Last week I celebrated yet another year on this gorgeous earth.
In honor of this momentous occasion, the gang and I ventured out to Rocomamas Bedfordview in search of the aptly named ‘Bedford Bomb’.
The signature red bun should serve as a warning for what lies between the buns.
A juicy, meaty, flavorful yet killer hot smash burger. The key ingredient used is the Caroliner Reaper pepper. This is one of the hottest pepper in the world.
A disclaimer had to be signed and we were given surgical gloves to ensure that we didn’t have any ‘chilli in the eye’ casualties.
The burger arrived with a pungent yet sweet chilli smell….as I bravely took my first bite I thought to myself how delicious this is and not hot at all!!!
It was all good until the moment I swallowed my first bite…. my body temp increased, my ears burned, my eyes teared up and the burning sensation in my mouth won.
I also at some point made the mistake of sucking my lips…BEEEGGG mistake!
The burn spread almost instantly to the delicate skin around my mouth.
Would I have this meal again….hell Yes! I am planning my next meal there.
Even though it was super spicy, it was still divine.
Make sure to order a milkshake or ice cold beer before you tackle this bomb.
I also tried a cookies and scream waffle which was yummy but the burger was def the main attraction.
4/5 is my rating.
Visit the Rocomamas Bedfordview to try out this masterpiece.
