Scare Away E. Coli with Mini-Burgers at L’Orange Bleu

Amid the scare of the mysterious horrible power of E. Coli everyone’s whispering “don’t eat the hamburgers!” Generally I agree, who wants to eat bits of bone fragments and intestines and spinal column? Nastybits do not a delicious sandwich make! This terror built up all week and then Sunday rolled around and I found myself face-to-face with a delicious little hamburger. Suddenly the fear is real: could this innocent little hamburger take away your beloved hands and legs? How much evil could there be in this adorable little morsel?

Not much, I decided. Thankfully I was right, all is well in the limb department. More importantly the little buggers were delicious. L’Orange Bleu (430 Broome St, New York, NY) is a Moroccan-ish restaurant in SoHo that has a wonderful oyster special that I can never resist. They have tables outside that are perfect for watching the parking lot across the street or hoping some anorexic models walk by. After you have a few happy-hour oysters, get these delicious mini-burgers. I expected them to be cooked gray and be a little chewy, after all what do Moroccan’s know about mini-burgers? Everything. These were perfectly cooked to medium, not too greasy and complimented my Sunday fear-test perfectly. Free yourself from the media terror, eat mini-burgers!

(Disclaimer: I have no idea how safe the meat is, but it taste delicious.)

Better quality than I expected for a fairly simple dish:

    What you choose to give as corporate gifts will depend on who you’re giving them to and your industry (average life time value of a client not what’s customary in your industry;
    don’t copy your competitors, it’s rarely a good idea). Most of the
    suppliers offer home delivery feature within a few days of
    placing order.

  13. The most significant factor for your build orders will be the number of Hatcheries
    you have and the Larva that are generated from them.
    Would have been nice to pair the latter with robotics and create the new ‘Asimo”.

    While my own motives to move were honorable,
    I have no doubt that all my wife and family could think about
    was continuing their deception and the huge financial award they would receive from Romney and Stemberg.

    ‘Red Cable Ties’ made from halar are most appropriate for this purpose.
    The answer to the above lies in what these cables can do
    for one. Instead of having to pay three separate bills and deal with three separate companies when you choose Verizons Fi – OS service
    you only have to pay one bill each month.

    Funds were raised for this ambitious scheme and
    two British companies were each contracted to supply
    1250 nautical miles of wire cable which took
    six months to manufacture. Fiber optic cable is not just used for computer networking,
    but also to connect audio devices, as it transmits high quality
    audio signal.

    parents do. They see you placed on your fragrance
    or perfume, and also they want to jump on the bandwagon and
    do the exact same. Disney Fairies Tinkerbell Eau De Toilette
    Spray is a one note fruity scent developed specifically for children. Little women love princesses, and also Disney
    has generated several of the most preferred. Provide your

    any kind of unique celebration.
