The Lower East Side has evolved over the past decade as THE place for nightlife and dining. Less than a year ago, Mikey's Burger opened their doors with a small menu of delicious burgers, fries, hot dogs, and shakes. The small counter and diner décor is retro and quant. The BLT burger (Chinese bacon, kewpie mayo, lettuce, tomato) with American Cheese was one of the best burgers I’ve had in the city. Honestly. Their burgers are all served on warm potato rolls and cooked to perfection right in front of you (I prefer mine medium rare). The bacon was thick cut and full of flavor, the cheese was heavenly melted, and the kewpie mayo was creamy. I dipped my hand cut fries in their chipotle mayo – which is so good it’s dangerous! I only wish they sold it by the jar to take home. Or maybe I don’t wish that for the sake of my hips. Mikey’s Burger. 134 Ludlow St.
