Neighborhood Eats: Burger shack brings strange flavors to Bushwick, Brooklyn

BUSHWICK (WABC) – Troutman Street in Bushwick is industrial, very colorful, and probably not the place you’d think to have a great burger, but that’s where the Strange Flavor Burger Shack has become a home and become a destination.

You’ll notice graffiti and possibly Johnson’s, a bar tucked away from the street, but inside a small wooden shack, food memories are made.

Bill McGovern opened Strange Flavor Burger Shack in 2016 from an idea that arose during a meal of Sichuan dishes with his partner.

The name is an indication of a Sichuan technique and flavor.

“It’s like all the sweet and savory varieties being fermented together,” says McGovern.

And that is the key ingredient that makes up the special sauce on the burger pop, which is also cooked in deep-fried animal style.

“The texture of the burger is crazy. It’s like a total vibe when you come here, and then you get fries,” said one customer. “The food is literally A-one, perfect.”

The burger had peanuts, cilantro, green onions and mala yeast while the bush dog was stoned togarashi.

The chicken bread adds crunch, the chili oil adds heat, and it also has a backing.

“I bit into it and immediately knew this is something I’ll keep coming back to,” another customer said. “It’s definitely a hole in the wall, in the truest sense of the word. A passerby walks in and it changes their life.”

There is an identical vegetarian menu.

Strange Flavor never closes down during the coronavirus pandemic and in fact works pretty well.

“People find us online through delivery apps. We’re busy, so we have a whole new base of people who also love food,” says McGovern.

And they opened a second location inside Broadway, a bar with live music.

“It’s the food that people want when they’re out in the bar, that’s different enough, it’s exciting enough for people to remember it,” says McGovern.

Strange Flavor is open daily from 1pm to 11pm, and if you get lost, someone may be on the way to guide you in.
