Pam's Playlist: Trolley Stop Burger at Trolley Stop
Justin Fox Burks
Jill and Keith Forrester operate Trolley Stop Market as an extension of their mantra, “Know your farmer, know your food.” The restaurant’s eclectic home-cooked menu of wraps, pizzas, and plate lunches proves that farm-to-table cooking can be tasty and affordable.
Nothing says this better than the restaurant’s signature beef burger, a hearty meal-on-a-bun. Turkey and veggie burgers are also available, but I can’t resist the grass-fed beef patty cooked to order and topped with lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese, avocado, and two strips of crunchy bacon. Instead of chips, ask for a side of homemade potato salad, cooked with the skins on and lightly dressed.

The August issue of Memphis magazine is the annual City Guide, a compilation of entertainment, people, and places that help make Memphis a great place to work and live. Highlighting a single restaurant for the issue seemed impossible, so I came up with a playlist of my top-10 dishes of the year. To help plan food-friendly weekends, I'll be posting my picks on Memphis Stew. The photos for the playlist were taken by Justin Fox Burks, who also writes a great food blog called the Chubby Vegetarian.
