A brand new burger joint is about to open on Ninth Street in Durham. Burger Bach (pronounced “batch,” as I continue to remind myself) will be opening in the Shops at Erwin Mill on Monday, March 23. Based on a sneak peak of the restaurant and the food, I expect it will become a popular hangout quickly.
Burger Bach is a Virginia-based small chain (Durham is the third location and first in NC) that specializes in grass-fed beef all the way from New Zealand. That might make you think it isn’t fresh, but that’s not the case at all—the meat is chilled, never frozen. The chicken is all free-range. The food isn’t over processed and most of it is organic.
Pescetarians will be pleased that there is also a solid seafood menu, including roasted oysters, oysters on the half shell and sautéed shrimp in some seriously delicious sauces, ranging from spicy for the more adventurous eaters to a traditional butter-based yet flavorful sauce. As much as possible, the restaurant tries to get its seafood from local Virginia-based sources.
