I just love that we now have Sesame Burgers and Beer right by us here in West Ashley. It’s just down the road, located right inside the doors of Citadel Mall. We used to have to go all the way to Park Circle in North Charleston to partake of the offerings of Sesame. But now, all that has changed. And it appears to have been a wise decision for Sesame Burgers and Beer. Mr. R and I arrived at Sesame today (a Saturday) at around 11:30am, and by 11:45 nearly every table was taken (including those outside, in the 95 degree heat!). By 12:30 or so, when we left, there were even people waiting outside the doors in order to get in. Way to go, Sesame! Looks like you were just what we needed here West of the Ashley!
After my heart-healthy red wine and high-fiber black bean burger, I was ready to move on to DESSERT (oh yeah!). And I couldn’t believe my luck: the special dessert of the day was chocolate chip cheesecake. No way was I gonna pass that up! This chip-filled treat was the real deal, and I’m confident it had never seen the inside of a freezer. My chocolate chip cheesecake was quite a generous hunk (and it takes a lot for me to judge a dessert size as “generous”!). It was chock-full of big melted chocolate chips, had a nice graham cracker crust and a great creamy texture, and it tasted fantastic. I would love it if this chocolate chip cheesecake became part of the regular dessert menu repertoire (please! oh please!). Richard ordered a vanilla shake (boring, IMHO! He claims it’s not boring – it’s pure and there’s nothing boring about purity). I didn’t try it (I was too busy scarfing down my big ol’ hunk o’cheesecake). But that shake looked quite tasty, and Mr. R seemed quite thrilled with it.
I have a feeling we’ll be returning regularly to Sesame Burgers and Beer (or in my case, wine will do). The food was excellent, the service good, and the bill was fairly easy on the pocketbook (mine, not Mr. R’s).
