While I was in DC, my friends and I popped into Good Stuff Eatery for a quick dinner. It was raining cats and dogs, and this place was conveniently located on the ground level of my friends’ apartment where I was crashing. Good Stuff Eatery is DC based chef and Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn’s burger chain, and apparently kind of a big deal in DC (or at least that’s how my friends made it sound).
I got the Vegetarians are People Too ‘Shroom Burger ($6.98) plus the snack fries and soda combo ($4.45). The fries were rather sad and soggy, and I could have done without them. The burger? When I think of ‘shroom burgers, Shake Shack immediately comes to mind (duh), and their shroom burger is a tough one to beat. Good Stuff’s portobello burger is very similar with muenster and cheddar cheese, then fried with panko. Ehh, I wish the cheese were warm and gooey, but it wasn’t. Overall, the burger seemed like it was lacking something. Meh, it just didn’t do it for me. Not sure if it’s just this location or Good Stuff Eatery in general, but based on this visit, I’d say they don’t serve very good stuff. (Har har har.)
