Robyn should just take my money well in advance. The panda got lured back to Rose City Food Park (NE 52nd and Sandy Blvd) upon seeing a limited-time spicy burger option.
In early February, Robyn introduced the "Sassy Assassin" as a limited-time burger special. It starts with a 1/3 lb patty (and the usual sassy seasoning), melted pepper jack cheese, habanero pico de gallo, wasabi avocado, a spicy mayo (featuring ghost pepper sauce), all on a Portland French Bakery bun.
The ghost pepper sauce in the spicy mayo? Melinda's Naga Jolokia, an all-natural sauce. Excellent choice.
If that wasn't enough heat, the hand-cut fries are seasoned with some ghost pepper salt.
First off, the burger has good size and is killer awesome. Great flavor that would be spicy for a non-chilehead. For people embracing spice, this all but wins the lottery.
The fries are crispy and golden brown. Frankly, I got no real heat from the ghost salt,but again, are my taste buds broken? Probably. Ketchup for the fries? Nope...added more ghost pepper sauce for additional kick!
VIDEO! Enjoy the panda scarfing down the burger and fries!
