11 Sep Lakeview: Exploring Birmingham’s Burger Block
Julia Sayers, AL.com – September 2015
Babalu, a tapas and tacos joint, may not be the first place you think of when you’re looking to get your burger fix, but they offer one that rivals any of the best in town. The Baba Burger features Aspen Ridge Natural Angus beef and is topped with roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions, white cheddar cheese, avocado, Applewood-smoked bacon, and a house-made chipotle aioli. Served on a sweet sourdough bun, the flavors all work together in an unexpected and delightful way. For the vegetarians, Babalu also offers a Black Bean Burger with red chimichurri, grilled red onion ring, arugula, and avocado.
