The Bruxie Burger, $6.95: An angus beef patty with cheddar cheese, sliced tomatoes, pickles, mayo and lettuce. Pictured here with a vanilla cream soda (made with pure cane sugar) and waffle fries fried in 100-percent peanut oil.
Bruxie is the latest eatery to hit Old Towne Orange--but it's also one its most unique. With its offering of gourmet waffle sandwiches and real deal frozen custard, we here at the Weekly are pretty enamored. To quote food critic Shuji Sakai: "Even though nothing on the menu costs more than $8, it's obvious [Bruxie is] using premium ingredients (the smoked salmon, the prosciutto, the chocolate, the cane-sugar-sweetened fountain drinks made by an Orange County soda company) and prepare the food with technical precision."
