1859 & Dine: Oregon's Best Burgers
Spring 2012 Restaurant Reviews
April 1 2012
101 E. Main Street, Medford
A great burger isn’t something you would expect from a tapas restaurant, but Elements Tapas Bar & Lounge in Medford delivers just that. Although complex in nature, this burger melds the flavors of Spain into a singularly savory and satisfying experience. The burger itself is a decadent mixture of lamb, Spanish chorizo, fresh thyme and smoked paprika. After it’s grilled, the burger is topped with Manchego cheese, caramelized onions and piquillo pepper aioli, and then served atop perfectly toasted slider buns, made by SunStone Artisan Bakery in Ashland. Elements lovingly serves its sliders with an assortment of house-made condiments: smoked ketchup, whole-grain mustard, seasonal pickles and fried root vegetable chips. Try it with one of the many local brews on tap.
