I had the opportunity to use another coupon from my welcome basket when I met a friend for lunch at the Bluffs Bakery, located at 1520 Broadway. I’d seen an online review of the Gering Bakery, which supplies the goods sold in the Scottsbluff store, so I was intrigued by the “cabbage burger” on the menu. It’s not a burger in a traditional sense; it’s a loose-meat bread-pocket sandwich similar to a Runza.
Similar, but not comparable.
Both have gluteny white bread that sticks to the roof of your mouth, and both have the ground beef, but the cabbage burger has cabbage!
As a descendant of German immigrants myself, I believe I possess the same “cabbage-as-comfort-food” neurons as a good portion of the population around Scottsbluff. When I was young, I *loved* sauerkraut. My grandpa called me “the sauerkraut kid”. One of my favorite sandwiches is a reuben decked out in crunchy sauerkraut. One of my favorite east Asian foods: kimchee.
I ♥ cabbage burgers! (Runza? Ick! Ptooey!)
The best part is, my coupon also allows me a free sandwich down at the Gering Bakery. This time, I will drag the husband out to experience the glory of the cabbage burger.
Oh, and I hear they have really good doughnuts. I’ve got a coupon for that, too.
