Burgers With Buck: Twisted Kitchen

As #BurgersWithBuck nears the century mark, we go outside the box, or perhaps more appropriately…outside the bun.

Twisted Kitchen with locations in Midtown (near the Georgia Tech campus) and Marietta is to pasta what Moe’s or Willie’s is to Mexican fare.  You can go down the line and make it any way that you prefer. 

There is no traditional burger on the menu, so why would #BWB feature a restaurant that is known for pasta?  Because sometimes you just have to mix things up a bit. 

Admittedly, when the staff was first contacted about the Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta at Twisted Kitchen, discussions ensued.  But if there’s one thing you should have learned about the BWB Team through our first 98 editions, we are not scared to color outside the lines.

So let me tell you about the dish.  You choose your preferred pasta, among these options…Cavatappi, Penne, Linguini, Angel Hair, Tri-Color Rotini, Farfalle, Gluten-Free, or Rice Noodles.  OK, now here is where it gets interesting.  Add ground beef meatballs, tomatoes, red onions, cheddar cheese, bacon, and their signature cheese sauce, top it with potato sticks, and add a bread stick (which can serve as a bun if you like to make a sandwich, or a burger out of just about everything like BWB does), and you get the Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta.

You can also put all of those ingredients inside a wrap which give it at least the feel of burger that you eat with your hands rather than utensils.  The great news is if you’re a burger lover (like yours truly), and everyone else wants pasta for lunch, this might be a great option for you in a best of both worlds kind of way.

And, as always, if you have a favorite burger that you would like to see featured on, tell me about it on my Facebook page, and don't forget to use the hash tag #BurgersWithBuck and/or #BWB.
