood oozing out from our burger yet still wanted it to be tender and juicy. Some moments later, our All Beef Cheeseburger(P400) was served. The whole thing was served atop a wooden plate with vintage paper that seems to be a map of New York. There was a generous amount of crispy fries inside a brown paper bag,  the lettuce and tomatoes were fresh, and the burger was big enough with cheese oozing out on the sides.

Borough's All Beef CheeseBurger with Fries

100% All Beef CheeseBurger (P400)

I seldom eat burgers but this I must say is really good. It was not too salty and the texture was really soft. Truly a mouth-watering burger!

Next came our Buffalo Wings(P300). I was eager to try out their Chocolate Buffalo Wings but only the ordinary buffalo wings is included in the coupon. ( Gives me a reason to go back and try their Chocolate Wings)

Buffalo Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese and Veggie Sticks

I loved their wings! It came in 6 pieces with veggie sticks on the side. At first, I thought that it was just ordinary fried chicken wings. But as soon as I got a bite into it, a hint of spiciness kicked in. I have a high tolerance on spicy food that is why I would not say that the wings were really spicy. Charlie's nuclear wings are Spicy. I also loved their bleu cheese. It neutralizes the spiciness of the wings and it was a great dip for the carrot and celery sticks. (Reminded me of Charlie's too).

Lastly, to end our meal was Mom's Milk and Cookies(P170). It was served hot and seemed freshly baked when the waitress placed it on our table. Then, she poured some milk in two shot glasses and placed the bottle back to the ice bucket.

The cookies came in 3 flavors:

Chocolate Chip Cookies- My personal favorite :)
Dark Chocolate Cookies
Spiced Ginger Cookies- reminded me of Mark's & Spencer's Ginger biscuits only softer.

Mom's Milk and Cookies (P170)

Freshly baked.

Their cookies were soft and chewy. It was quite sweet for my taste but I didn't mind because it was still good. One of the best freshly baked cookies I ever had.

Now you see it...

And now you don't.

The milk was a perfect pair to go along with the cookies. We dunked each cookie into the shot glass before we bite on to one. It was delicious! It made the cookie softer and moist. The milk tasted like fresh milk with vanilla that gave a hint of sweetness in it.

We will definitely go back to this place. Hopefully Deal Grocer comes up with a new deal from Borough again.
